It’s funny. I mean funny as in strange, not as in ha-ha. It’s funny that some things are important to us and others aren’t. I guess that’s not funny, because obviously we’re going to prioritize some things over other things, but which things, that’s what’s funny.
I don’t care much about American football. I enjoyed playing it as a kid, went to all the games in High School, but haven’t watched it in years and never had a favorite pro team. It doesn’t affect my life at all. Nonetheless, although I’ve never had a favorite sports team, there have been a few I’ve disliked intensely. Dallas Cowboys. L.A. Lakers. And, most recently, the Patriots. It’s not too hard to figure out the pattern. When a team starts winning too often, I want to see them knocked down a peg. The lobster brain is kicking in.
So, congratulations to Philadelphia and the Eagles. What’s up with your moron fans, though? You need to get that shit under control.
On the other hand, even though it may be an omen of bad times to come for the world economy, I find myself not caring at all that the Dow dropped over 1,000 points today. To be honest, I have very little idea of how big a drop 1,000 points is. I mean, is that like 6 points in American football, or like 36?
Doesn’t matter. I don’t have any money in the stock market, haven’t since 2008, and so I don’t care. Other people lost money, and almost all of them are wealthier people than me, so they can deal with it.
That’s how it works, isn’t it?
