I'd say most of those are spot on. I used to think it was fun to bring up the Chief Wahoo issue with my friends who are Indians fans. They would get so fired up, repeating the "honoring Louis Sockalexis" myth. But then we had a few incidents where drunk people we didn't know well chimed in with some really off-the-wall stuff, took the whole thing way too personal, and it made everyone uncomfortable. So now when the topic comes up, my friends just say, "yeah, the team is trying to get away from that. I prefer the C logo anyway." I wouldn't bring the issue up with Indians fans face to face, particularly drunk ones you don't know. It's one of those topics, like politics and religion, where it may be difficult to keep the conversation civil.
Wear gaudy colors, or avoid display. Lay a million eggs or give birth to one. The fittest shall survive, yet the unfit may live. Be like your ancestors or be different. We must repeat!

I'll hear TV commercials where the music's ripping off sounds of mine, to the point I think it's me. Half the time, it's the Black Keys," White says. "The other half, it's a sound-alike song because they couldn't license one of mine. There's a whole world that's totally fine with the watered-down version of the original."
And yes he's a very good guitarist
Waitaminute...this guy's famous?!
I thought he was just some random Chicagoland schmuck who hated his existence when he realized he was actually a Cubs fan.

Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser....Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed...the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.
