Mike in a Minute: “We” in Sports

I recently got back from two weeks in Russia at the FIFA World Cup, and all I heard from fans was “I can’t believe WE won” or “I can’t believe we got screwed by the refs,” etc.

Well, that’s one of only three times I think it’s OK to use “we” when talking about your favorite sports team.

Did I miss any? Let me know.

Mike in a Minute: MLB FoodFest

I went to the first-annual MLB FoodFest┬áthis weekend, and tried as many different ballpark foods as I could in 2 hours. Every dish got a one-word review. Mostly because that’s all I had time for between bites.

Looking back, my favorites were:

  1. Arizona Diamondbacks: Churro Dog
  2. Texas Rangers: Buffalo fried chicken glazed donut sandwich
  3. Houston Astros: Fried chicken and mashed potato waffle cone

VERY mad they ran out of Florida Marlins bacon-wrapped plantains. Now I’ve gotta go back next year.
