the broncos went down big last night. i've tried to support them as much as possible from here. if their game was televised nationally, i was watching (like lastnight...thank you nbc). the rest of the time, i was huddled in my apartment around my computer listening to the game by going to the websites of 850 koa in denver or 740 kvor in colorado springs and getting their audio streaming of the game. sometimes i'd have some other game on tv just to get a visual. that could be confusing right there. admittedly, though, support has been difficult, with the distance and all their injuries...poor blighters. and then last night...mm...losing by 31 points like that. just wait til next year!! i know they'll be back!
so i'm at this strange place of needing a team i can actually follow and watch and keep up with. since this is how many americans determine how they are doing, whether they're a "winner" or not for their monday, etc. the problem is, of course, this area has lots of teams to choose from. what i'm needing is some help in this choice.
i live on the upper west side of manhattan, across the street from central park, just off the b and c line. am i supposed to like the jets or the giants? i like favre since he's old like me and it's great to see him hand some youngin his lunch (although...hasn't happened as much as would be nice, i guess, for jets fans). but i'm wondering if there's some kind of "line" through this city that determines allegiances, at least loosely.
secondly, baseball season is just around the corner. when spring training ends, i've got to have some sense of who to root for. am i supposed to be a mets or yankees fan? i just don't get it.
so, if anyone has some helpful advice for me on who to choose and why, i'm listening. it's all in the name of being a good and decent new yorker for whatever time i'm here. so leave me a comment and share your logic!
until next year...go team. go team go!
