It’s hard to pick a more hated team between the Mets and Phillies. I believe, if my knowledge of history is accurate, former President FDR was faced with a similar decision many many years before my time, Germany or Japan. FDR decided why hate/destroy just one when you can hate/destroy both… Fuming with national pride after the recent holiday, I will be very FDR-like and vow to hate both equally and hope for the destruction of both come October. Go Braves.
Who got the worse deal this offseason, Cavs fans or Hawks fans? I think Hawks fans. Cavs fans can now stop worrying about the playoffs, whereas Hawks fans get to look forward to certain disappointment in the playoffs for the remainder of Joe Johnson’s contract. (For the record, I am a Hawks fan)
Mara, in gambling, it means you’ve won, say, a thousand dollars from the Casino. So you put your own money that you brought to gamble with back in your wallet and spend the rest of the night “Playing with house money” because you can’t lose any of your own. The house means, you know, the establishment, as in, drinks are on the house.
The Braves have built a three game lead with three games to go till the break. If they push ahead by winning two or three games, great. But even if they lose all three, oh well, we’re in first place tie with the Mets and Heyward’s coming back soon. Etc, etc.
Of course, it’s better not to lose the house money, either… but it’s less urgent.
Got it…I see your point but I really wanna win. Actually, I really wanna sweep. Wish I could watch all three games pitch by pitch but unfortunately I have to be social. I know, life is hard when your husband has 12 weeks off and you travel around seeing family and friends all summer between weeks at the beach and in the mountains. It’s rough…very rough.
