Re: Rooting for the front runner...
I'm sick of the underdog. Always so plucky, always scrapping to win ugly. The overdog doesn't get nearly enough credit. You know, the players who are phenomenal at the game they play.
The occasional major upset is fine, but I'm pro excellence. Also, in major pro sports the whole concept of underdog is a bit fuzzy. Generally you get two fairly good teams in a championship series or contest.
