    Not my smartest move...

    I was coming home from an errand, listening to the Tigers/Yankees game on the radio, and I was hungry. I had to pass one of my favorite pizza places, which, while excellent, is also the pizzaria version of the Soup Nazi, from Seinfeld, if you catch my meaning. You don't order pineapple on your pizza here.

    So I'm standing there ordering, and I say to the guy in idle conversation, "Can you believe it! The Tigers just beat the Yankees! I'm so happy -- I can't STAND the Yankees!"

    He gives me a dirty look, just as I realize where I am...you guessed it... I'm standing in Bronx Pizza.

    D'oh!

    I'm an Indians fan, wifey and I just spent the evening with a couple who are hard core Red Sox fans.

    We hoisted a few...I must say.

    DG: Been there! As my tag line suggests (How do I know what I think until I hear what I say?), I often tend to open my mouth long before thinking. In these situations you might want to say something like, "I'm sorry. I forgot my medications this morning. I really do like the Yankees."
    A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking. - S. Wright

    I thought you had a different training regime that did not involve 100 yard sprints in 10 seconds- followed by a marathon in 2 hours.

    Where I live it is either Mets, or the other team.
    There is no love lost for the fans of the other team. Losers.

    Plus, the Jeep King of the Mountain Championship race was on CBS yesterday, so there was an alternative to round-ball stuff.
