Re: Has the WTA fandom affected personal relationships?
Yes! I'm the same. When Justine played Maria in the 2006 USO Final, and it looked like Justine wasn't going to be able to turn things around, my roommates kept trying to irritate me with things like, "Oh, the one that looks like a mail-order-bride is beating the the one who likes a boy orphan." I turned to them during one of the commercial breaks and said I'll break the fucking lease if they don't shut the fuck up. And then slammed the door on my way out for a cig.
