I Always Root For the Underdog

    I always root for villain.

    I try to see where there coming from. Maybe there not a bad guy there just in a tight spot. If you had gone through what they have you might me screwed up to. Plus evil characters always have the best mustaches.

    I always root for the underdog

    because I know how it feels to be the underdog. When I was a child I had many things to overcome and situations to deal with by myself with no support.

    I don't ever want to sit in a room

    where we all call each other wise. I'd rather be known as "Stella"

    The underdog who is nice to everyone gets the

    crap end of the stick. Awful obnoxious human being gets praised and always comes out better.

    when those 2 prisoners escaped from the upstate

    New York prison, and they were on the loose hiding in the forest for a few days, I was rooting for them to make it to the Canadian border.

    There's nothing like watching a prideful person

    have a taste of their own medicine by the very person they didn't think could do anything.

    I grew up in Europe and

    though my parents were American, my father was never big on sports so I never learned much about American football beyond the absolute basics. When I'd watch a football game at someone's house I'd ask which was the worst team or the team likely to lose and that's who I'd root...

    Why is it the people I carefully allow into my

    circle of friends I call family .....turn out to be the complete opposite of who I thought they were. I'm tired of wasting so much of my energy on people who take it for granted.
