OV Pic of the Day: You Have to Support the Team

I’ve never understood face-painting.  

Maybe it’s because I’m a Cubs fan and I usually end up having nothing to brag about, but I just don’t know what someone does when they paint their face to go to a sporting event and then their team gets beat handily.  I have a hard time wearing a shirt or hat with a Cubs logo after they lose, so the painting of the face just makes no sense to me at all.

It never seemed like today’s game was in much doubt once the Brewers took the lead, so this kid must be pretty depressed right now.

Plus, why did he paint a target on his face?  I mean, I know it makes a certain amount of sense given the state of the team, but I wouldn’t expect a face-painter to be that self-aware.  Maybe he lost a bet.
