Sensitive Rockies Fan

So this "Rockies Fan" comes into my office.  He's from Denver and I guess technically a Rockies Fan but really doesn't know anything about baseball.  He'll check the scores occasionally and try and talk with me.

So on Monday he comes into my office and I really just don't want to talk to him.  Not because he's a Rockies fan, I just don't want to talk to him.  I told him "Don't talk to me, you're the enemy today!" Good excuse, right?

He tries to say something but I just kept telling him he was the enemy.  He left.

Today he walks into my office and hands me some TPS reports.  He asked if he could address "the elephant in the room".  "Are we friends again?"

I look at him in disbelief.  Why are you such a little b*tch?  Was this guy walking around the whole beginning of the week with his feelings hurt?  Ugh.

So it's pretty obvious I don't want to talk about the game, but he starts talking about how it was "a good game".  Now I'm just agreeing with him to get him to leave.  "Okay, blah blah, good game".

"Who knows maybe you guys could have won if it wasn't for Clark Brady."

"Yeah, I hate Clark Brady.  Good game guy.  Talk to you later, gotta get back to work."  I hate talking about sports and feelings with people.
