Have you heard it? Or noticed it? You should have it’s starting to leak out all over the place. –The players are no longer talking about making the playoffs………………….They are talking about THE CUP.
I don’t know where it’s coming from and frankly I don’t care. There has been a paradigm shift. That’s a damn fancy word for a change in thinking. There’s a bit of a swagger showing, there is a bit of confidence showing, the kind of swagger and confidence the NY Yankees used to have when they walked on the field, they knew they could win and they expected to. It’s here and it’s oozing out of the dressing room.
Fans are used to thinking about the bottom rung of the ladder to the playoffs. The players are now thinking about the top rung, where you grab the brass ring.
As the season starts let’s just say …… GO JACKETS!!!
