It just means that I treat him for what he is: a player on a team I root for, a guy who makes me happy and disappoints me only on a completely superficial level. In this way, our bond is unbreakable. The Web has helped shrink athletes down to our level. The 30 GOD SAVE THE FAN days of Red Smith weaving tales of brilliance and assigning godlike qualities to the players are over. Athletes really are just like us, and they’re entirely not like us. By bringing them closer, they are pushed farther from us.

Damn you know the funny thing is that mother fuckers like yall wont have the balls and say it to my face . . when i make it to the league i willshoot a middle finger at yall and say 48 GOD SAVE THE FAN fuck all my haters . . i am the realest, and my name is Lucious Seymour get it right!! I wrote him back and told him I was from Mattoon, and that we should be friends. I did not hear back.

The modern athlete has zero connection to any of our lives whatsoever, and if you met any one of them in real life, and you got to know him, and he got to know you . . you probably would not be able to stand each other. No matter how much Jim Edmonds might mean to me as a Cardinals fan, no matter how many times I’ve screamed his name while leaping into the air, if I knew the guy on a personal level, I’m rather certain we wouldn’t be able to find a single common reference point.
