“Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.”
Nice words, but sometimes hope is really dumb. Like when, rather than have a pure hope or faith in a noble concept like freedom or justice like Andy did in “Shawshank,” you give yourself a permanent reminder of your misguided hope in a sports team winning a tournament that, with some mild weighting aside, is inherently random.
Then, if you’re that guy, you get to go through life with this thing. A tattoo that is not only racist and disgusting, but one which is factually inaccurate and which reminds you of failures which you no doubt consider personal due to your over-identification with a baseball team.
Enjoy it, though!
