“Trapped mainly by wanting things to be exactly as they are, only better”

In sports, as in life, we often are paralyzed by not wanting real change.  We want our players back every season, but want them to be better, have more wins, closer chemistry.  But that isn’t ever possible.  Teams change, players retire, talent wanes. And sometimes your best just isn’t good enough, and it never will be without major change.  Sometimes we want to hold on so badly to the status quo, but forget that there are limitations and qualifications that come along with stagnancy.  Sometimes we accept mediocrity at the expense of losing out on something great.  Sometimes nostalgia and “heart” are used as excuses to keep teams together long past their prime.  And change is always hard, whether you’re letting someone go or letting someone in.  The best we can all do is keep an open mind and an open heart and hope for better days to come.
