Deadspin had a piece about this and I thought I was the only one who felt the same way.
You can’t claim to be a Vikings family when members of the family abandon the Vikings. OK, so your son marries an Eagles fan. That’s fine. But just because you live in Cincinnati, doesn’t mean that you don’t teach your children to love the Vikings or the Eagles. Instead you let them just roam around and love whatever team is out there?
Then the other sister is a Vikings fan, yet converts to the Cowboys just because of one selfie with Emmitt Smith? Like, does this family have no loyalty? You can’t claim to be a Vikings family if you flop so bad.
If you haven’t caught wind of it, last night gave us a major glimpse of how bad these Heat “fans” are. Their team is down five with less than a minute to go. If you’ve watched the NBA at any point in time in your life, you know that a deficit like that can be overcome. Especially with a team that talented like the Heat, you can’t just assume that the game is over.
But apparently these Heat fans thought so. The mass exodus of the arena is pretty embarrassing. What’s even worse is that when they found out the game went into overtime, they all tried to get back into the arena. The “No Re-Entry” policy was in effect and nobody was allowed to get back in.
I’ve always made fun of the Heat bandwagon fans and now the local and national media have joined me. This is embarrassing and it surprises me why anyone who paid good money to see a game would leave the game early. It wasn’t like a double-digit blowout. But of course, these are the things only basketball fans would know.
Despite struggling with three-pointers, Stephen Curry came up clutch late in the game.
If you didn’t watch the Warriors beat the Thunder last night, you missed out on a fantastic game. To be more exact, you missed out on a win that could change the entire direction of the team’s magical season.
After over a decade of futility with one playoff appearance, the Warriors now appear to have established themselves as serious contenders to win the Pacific Division. More importantly, they’ve done it in convincing fashion.
Coming into last night, the Warriors have defeated the Clippers three times this year and also have a road win in Miami. I don’t know if people were calling the Warriors flukes up to this point, but beating the Thunder was their biggest win of the year. Defeating the team with the best record and the defending West champions goes a long way in the team’s identity.
