One-Way Romance

The biggest lie in all sports is that professional players and management love their fans. They love fan support, of course. The fans' money and cheers to be specific. I can understand fan affection for a particular athlete, or performer in any public line of work, but only as appreciation for the skill and beauty of the ability being displayed. Period. And just because a fan dotes on that peformance doesn't mean the athlete somehow knows and dotes on the fan. Such a leap of faith is more ridiculous than expecting a politician to really love kissing babies.

But even more ridiculous is fan devotion to a team. A TEAM! What are we talking about here? Owners and management who buy and trade players who shop and sell themselves to the highest bidder?

I guess I have only one piece of advice to offer sport fans--Get A Life!
