Just Sayin!!!

It has been brought to my attention that I am a genius. You may think me vain for saying this, but hear me out. As most of you know, I am not really a Vikings fan. I don't dislike them, as the only two football teams I harbor dislike for are The Patriots and The Ravens. I consider myself a Steelers fan but that is only because I picked them as my team at the beginning of the 2005 season because after the boat scandal, I could no longer pretend to cheer for the Vikings. I would not normally switch my loyalties so easily but I felt the Vikes had no class and decided to cut ties before anyone (else) got hurt. This being said, I made an educated decision. I chose based on the QB of the team. I first chose Joey Harrington (based on looks) and then found out he was not a very good QB. I then picked Big Ben(not based on looks) and stuck with him. That year if you remember correctly....The Steelers won the Super Bowl. They have been "my team" ever since.
Now, back to me being a genius. If you know me at all, you know that I am a baseball fan. You know that in the summer, I am pretty much impossible to get ahold of unless you're a.) A Boy of Summer B.) A FSN announcer or C.) A season ticket holder. I'm sorry but I am pretty pathetic from February to October. This being said, I have had a quote attached to all of my work e-mails for the last six months or so. I changed it to stir up controversy with my coworkers that believe football to be a superior sport to my beloved baseball. I never knew the implications.
You see, it was brought to my attention that when the Vikes were playing the Saints on Jan. 24th. there was one point during the game that my face flashed through a few people's minds. Please read my quote and you will understand why a few of my coworkers now think I am so smart and also find me incredibly annoying!

"Baseball players are smarter than football players. How often do you see a baseball team penalized for having too many players on the field?"
