whomever's team loses, they become an honorary fan of the other team.
Well, we do root for the other one's team. But you can't fake love. During Game 6, her family watched the game at our place, and it was like watching someone die. But here's the thing, as soon as the game was over, I was pretty much over it. It didn't stick with me because I didn't have a lifetime invested with the team like they did. I would've preferred the Rangers to have won, but I didn't live and die by it. It didn't matter all that much to me. I like the Rangers, but I don't love them. Same with her and the O's. She's gone to Baltimore and seen some games with me, and she'll watch 'em when they are on TV, but she's not too wrapped up in the game.
Mrs. Baloo and her family were just gutted after Game 6. It was like a wake. I calmly cleaned the broken glass and got another beer.
