An elementary teacher starts a new job at a school in San Diego,
and trying to make a good impression on her first day, explains to
her class that she's a Chargers fan. She asks the class to raise their
hands if they too are Charger fans.
Everyone in the class raises their hand except one little girl.
The teacher looks at the girl with surprise and says: "Mary, why
didn't you raise your hand?"
Because I'm not a Chargers fan," she replied.
The teacher, still shocked, asked: "Well, if you're not a Chargers
fan, then who do you support?"
"I'm a Bronco fan, and proud of it," Mary replied.
The teacher could not believe her ears. "Mary, why are you a Bronco
"Because my Mom and dad are from Denver and my Mom is a Bronco fan
and my dad is a Bronco fan, so I'm a Bronco fan too!"
"Well," said the teacher, in an obviously annoyed tone, "that's no
reason for you to be a Bronco fan. You don't have to be just like
your parents all of the time. What if your Mom was a prostitute and
your dad was a drug addict and a car thief, what would you be then?"
Mary said, "I'd be a Raiders fan."
