Kevin Levin: Traitor and Enemy

I am glad to see that Kevin Levin’s finally come clean and revealed that he’s a “pro-southern blogger.”

I knew it all the time.  Anyone from New Jersey, that northern slave state, can’t be relied upon, especially when they come from south Jersey.  He’s rooted for the wrong teams for years, having cheered the Phillies in 2009 … and now he’s supporting the Boston Red Sox, a sign of his ability to shift sympathies at a moment’s notice.  And, of course, he was an anti-southern blogger in the South, and now a pro-southern blogger in the North, a sure sign of his absolute contrarian sensibilities.

Readers of Crossroads know that I will always be a New Yorker and a Yankee, as well as a fan of the New York Yankees.  At least you’ll always know where I stand.  October can’t come soon enough.

I’m waiting for Kevin to jump on the bandwagon of the Boston Bruins and retroactively claim his support for the 2011 Stanley Cup champions, in part because that may spark renewed rioting in Vancouver.  That’s still one Stanley Cup less in my lifetime than the 1980-83 New York Islanders, who trounced the Bruins twice in the playoffs en route to their four-in-a-row Cup dynasty.  Next up for Kevin: a New England Patriots jersey … I’ll send him a Super Bowl 42 patch for it.

And to think that I actually count Boston as one of my favorite cities …

All this and his own action figure and trading card … grrrr.

      Yes, but guess who has his own personalized sidebar? 🙂 All about me.

      She likes me. She really, really likes me.

      And to find out that a closed Yahoo group is monitoring my posts … even better.

    Nothing wrong with rooting for the Phillies…or the Red Sox…or the Flyers…Eagles, too.

      That’s a matter of opinion 🙂 … but it’s the Grimsley-esque switching of loyalties that must be highlighted.

      Some of my best friends root for Philly-based teams. Same with Boston-based teams. Even Chicago. I have a big heart and open arms.

        You gotta cut me some slack here, Brooks. This is my first experience living in a city with a vibrant professional sports program. It’s hard not to get sucked in. C’mon…what do you say? 🙂

          Come to the light Kevin, Boston sports are winning sports.

    Hey! I resemble that remark! But at least I’ve always been a Phillies/Eagles/Flyers/Sixers fan.

      Let’s put it this way … you’ve also had to overcome being a Hokie. That is proof of my tolerance for a diverse set of perspectives.

      • Jeff Davis August 25, 2011 / 11:39 am

        ummm, what’s a hokie?

      • Al Mackey August 25, 2011 / 6:45 pm

        Others’ jealousy of us is a cross we Hokies all must bear. 🙂

          Especially as another ACC football season approaches, Al. Solarex, solarah. 😉

          No jealousy here, my metro conference brother. Glad to see someone crawl out of the pit.
