Does "Bragging Rights" Mean Anything To You?

    Over rivals weekend it seemed like countless announcers talked about
    bragging rights. Just never meant a lot to me. What say you?

    It's disappointing, but if the biggest problem is whether my team won a game then I must lead a charmed life. This weekend, I was definitely more stressed and frustrated over working retail on Black Friday than a football game.

    Life goes on, I still have to go to work, I still have bills to pay.

    It's fun to vent a lot of hatred over a meaningless football game for four hours a year. Somewhat cleansing.

    I don't know.

    Just saw some fluff piece from Wojo on ESPNU (during Cowherd's show) talking about Alabama-Auburn and that it was more important than life itself.

    All it really did was make the fans of the state of Alabama look like a bunch of idiots with no perspective.

    Bragging rights meant more to me in college. Didn't get to do it a lot because my teams constantly lost in big games. My favorite call came in the summer of 2002. Sox lost to the Yankees 20-2 or something like that the night before; I got home from work and my mom said "Your friend Sal called. He wanted me to tell you 1918."
    Now it's fun when a Boston teams beats a team from New York in a big game so I can text my college buddy something (He does the same when a NY teams beats a Boston one), but it doesn't make or break my life.
