I went to Tennessee and witnessed
Peyton Manning play
For the Volunteers. He steered the offense magnificently. They won the game. Fans went insane. I asked why they go insane. It’s just a game. “Pride, bro,” someone said.
Yeah, when they win, we win, said a girl next to him. It has no direct impact on our lives. But still. It’s a mild thrill.
But where does it emanate from? I asked
Are you playing dumb? She asked.
Yeah. I am.
But, no I’m not, is what I thought.
So I’m either actually dumb or smart.
Sometimes you can be so smart that you’re actually dumb
Or you can be so dumb that you’re actually smart
No, you cant, she said
Oh shit, did I say that out loud?
Yeah you did
