I Don’t Care If The Bills Win


The Buffalo Bills won today and it made a lot of people around here happy. Good – I’m glad. I like to see people happy as long as they don’t hurt anyone or involve me.  Buffalo is my closest National Football League team so according to a lot of nits, I should root for them.

Why?

This is one of those unquestioned rules that a majority of the people accept without question.  There are a few “traitors” but if you live anywhere near a sports team, you’d better cheer for that team to win. People really care about this stuff.

Actually I’m a fan of whichever team wins my bets.  I make about 5 or 6 small bets per week and win more than I lose.  The bets are just large enough for me to keep the game on in the background of my Sunday.  The odds are determined in Las Vegas so I bet with the favorites no matter which teams they choose.

I can’t imagine why I would care about any sporting event unless I had a personal stake in it.  So if you ever see me in a Buffalo Bills coat, you’ll know I lost all my money in bets and someone gave me the jacket out of spite.

    We are genetically programmed to make sure our genes continue on after our death. That’s why we irrationally support siblings and other relatives who don’t deserve it in the least. This programming carries over into our social lives, so we are prejudiced in favor of our race, religion, ethnic group, nation, city, school, team etc. You have to make an effort to not root for the home team. Of course it’s all pretty silly in the larger scheme of things. I cheer for the Giants because I went to high school with the head coach, and I don’t even know the guy. How stupid is that?

    We are a step up from the chimps. A very small step.
