I almost died the other day, when my brother said something that made me lose faith in his loyalty to the Lakers. My dad wound up with Clippers tickets for the Christmas day game, instead of Lakers tickets like he usually does, and so a few of the boys were all going. I opted out, because I won’t be caught dead at Clippers game, unless the Lakers are playing the Clippers. I went once, but only because my friend was playing in the final rounds of a dodgeball tournament right after the Clippers game. I mean, it’s one thing to go just because there are tickets available, but when I jokingly called my brother a traitor, and he responded with, “What, I’m an L.A. fan,” like a generic L.A. fan, I thought oh dear Lord. You can't do that. Well, I can't anyways. I’m really devoted to my teams.
L.A. has two teams in several sports. You’ve got the Lakers and the Clippers, the Dodgers and the Angels, and the Kings and the Ducks. Although, the Angels and the Ducks technically count as the O.C., but whatever—close enough. I was raised a Lakers fan, a Dodgers fan, and Kings fan, and I stay very loyal to my teams. I don’t root for all L.A. teams, just so when one team is not doing so hot, hopefully the other one is. No, I think that’s bullocks. I think you pick your team and you support them win or lose. It really annoys me right now that some people are straddling both ships, just because the Clippers are doing well; and well, the Lakers are not having the greatest season. If you’ve always been a Clippers fan, then great. I’m happy for you that your team is doing well. For me though, going to a Clippers game would be like shopping knock-offs in the Valley—it just won’t happen.
BIG LOVE & HUGS
