I'm from Upper Michigan, but now live just outside Minneapolis (Plymouth, to be specific). I'm a fan of sports, books, movies, humor of all descriptions, and the serial comma. I am not a fan of people being angry, using cell phones while driving, attempting to be persuasive about politics or religion, or any combination thereof.
I will respect your right to root for whatever team you like, logical or not, as long as you respect my right to root for Detroit's Red Wings, Tigers, Lions, and Pistons and the US national soccer team. (This basic reasoning also applies to your political and religious affiliations.)
