Give me a break. Just because people don't think this team is the train wreck you've been trying to tell us it is, doesn't mean they have unrealistically wild expectations.
I think we'll finish second too.
I just feel the gap between first and second is a lot larger than people are realizing.
Edit: oh, and viciedo sucks.
