    Quite a few things relevant to my interests in your podcast.
    Maybe this says a lot about my personality, but I love being an expat fan. It kind of gives me a thrill to walk into the Verizon Center wearing blue with most people wearing red (although at the same time, there are also a lot of people wearing blue). It’s kind of empowering being part of a sizable minority and playing the role of spoiler. But at the same time, if my team loses, then it’s not as if everyone talks about it. One of the things that killed me about growing up in WNY was when the Bills or Sabres would have a big loss, you’d see it in people’s faces for weeks. I can deal with my own sadness, but when the entire area is in a collective funk, it’s harder for me to deal with. Here I can go do something I really like and I’m more or less over it. No black clouds.
    DC Sports Fans crack me up. They’re simultaneously more fairweather than Buffalo fans (and angsty about it) while being more delusional. What blew me away was that I was in court the other day because that’s just part of what I do and I saw someone wearing an RGIII jersey. To Court. And it was a matter of hours after he had been drafted.
