Go Team in Blue!


I’m so anxious. My team that wears blue, they have a big game today against their archnemesis. My team in blue is a good team, a strong team, but like any team they have flaws. Sometimes they make dumb play calls, and sometimes they stumble on execution. They’ve lost some games they should have won, but they’re my team and I am loyal to them. It’s going to be a really tough game and I wish I didn’t have to watch because, well, the nerves, the uncertainty of the outcome. It’s enough to lay you low. I want so badly for them to win. Not just because I’m a fan of this team, but I think others would be better off if they came over to my side and cheered for my team in blue. We would welcome more fans. We would love to have you. If only I could close my eyes and when I open them again the game is over and my team has won, but it doesn’t work that way. I have to watch the game, I have to hold up my sign, I have to cast my spell and hope enough other fans cast their spells and the stars align and our team wins. Go team in blue! Go out there and win!
