View Full Version : Schadenfreude

09-30-2007, 01:56 PM
I've found that I derive more pleasure rooting against teams then for them. With the exception of the White Sox, I only want teams to win because of the displeasure it might cause their opponent.

For example:

I want the Phillies to win so the Mets will complete their huge choke.
I want all NL teams to do well so the Cubs will fail.

I hate all the AL teams and don't want any of them to win for these reasons:
Yankees: Winning too much, sick of hearing about them.
Indians: Bitterness due to division rivalry.
Angels: They play in a suburb yet try to claim the title of Los Angeles. Too Disneyish in general.
Red Sox: See Yankees.

I don't hate the Indians. I went to Jacobs Field last year and had a great time.

A Cleveland/Arizona World Series would make me pretty happy - as happy as a non-White Sox and non-Cardinals WS can make me.

Go Phillies!

I'd like it to be Cleveland and the Phillies, with the Phillies winning.

Rowand and Iguchi as the stars, of course.

That's stretching it though, with Ryan Howard hanging around. :D:
