Eh, I've thought about the earlier rant a bit. I can see how the big red dude would think I was a bandwagoner...I haven't exactly been a huge contributor in this thread. And when I have contributed, it hasn't been much. I can see it. Another thing to add to my case, my fiancee and I have been together 4.5 years (off and on 10) and she was a huge Cubs fan before we started dating seriously. I told her that if she didn't preferably become a Cardinals fan, but at least ditch the Cubs, then we would for sure, have relationship problems. So she ditched the Cubs and is hardcore Cardinals now. I made her throw away her Cubs apparel....at first she was pissed about it, but now when she looks back, shes glad she did it because she hates the Cubs and has noticed the same idiocy in their fanbase that I have now that it has been pointed out to her and she is able to observe it from the opposing side. She is embarrassed to have rooted for the Cubs, even though it was to a pretty minimal/moderate extent. She likes the Cards more than she's ever liked the Cubs.
Anyways, I usually engage in my Cardinals talk with my friends, fiancee and dad. I don't really have the "Cardinals talk" void that needs to be filled, for there are plenty of knowledgeable fans to converse with about the Cardinals where I am from (Southeast Iowa where Cards fans and Cubs fans are split 50/50). However, my Chiefs-chat void is never filled, for there isn't very many Chiefs fans to converse with over here....mostly Bears, Packers, Vikings, Steelers, Cowboys fans. And to make things worse, the few Chiefs fans there are around my area are total dumbshits. Most don't see a problem with Cassel and stare at me with a blank face when I go on anti-Cassel tirades. They seem to not even know who Pioli is. So yeah....there is definitely a Chiefs-chat void in my life. Problem is, this place to me is like a soap opera to my mother. I get drawn into all this shit and mostly lurk to the point where it takes up way too much of my time.
ANYWAYS....shouldn't have neg-repped you or snapped. I can understand how I can be perceived as a bandwagoner on this thread....I'm just seriously one of the last people in the world that anyone who knows me can imagine being referred to as a bandwagoner....so it threw me off guard to say the least.
Positive rep (repiprocaton).
