Being from Philadelphia, having gone to school in Pittsburgh, and currently residing in the Nation’s Capital, it never dawned on me that I could possibly be in Miami Heat Country. But, according to my Twitter and Facebook feeds that seems to be the case. And they all seem to have to defend the fact that they’ve been die hard Heat fans for years, like since back in the Tim Hardaway and Alonzo Mourning days. And all that whining and moaning seems to really pick up around finals time each year.
Fact is, about 99.5 percent of those individuals have been Miami Heat fans since the Ray Allen and Chris “Birdman” Anderson days. There’s even this completely official chart to prove my point.
As if that wasn’t enough, Jimmy Kimmel did probably the most appropriate segment of Lie Witness News ever this week.
