5. Football fans. Last night was the last game of the season, which means football fans have to wait a whole year for the drama, the build-up, and the ultimate disappointment of an extremely boring championship game. On their very first offensive play, the Denver Broncos gave up a safety. They never recovered, scoring only one touchdown in between commercials, and losing to the Seattle Seahawks 43 to 8. That 35-point difference is the third largest margin a team has ever won the Big Game by. I'm not sure whether to feel worse for football fans who wanted an interesting game or people who paid for commercials in the second half. —SRD

4. Ron Weasley.  JK Rowling revealed in an interview with the UK's The Sunday Times that Hermione's romance with Ron was "wish fulfillment" for her, and a hangover from her original vision for the series during Book 1. As she continued to write the series, however, her vision apparently matured—except for her desire for Ron, the Duckie of the Harry Potter universe—to end up with the pretty, brainy Hermione. Now she doubts that it would really work out when Hermione could have had the most famous person in their universe. To make matters worse, even Emma Watson doubts Ron could have actually made Hermione happy. The Duckie analogy is especially apt, since Jon Hughes originally had Jon Cryer's whiny best friend character end up with Molly Ringwald in Pretty In Pink, only for audiences to rebel and demand she end up with the douche-y rich kid. In Ron's defense, he's probably tied with Hermione for second-most-famous-person in the wizard world. I'm sure he'll end up OK after the divorce. —JMC
