With the World Cup in the news and of great interest to people close to me, I can’t help but get involved… but I am a terrible fan. If I really like a team, I can’t bear to watch an important game because the tension is too much. I’d rather hide under the bed. If I am rooting for a team for fun and they start doing well, I invariably begin feeling sorry for the other team. They are trying so hard. Yes, a terrible fan.
But I do love baseball (and am fond of hockey). Can I watch the Cubs play? Take me to Wrigley Field and yes, I can. On TV? I’d rather hide under the bed.
May I now present a few of my favourite cartoons, only the first of which is related to todays prompt, “fans”?
I love Wimbledon too; it’s a perfect summer tournament.
