Traditionally, nature abhors letting opposites mingle with each other. Cats must hate dogs, apples detest oranges, Trekkies cannot enjoy the “Wars”. Obviously these absolutes do not always dictate reality, though they are often perceived that way none-the-less. Another paradoxical term long believed by many to be true is the sport-loving nerd. I can here the thoughts now, “Blasphemy!”, “Sacrilege!”, “False Prophet!”. But, my friends, I am here to tell you that sometimes, this can exist. Barriers all over the world are falling every day. Human being are no longer necessarily cool or uncool, jock or geek, plumber or scientist. It is possible to be from both worlds, now more than ever. If “Revenge of the Nerds” has taught me anything, it’s that we are all nerds in some way, and even guys like Fred “The Ogre” Palowakski can see the light.
