It has been brewing for years, you know when you just get the ‘vibe’, as they say? Of course there were emails, slanderous emails, and plenty of ‘he said/she said’ Chinese whisper like 'hear-say', and the ‘vibe’, added to everything else, leads me to believe the guy actually kind of dislikes me.
Always disappointing, naturally. In this case I did find myself wondering, why? Whilst occasionally a bit of a clown, I do try to be relatively nice to people, particularly people I consider friends. So, the question remained, why?
Well, as of today, thanks to a calculator, I think I have the answer.
That answer is numeric.
360 - 218
Or, to be it in better context.
New England - 360
New York - 218
See, the lad in question, he's a pretty big Jets fan. Allah be praised, it is all clear to me now. Everything makes sense. I can see clearly now, the rain has gone. I added up the scores from the Patriots v Jets scores since 2001 and I got my answer. Really, no wonder the kid hates me. 360-218! That's severe domination. That's Ali over everybody like domination. That's Manchester United over the Premier League like domination. That's USC over the NCAA the last few years domination.
I'll buy the guy a beer next time I see him, see if I can make up for seven years of the Patriots absolutely dismantling his favourite team.
360 - 218.
