I'm a Cubs fan, so I'm supposed to be predisposed to hating Ryan Braun with the white hot fire of a million distant suns. I'm also supposed to rage hate his entire existence because he cheated at baseball--let's clarify, though. I don't hate him because he cheated, because he's just one guy that got...
