Fan Affection for Sale

Saw in SI’s Extra Mustard, a fan is selling his allegiance. Seems the fan has some feelings which he describes as thus:

Imagine being in love with a beautiful, majestic woman. Imagine that every day for twenty years, you have learned everything there is to know about her, written songs about her, showered her with gifts, dreamt of her every single night and made her your number one object of affection.

Imagine that during the entirety of the twenty years, she strung you along, giving you false hope time and time again that you could be together. She would accompany you on dates, accept your gifts, occasionally take you to meet her family, kiss you on the cheek; and then she would crush your heart and soul by telling you that it wasn’t going to work, she had moved on, found someone else. Yet each year she would come back and tell you that she wanted you back, that she wanted to be with you, that she wanted another chance…and you gave it to her.

This my friends, is an Eagles fan. It has to be a fake. Last I heard, the Eagles controlled their own destiny for the playoffs. Two wins and they are in. And he’s trying to sell his fanship? What a joke.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
