You know, since I've been dating Ish, I've started paying a little more attention to sports than before.
(Before = Sports? Um...Barry Bonds is in San Francisco, right?)
Most of my life I've sort of just followed along a little, mostly at the time of major tournaments.
(Major tournaments = World Series, Superbowl, um, Olympic figure skating)
But seriously. This year I've actually been watching. And enjoying. And being somewhat knowledgeable! Well, at least waaaay more than ever before.
Like, I watched the Boise State v. Oklahoma bowl game, and even if I just had to ask Ish what teams those were again, it was still pretty amazing to have witnessed it. Just like Stanford's basketball team has been fun to follow lately, too. You know?
Anyway, my point is, I've watching football all season. Seriously. Which is why it's especially embarrassing (mortifying, really) to have just run into my neighbor only to engage in the following exhange:
Neighbor, David: Hey, you guys watching the game today?
Me: Yeah. We're going to a friend's place.
David: Cool, us to. I'm rooting for Indy. How 'bout you guys?
Me: I think I'd like the Cubs to win.
David immediately and dismissively looks to Ish, standing behind me. At the very moment he asks Ish who he'd like to win, I hear Ish mumble, "It's the Bears, Kiki, not the Cubs."
I totally knew that.
