Being a fan of the pinnacle of major league baseball is never bad- you have tradition, pride, and more fans than all of the team's in the country combined (and haters).
Also being a fan of a team with tradition (for example, myself with UK basketball), means you don't always have to worry about the present letdowns, you can look back on the past and all that your program has accomplished.
Trust me, it may not be glitz and glamor all the time, but you still have more than most other true fans could ever dream of. Be thankful
but when does the past become too far back? i mean, sure its great having 26 titles (more than bawston) but its not that relevant 6,7,8 years in the future if u cant win number 27 and so on. if the reds won the WS this year, it would mean more to you to win that one then me remembering all the 26 titles. we're sorta just another team now, like the rest of the MLB...except we're stacked.
