Overheard at the Ballpark

Somewhere in the upper deck of RFK this afternoon, in the heat of another hot Blue Jays-Nationals rivalry game:

SON: Let's go Blue Jays!
FATHER: No. No, no, no. You never root for the Blue Jays.
SON: Why not?
FATHER: Two reasons. One, they're Communists. They come from Canada. They're not even American.

If there was a second reason, I didn't stick around to hear it.
