"Nice pick Ford," bellows from the stands as I'm walking the sidelines on a Friday evening.

As I'm walking through the crowd on my way out of one game on my way to another I hear grumblings from the crowd, "Who in their right mind would pick them to beat us."

The next day while at the checkout counter of a local grocery store the cashier calls me a "traitor" for picking against the hometown team.
