    I have no problem with it. I am a nerd but if you want to see true nerds, go to a smaller Con. I have gone to a few local ones and one time accidentally stumbled into the room with the gamers (Magic: The Gathering, D&D, etc). Holy crow, that is another level in that room.

    I have have had a similar experience as well.

    Re: Attention Nerds:

    Yea, those silly nerds making costumes and pretending to be somebody else. Now lets all get back to obsessively following the whims recruited HS kids and prepping to draft fantasy rosters. That's definitely not a bunch of grown men pretending to be coaches and NFL GMs, no sir.

    I won't disagree with this, though most aren't dressing up like Jim Tressel to do so.

    But, I also realized how stupid and lame fantasy football was in my late 20s, so I can't speak for either or.

    I was thinking more along the lines of what some mega-fanatics wear to sporting events... ;)

    Let's just all make peace with the fact that whatever any of us do in our spare time is probably stupid as hell and lay off people doing what makes them happy. That's all I'm getting at.
