For example, California fajitas are SOOOOO much better than the ones in Texas. His favorite hockey team is unbeaten. Basically, he has this affinity that everything is sooooo much better than in Texas. So? I am cheering on a team I love. I never say anything rude or offensive when I cheer on my teams. He always cheers the opposite team and puts it in my face when my team loses.
Rather than engage in that less than appealing conversation, this time, I was just nice about it. As far as his favorite team being unbeaten - congrats, but just a matter of time when someone gets hurt and they lose. Going unbeaten in an entire season is rare, but should it happen, congrats.
I would rather engage in discussion regarding how the games are being played and how well certain players are doing. I do not like "Mine is better than yours!" type of crap.
I apologize, but that whole thing got under my skin. I figured if I got it written out, then it would be out of my system. :-)
