To think, he was on the waiting list for being a Patriots fan.
When a football team loses, it's well-known that heart attacks, DUIs, assault and other nasty things go way up in their hometowns that night. While this has been understood for decades, Sam Lickteig is using his death to shine a light on the horrible disease known as Chronically Sucking Franchise Syndrome. Like tobacco companies, the owners of terrible sports teams go to great lengths to hide the effects of CSFS. CSFS victims live their whole lives dreading the depression and pain that sets in during the team's season. There are good weeks and bad weeks, and once every few decades the disease goes all the way into remission, only to cause even more painful disappointment for the next five to ten years. Thank you, Sam Lickteig. You have helped millions.
