Last night, I posted this picture on Facebook and proceeded to get a world of shit for it. More often than not, I get a ton of crap for rooting for too many teams. First of all, allow me to ask why all these people I’m friends with who did NOT go to Notre Dame were posting “Go Irish,” but I’m not allowed to root for Michigan when my mom went there?
Second of all, if you have a problem with teams I root for, well, nothing is going to change so I suggest you invest in lots of hard alcohol to deal with it.
I root for Miami because I went there, Villanova because I worked there, the Boston pro-teams because I’m from there. But yes, I adopted Chicago teams because I’ve lived here for five years and love this city more than I can tell you.
Do I root for too many teams? Maybe. Is there a point to this post? I’m not sure. I love sports, and I try to not be a bandwagon fan, but it’s FUN when your teams are winning, and when they’re sucking the life out of you by not being able to score and the starting pitchers unable to find the strike zone with Google Maps, it’s okay to take a break and focus on something else.
I now leave you with a Will & Grace montage.
