Les Bowen, a cold-water splash on your birthday candle, put all the preseason hype in its proper context and basically told fans “STOP BEING SO EXCITED, DAMMIT, YOU’RE BEING TOO LOUD WHILE I’M TRYING TO WRITE!”

One sentiment on which I agree with Les: We shouldn’t just focus on the goal. This has a chance to be a special season. We should enjoy the ride. But there’s absolutely no reason to withhold your excitement until January. So please ignore whatever that curmudgeon tells you.
