Stubble: Tell me what you’re doing in an Elway jersey here at Brit’s Pub today.
Steve: Well, my Zlatan Ibrahimović PSG jersey was dirty from playing soccer on Wednesday, so the only other sports jersey I had was this old school John Elway jersey. It’s actually my friend’s jersey from like 6th grade. But Elway shares the same number as Real Madrid’s best player, the hard-bodied abs Christiano Ronaldo, so at least I’m wearing number 7. I’ve already gotten called out on being a football fan – “It’s the wrong football, mate” – I think were the words.
Stubble: So people have been a little hostile with you, huh?
Steve: Yeah, I think I had some stuff thrown at me and some other shit.
Steve: No, but I have gotten called out for it. But it’s still number seven though! I’m showing my support but people are taking it the wrong way. This is all I’ve got for jerseys relevant for today.
Stubble: Why do you think that is?
Steve: Because it’s not football with a “u” it’s football with “two O’s” and I’m on the wrong side of the fence.
Stubble: Are you excited about the game? Who do you think will win?
Steve: I am, I played a FIFA 2016 demo game and Real is going to win 4-2. Gareth Bale two goals, Benzema one goal, Ronaldo one goal. That’s my prediction.
Stubble: How do you stack your football with two O’s and football with a u fandom, so to speak?
Steve: I’d say that I’ve lost all faith in the Vikings so I’m just grasping at straws. I’m looking at different sports. I’m looking for soccer now, I’m trying to find something. Minnesota sports has left me wanting.
