Lolcow (n) - A person or group of people laughed at for actions that they take, despite not trying to be funny. They may try to take themselves seriously, but they are often "milked" for laughs with or without their knowledge.
What a tragic reversal of fortune: To go from one goal away from making it to the Stanley Cup Final... to being banished to the pits of despair. The Senators season has been a disaster in so many ways that it's hard to keep track. Add in a terrible owner who dangles relocation before a marquee event... and you have misery in bundles.
I don't think any fanbase deserves this.
