I don’t really talk about politics very much. It’s like religion–too personal and sensitive a subject for most to have a rational conversation about it. Think about it: you have all of these people back ideas and people just because of the name of the party they belong to. ”I’m a republican”. ”I’m a democrat”. Blah. Blah. Blah. Seriously? Personally I could give two craps about party lines; if an idea is a good one, it’s a good one and if it’s a bad one, it’s a bad one plain and simple. Screw the fact that it came from someone in another “party”. If you don’t think for yourself, blindly following someone to such a degree that you have your nose up their ass on the sole basis of group affiliation…. wait I’m getting carried away here….
Sports like hockey, football, baseball, basketball, soccer (fútbol for those outside the US) and others are about team, and trying to succeed as such. It’s the perfect combination of individual talent coming together to fill specific roles which leads to success and eventually championships. Among the four major team sporting leagues, the winning of a championship is punctuated by the parade down the streets of the winning city to celebrate with the fans, followed by the traditional visit to the White House to be recognized by the sitting President himself (or herself as the case should eventually become).
