How to cope with a losing season


I realize this seems premature, since the Rockets' season is only 13 games in. However, it may be of importance to those who could be getting lost in what has turned into a torturous exhibition of basketball in this 2010-2011 season. So, to start this off I'll suggest that fans find a way of coping with the Rockets' losing season by watching some good ol' college basketball.

Some of you may already be watching college ball, but for those that don't already have any predisposition towards one school or team, then you're at an advantage because you wouldn't want to burden yourself under more stress if that team begins losing too.

The justification for watching college ball is therapeutic and serves as research you can apply when the upcoming NBA draft arrives. A draft which the Rockets have at least two opportunities to capitalize on, so you'll be well informed on who the Rockets may draft and if it's one of the players you've already identified as being a promising prospect for the Rockets it can help revive your love for the Rockets and give you new hope for that 2011-2012 season. 

I also think that watching college ball, no matter what teams are playing gives basketball fans an opportunity to rediscover what they first loved about the game. All the young guys out there tend to play with a level of intensity that often times gets lost in the professional realm. So, it could be a nice change.  If anybody else has suggestions for how to cope with a losing season, feel free to share them. I'm sure I'll hear a handful of suggestions that incorporate drinking games based on Adelman starting the Chuck Wagon at Center, Lowry shooting a 3 pointer, or Battier scoring at any point of the game.
