So, tell me again. Who's Alex Rodriguez?
Yeah, if you haven't guessed, I'm not much of a sports (follower). Oh, I hear (and retain), enough to know which end of the golf club to hang onto, but that's about it.
I liked PLAYING sports, and enjoy watching an 'occassional' high-school game, but never was drawn to the commercialized, major teams.
I learned years ago how to remind my co-workers of my 'non-sports mindedness' (an affliction, by their beliefs).
Somebody would invariably come into the room, all excited, and ask, "So, who's gonna win the Super Bowl?"
And I'd reply, "Well, the Brewers LOOK good, but I'm bettin' on the 76'ers".
I'd be met with this dumbfounded look, and a "Wha...? HUH??".
Then, they'd say, "Oh, that's right - you don't follow sports. I forgot."
It worked quite well through the years.
