When it comes to sports, or politics, most of us have a rooting interest, and when we don't, we look for one.
That's why I'm struggling with Saturday's Alabama-Texas A&M game.
I can't pull for a team that features Johnny Manziel. I don't mind the theatrics. But the guy is put upon. He appears to love attention but takes classes online to avoid getting it. Maybe he's spoiled. Maybe when he came of age his dad said, "If you act up one more time, Johnny, we're going to take away your Porsche and make you drive a Mercedes."
So do I pull for Alabama?
I've met Nick Saban.
I know it's impossible for a college game to end in a tie. But sports are where the impossible occurs, right?
