As some of you long-time readers know, I teach theater and English at a junior high school in Southern California. I was delighted to discover last fall that there were several kids in Giants caps wandering our halls. Sure, some of them were bandwagon-ers, but it's junior high! Why not start a beautiful love relationship with our favorite baseball team?
But what I overheard before the start of rehearsal yesterday made me glow inside:
Giants Fan Kid: Dude, we're going all the way this year, we're gonna win the World Series AGAIN, baby! Best record in spring training right now, just like last year!
Local Yokel/"Dodgers Fan" Kid: No way, the Dodgers are gonna come back and kill the Giants this year!
Giants Fan Kid: *pauses, looks Dodgers fan straight in the eye, and says (after the jump).....*
"You can't argue with a World Champion."
Completely made my day.
