~I have said many times that “Politics is my sports”, but this year the Super Bowl is on my radar because A: the Steelers beat the Jets and I fuckin' hate the Jets. And B: they're playing the Packers and that's Le-Le's home town team.
I hate the Jets for the same reason I hate the Dodgers; they abandoned New York. The Jets are based outta Joisy and so their title 'New York' is a fuckin' lie. The Dodgers are even worse because they are complicit in the destruction of a neighborhood.
Baseball is the only sport I which I have any true interest and then only live games. I hate televised sports because of the endless yammering of the announcers. It ain't radio, ya fucking logarrheic cocksuckers!
To me baseball has a Zen quality because that which does not happen is often as important as that which does. And such really needs a live game. However, I did watch the 2004 World Series, the Red Sox vs the Cardinals, but that was History and therefore required viewing.
Back in 1996 I worked as the mail-room supervisor at this loony sales company and the boss gave me the power to keep the salesmen out of the mail-room 'by any means necessary'. The whole operation was an investment scam run by a high functioning drunk and coke fiend, so I fit in perfectly.
Anyway, one day at the lunch truck one of the new salesmen – the boss fired and replaced them all each month – asked me what I thought of the Yankees winning the Pennant. It was known that I was from New York, so I knew he was trying to 'bond'.
The mail-room crew all stepped back smirking. I looked at him with a sneer and said in my best Nu Yawk, “You know what, buddy? Fuck the Yankees! And while yer at it, fuck the Dodgers, too!”
