The World Series is upon us today and the Tigers are playing against the San Francisco Giants. While the Giants were still in the playoffs, my mother - a devoted Dodger fan - told me she was rooting for them because they were the other California team. Unacceptable. There is no bigger Dodger rival than the Giants. A Dodger fan is simply not allowed to do this. Then? On Facebook? Another Dodger fan said the same shit about this series. Are you fucking kidding me?
I have been to the San Francisco stadium ONCE in my life just because I would like to go to all the stadiums before I die. When we were there, we got heckled to death by the Giants fans. And not just good-natured heckling. Cuss words and middle fingers. Yeah. No thanks. I am also not an in-your-face fan. If the Dodgers are in first place or winning a series, I'm happy but not gloating. I can't say the same for the friends of mine on Facebook that root for San Francisco. Thus, I will be rooting for the Detroit Tigers tonight. Holding it down for my man and all his relatives. And secretly flipping off the Giants. Teehee.
