As far as OV, thats effing hilarious. Having said that the All Star game sucks, and every year my wife and I make a night of the skills competition. Even that sucks. We'll be watching Netflix this weekend.
I take it you've played organized sport, and I find this odd coming from you.
When you're part of a team, you sacrifice part of your individuality every time you put on the jersey or the sweater and it becomes about more than you. Rejecting a Nobel Prize is fine, in my book because it's YOUR award. Rejecting an invite to meet the President at the White House with your team is not OK, because it isn't about you -- it's about the team.
