How I Pick Sports Teams

So the Saints have won the Super Bowl. I’m not going to pretend I’m happy about that. I was rooting for the Colts, but it’s not that I like them. I couldn’t care less about these two franchises. After my actual teams I cheer for, I look for teams to cheer against.

My NCAA grudges carry over into the professional leagues. So for teams that draft USC Trojans, they get an automatic booing from me for five years. Reggie Bush is why I wanted New Orleans to lose. A win would have been sweeter, but Reggie’s almost no show performance was an okay second for me.

Now that football season is over, it’s time to shift my focus back to basketball. Time to heckle OJ Mayo and the Memphis Grizzlies, even if they have no chance of winning.
