I think I've said before, but although my favorite sport is easily baseball and I'm an Angels collector for sure, my favorite sports team is the Dallas Cowboys. Have been for over thirty years.
The Cowboys' rivalry with the Washington Redskins is something akin to Dodgers/Giants or Yankees/Red Sox in baseball. So when a Redskins fan contacts a Cowboys fan, the Cowboys fan is understandably suspicious. On the other hand, the idea of moving some of those yellow and maroon clad thugs has its appeal.
Greg, who I've traded with before, showed some interest in some Redskins, so I packaged them off. He sent back a stack of my needs from 2014 Topps series 1 baseball. And he also sent a nice stack of my beloved Cowboys. [edit: Greg has a blog, maybe he'll start posting on it.]
And sure enough they arrived the same night the Cowboys were losing to the Redskins on Monday Night Football.
And the Cowboys lost their quarterback too. And their next game without said quarterback.
There's really only one conclusion. The Cowboys are losing because I traded with the enemy. I thought I could trust him. Now there's trouble in Big D. That's what I get.....
