After 45 years of getting upset by the successes of the teams I hate really don’t like, I’m making a New Year’s resolution to ignore them:
“I refuse to let the success of my undeserving rivals upset me.”
From now on, I’m just concentrating on the teams I support, all from the University of Michigan. I’ll enjoy their successes, and try not to let their occasional failures upset me too much. I don’t care what my rivals do. League championships, undefeated seasons, national championships? Good for them. I don’t care about it, I don’t want to hear about it, and I don’t want to talk about it. It doesn’t concern me. Sure, it makes recruiting more challenging, but not impossible. Sure, it brings out the worst in the fans that support certain teams, but I can live with it. Just leave me alone. Good for you! Celebrate with your friends, and leave me alone. Yeah, yeah, the team you support is the best team ever in the history of the world, but I don’t care. Go away.
