Anyone who knows me knows how much I love sports! Especially this time of year. If I'm hanging out with friends on a Sunday, I'm very easy to spot. That's me over there -- with all the guys, in the den, screaming at the television! Except, I don't have anyone to cheer for again this weekend.
It sure is lonely being a Chicago sports fan. I grew up in Chicago and trust me -- Chicagoans take their sports very seriously. It's practically another religion in that town. But, we haven't had a Super Bowl winning team since 1985. The Chicago Bulls haven’t won an NBA Championship since Michael Jordan’s 2nd retirement. And, don’t even get me started on the Cubs. Those "Loveable Lovers" have been breaking hearts for the past 103 years!
Being in Dallas, I had high hopes of cheering for a postseason football team. No dice. Heck ... the Dallas Cowboys aren't even considered America’s team anymore. Green Bay Packers have allegedly taken over that illustrious distinction and in good conscience, I can't cheer for them either (arch rivalry with the Chicago Bears spanning almost 100 years.)
So, what's a girl to do? I guess I can always pick the team with the cutest quarterback or the prettiest uniforms. After all, I am still a girl.
