Just a thought, but perhaps it has to do with your actions toward the end of the game. :?

Because he's a lost cause. We still think you can be saved.

(never mind that some of my geekery crosses over more into areas of his interest... like Macs and Star Wars among other things).

I'd hasten to say she's a MUCH more lost cause when it comes to her teams than I am (if for no other reason than she has half a dozen teams in all the major and minor sports that she obsesses over, I've only got the Braves).

Yet, neither one of you has written a story for this sports challenge. And after all aren't we a WRITING website? Now get writing you two. :director:

It's not half a dozen teams. it's FOUR (Mets, Rangers, Giants and UConn basketball). And I'm not even that huge of a UConn fan like I used to be. And I only obsess over hockey and baseball. I just enjoy the other two.

And I'm not the one who geeks out over statistics. I barely even look at statistics!

I believe there's a minor league hockey team that's not the Rangers that you've been known to be a fan of.

I follow them because they're the rangers affiliate, charles, and now that i moved to Jersey I don't follow them at all except when Steve (a guy who sat in my row) calls me.
