Chicago Brings Home The Cup… And I Really Want My Friend To Shut Up Now
Okay, don't get me wrong. While I might not like the Black Hawks, they deserve some props... I mean, they won the freaking Stanley Cup. But hear me out; My friend, let's call him Seymour Butts, is being super jerky about the whole thing and I kind of want to punch him in the throat.
So, some backstory before you decide I'm reacting a tad harshly. Seymour was born and bred in Chicago, but I don't hold it against him because he came to MSU for college and he's one of the truest Spartans you might ever know! So we get along pretty well, except when it comes to our hometown major league sports teams: Detroit vs. Chicago. He roots for the Blackhawks in this situation, while I'm obviously cheering for my Wings. And sometimes this leads to some embattled arguments. Example: Seymour once said, "The Lions are so f***ing terrible, they can't even win a game without Megatron," when Detroit fell to Chicago one game. Then the very next time they played, Chicago lost when they were down two men. Practically same situation, am I right? Yet time and time again,even though Detroit has proven to be a formidable foe, Seymour constantly berates me about how crappy our teams are and how much better his are. It's too true that Detroit teams have had some ups and downs in the recent past, but that doesn't mean we roll over and die. I mean, Pete's sake, our teams consist of Lions, Tigers, Pistons, and Red Wings... and we bite back.
So, when Seymour posts crap like this on Facebook, it's just crazy annoying. And therefore, I want to punch him in the throat. Chicago, the new Hockeytown? Puh-leaze. Get on our level. When the Blackhawks win 11 Stanley Cups AND make it to the playoffs 24 seasons in a row, then they can talk. What do you think? Am I being a bit harsh, or is this guy kind of a jerk?
