Hey there, time traveller!

I am getting tired of the seeming low expectations of both of Winnipeg's professional sports organizations, the Jets and the Blue Bombers. It seems that both these organizations are content with just making the playoffs and the fans also should be content with this.
I find it disturbing when hockey cities like Vancouver, Chicago, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Los Angeles set their goal as not only making the playoffs but also winning the Stanley Cup. Jets coach Claude Noel recently stated he would be satisfied with a three-win-two-loss win start to our season. This doesn't sound like the expectation of a championship team.
The Bombers are asking fans to be patient. But Montreal fired its new coach early in the season and made changes quickly when the organization wasn't satisfied with the team's performance.
If goals are set low, then that is what you get: teams that don't reach championship status.
