Who Does a Baylor Grad From Dallas Root For?

By Bradford Pearson |

At Cliff Fest this weekend, I overheard some variation of this conversation:

“Ugh, I love RGIII, but I hate the Redskins.”
“Who are you going to root for on Thanksgiving?”
“The Cowboys, of course, but I hope RGIII has a good game, too.”

I have that dilemma every week with my fantasy team(s). I want the Jets to win Thursday, but I also hope they let Brandon Lloyd walk a few touchdowns in. Fandom is a slippery slope that eventually ends with me, hopeless and teamless, wandering around a fantasy football convention talking about the stupidity of non-PPR leagues.
