You’re The Only Ones Left, Vikings & Lions.
These last few years have been tough on your boy. I’ve lost a lot of things I enjoy from sports in the past few years. When I say enjoy, it’s cheering against a team to lose and see the reaction after it. Let’s just call them sports joys in seeing the pain of others fuel you to be happy. These aren’t just your run-of-the-mill rivalries, rather, something that you’ve built up through the years in taking pleasure to see people fail. Sergio Garcia winning The Masters is another thing off my list that’s been taken away from me in the last year.
It starts with LeBron James and Cleveland. It’s not that I hated Bron, rather, his career has always been bothersome. I know from people Browns are what matters in the city of Cleveland, but when you really think about the streak of success with Indians and Cavaliers would be enough for me. Like if Brewers and Bucks were great while Packers suck, I could live with myself, yet we still have these crybaby stories about Cleveland.
Next, Chicago Cubs winning a World Series taking a major dent out of talking shit to those fans about not winning a title. To make matters worst, Brewers are the only NL Central team without a title. We still have St. Louis Cardinals, and their fan base to make fun of though.
Now, Sergio is off the list of things I could laugh at. I talked so much shit on Saturday night hoping for a Garcia 80, and that didn’t happen at all. Rather, Garcia came back in impressive fashion to win the whole thing (PS I have a post tomorrow outlining my thoughts on it). Who can hate in golf now? There isn’t one really. Unless someone pisses me off in international competition in the near future, I don’t know who that person is for me. I’ll still root against Sergio.
The only thing I can hold on to is the fact Minnesota Vikings have never won a Super Bowl, and Detroit Lions have to be there. They are the last of the hate mohicans. If we lose either of those, I’m not sure what I’ll do with myself. At some point, it’s going to happen, and I’ll live with it, but that’s all I got.
Growing up sucks.
