Also, I like ariedana's theory that Mark Cuban ruined his karma when he went on Letterman and made fun of my basketball boyfriend Steve Nash.
James, who is not really a sports fan, has been a real trooper about the three-month march through the playoffs, but I think it's starting to make him goofy. Sunday night he decided that since I'd decided to pull for the Heat, he was going to be for the Mavs just to annoy me. His stated reason was that "they wear blue jerseys." This led to him randomly yelling "Go blue team!" during the game and "Stupid red team!" afterwards. Apparently the similarity to PVP shootouts contained in those statements amused him.
