!confused (wembley), !muppets (wembley), wembley

(no subject)

I was raised on their basketball! I had tickets to every home game! My parents--" "OKAY OKAY I GET IT") and then went to Pitt for undergrad. So this is a matchup that she has been dying to see for many years, and this is the first time it's ever happened. (She says it goes beyond team loyalties: "It's their techniques. They throw more elbows than anybody. 3/4 of the players will foul out. It'll be a great game." Me: "...")

M: But--
H: Whoever's losing.
M: I--
H: Shut up.
M: But you do know that if you do it that way, the team you're rooting for is sure to l--
H: SHUT UP.

I don't think I get sports?
