Sports Team Triumphs

Today, the sports team that is owned by a multi-millionaire who happens to reside in the geographical region where I grew up triumphed over another sports team that is owned by a different multi-millionaire from a different geographical region. The sports team that happens to be logistically situated in my hometown, a place where I no longer live and to which I only ascribe the most simple, nostalgic loyalty, is a fine examplar of the very virtues from that town. The other sports team, on the other hand, are nefarious bastards that are not to be trusted due to their criminal habits, unsportsmanlike play, and general aura of pervasive badness because they are from a state wholly dissimilar to my own home state in both culture and climate.

The game itself was an upset - the other, nefarious team was highly favored despite a late-season meltdown. But the rivalry between both teams (and hence the cities for whom they play, even though all members of both teams are highly compensated and generally do not originate from their respective towns) is long and bitter. It was the sort of triumph that indicates that the sports team owned by the man in my town of origin is true to the virtues prized by my town, and that their triumph over the more high-flying, fancy team proves that the simple, humble virtues of hard work, heart, loyalty and determination are eventually invincible. What is more, the team that is owned by the multi-millionaire who happens to base his sports corporation in my home town where I no longer dwell now advances to the playoffs, and has a shot at the championship as a result of their victory. They will have to play many teams owned by multi-millionaires from other cities, but none so hated and reviled as this most-recently-defeated team, and therefore any victory after this one is simply a "bonus".

Thus, I bask in borrowed glory! The team that is owned by the multi-millionaire who happens to base his sports corporation in my home town where I no longer dwell has won! Hooray for he team that is owned by the multi-millionaire who happens to base his sports corporation in my home town where I no longer dwell! Boo to the sports team from another state with a dissimilar climate and culture that is an examplar of many flaws, the greatest of which is pride! Pride goeth before the fall!

(Yay Eagles! Boo Dallas!)

Congratulations on sticking it to the team owned by a multi-millionaire who has no regard for one's moral character when signing players to represent him and his city. And congratulations on having so many other dominoes fall in place to allow the team owned by a different multi-millionaire which happens to represent the city from which you hailed to advance to the playoffs. A most fortuitous end, my friend!

Though a team owned by a multi-billionaire who represents a city in the greater Northwest was so decimated by injuries to the offensive line and receiving corps as to render this season a complete and total failure, I am hopeful the higher than expected draft picks in the coming off-season will signal the beginning of bigger and better things in the near future and return said team to playoff glory!
