The Big Game
It was a light drizzle, so I eschewed my daily walk from the office to the subway in favor of the #22 bus to Chambers St. I was seated across from a man whose black and yellow Pittsburgh Steelers jacket was handsomely accessorized by his black and yellow Steelers backpack. Both were on prominent display. Onto the bus climbs one of his co-workers and they begin (loudly) discussing a variety of topics, including the Super Bowl. She asked him for whom he was rooting and he replies that, well, his team isn't in it, but he's pulling for the Giants. So, she asks the obvious question, "Oh, who is your team?" The jaw drops.
