I don’t usually post personal items here but I decided it was time you got to know me a bit. So know this: Generally I don’t like team sports. I love MMA, wrestling (Olympic and Greco-Roman), judo, Tae Kwon Do, gymnastics and most other solo sports. But I’m not big on team sports. Not big at all. But there are exceptions. I’m coming to like the Washington Nationals because of their “all for 1 and 1 for all” mentality. They don’t trash the ones who left. They treat each other with dignity and respect. I like that.
On The Other Hand, there are some teams I always bet against. Usually those are from New England. Why? Not for any particular reason. It’s not even that I don’t like them or feel that they are disrespectful. It’s that one of my best friends is a complete and utter fanatic about them. I can always count on him to rise to the occasion if I disparage the NE Patriots (he thinks Wes Welker should have been pope) or the Boston Red Sux. I can always count on him to make bets that give me a good advantage (so far he owes me 3 dinners at the restaurant I get to pick <smirk>). Anyway, I just thought I should introduce my bad Nattitude to you all as baseball season kicks off.
