Wait Till Next Year
We got seriously pummelled in the past, things have looked bleak, but ...
"HERE’S what happens next. The oil companies are now going to go on the rampage to find new oil sources. A decade from now, gallons of the black stuff will be coming out of our ears, and the price will plummet.

HERE’S what happens next. You guys are now going to go on a rampage to get in shape for next year. In no time at all, strength, speed, quickness, and endurance are going to start coming out of your ears, and our team's confidence will skyrocket. Meantime, things may get a little rocky and you're going to feel like quitting, but hopefully we will not get as depressed as when we were losing.
