I never realized how dificult it would be to come up with seven pet peeves. I am starting to run out of ideas. There are some pet peeves that I do have that I am really silent about though because I don't want to offend people. So I really hope that I will be able to keep my commitment to give you the reading public seven consecutive days on my rants.
Todays pet peeve is one that I can totally understand. Really I do, but that does not change the fact that my hands turn to fists every time this happens. As many of you know I am an Angels fan, I have been one as long as I can remember. We have had season tickets for the longest time and I just love going to the games. As a matter of fact my first date with my wife was to an Angels game, although she had no idea that it was a date at that time.
What I hate is when you are at a game and the other team hits a homerun or scores or does something really good for them, and the fans in the stands go crazy rooting for the oposing team. Let me tell you I totally understand and would do the same thing if I were at a game the Angels were playing in at another stadium. I would love to walk in the Yankee Stadium wearing my Angels gear and cheering for all the great plays made by my team. This does not change the fact that it hurts and makes me so mad when people come into my house and disrespect me by cheering for the other team. I mean this is my house and I would hate to have someone come into my house disrespecting my family. This is the way I feel even though I would totally never hesitate to go into someone elses house and disrespect their families (aka the Yankee or Red Sox).
And for your information the Yankees and the Red Sox fans are the worst when it comes to this. Sometimes at the baseball games I think to myself or even out loud, "If they love these teams so much then why don't they move to where they play"? That's what the Brooklyn Dodgers fans did in the 50's. When the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles so did many of their fans for that reason.
Oh well I for one will always be an Angels fan.
