Cheering for the underdog.

I’ve always kind of felt sorry for the underdog.  The loser.  The one who you know won’t come out on top.  I find myself cheering for them.  Routing them on.  “Come on, you can do it!”  I don’t know why, maybe it’s because I’m sensitive or because I can easily put myself in other people’s shoes.  Yesterday I was wholeheartedly cheering for the underdog – just in a different way.

I came upon this video of a couple of college students putting on a sports cast.  Yes, I was cheering for them.  Cheering for them to keep messing up!  Yes, I know it sounds really bad.  But this video is so over-the-top funny that I couldn’t help but find happiness in their misery.  I’m sure that neither of them will ever read this.  And I’m sure that this isn’t the first or the last time this will ever be said about them.  But this video is so bad that I just kept wanting to see more. More stutters.  More stumbles.  More confusion.

Well, you’ll see what I mean when you watch it.  And just a fyi to future sports casters:  Do NOT do any of this!  Click the link, then enjoy!
