Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

I need more Cavs fans friends. My recent distaste for the Warriors is largely rooted in my dumbass facebook friends saying stupid shit on fb. Cavs fans are almost certainly dumber, but they don't inundate my social media the way Warriors fans do.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

My how I've swung from liking the Warriors to despising them so. To me they represent the snotty tech douche America that plays with a stacked deck and acts like they overcame something. I went to a Warriors game in 1997 or so and the crowd was sparse and mostly black guys from Oakland. I see who they draw now and the Google shuttle bus must snake through douchebagville picking these lame asses up.

My team is better and always will be.

My team won a long time ago.
Your impression of the bay area is always amusing.

I've been out there. I've spent maybe 3 month's of my life out there. I guess what I loved about the Bay when I first visited was the Bohemian atmosphere; the art, the weed, the proximity to the California countryside. The last two times I went I just felt it was suddenly full of phony and douchey little brats who, for reasons I cannot understand, were getting rich off of useless tech products that really didn't make any money. It's been a few years since I've been out there. Everyone I know moved to San Diego or Oakland.

Back in 06-12, before they got great, Warriors always had the loudest stadium in the NBA. Sure, they got a lot more bandwagon fans after becoming great, but that will happen in any city. EVEN BOSTON! Most of the die hard Warriors fans I know are like Filipino south city natives or my in laws. It's nothing special, just typical homerism. I just don't get exposure to nearly as many fans of other teams. To balance one obnoxiousness with another.
