Do you know what a winner picker is? Maybe you know a few and just don't realize it. Have you noticed a few of your friends walking around with new Eagles hats now that they won the Super Bowl but that's the first time they've ever been an Eagles fan? Maybe you had some friends suddenly rocking a Crimson Tide jersey since Alabama won another national championship, but you know they've never watched a game in their life. Those are winner pickers. People that only seem to pull for winning teams and jump on the bandwagon when times are good. I am a Bears fan so it's easy to say I am no winner picker my friend.
You know you can be somewhat a winner picker here on Active Rain. Do you find yourself only commenting on the featured posts? The fact of the matter is that the featured posts are usually the cream of the crop and it's always good to check them out, but there are only so many.
That being said there are a lot of really great posts here that may not make it into the Daily Drop or become a featured post. If you just skim over the highlights, you can miss a deal of helpful info that is available to you if you are willing to dig a little deeper. So next chance you get, visit a few groups or click on an author you've never read before. You may be surprised by what you find and it really won't be that painful either. Besides, it's not like I'm asking you to be a Bears fan or anything. And you can even keep your brand new Eagles hat.
