We’ve always drawn allegiances. Tribes, clans, empires, kingdoms, states, nations. We’re always describing ourselves by where we live. This thing we have with choosing teams…weird, right? That’d be fine if we were all just playing ultimate frisbee. But, teams become less appealing when the weapons come out. It’s one thing when you’ve got 32 yards to first down, it’s another when you have to shoot the prisoners.
Look, I’m all about working with your neighbors, I’m just not sure how I feel about hating the people on the other side of the tracks.
