Me: Oh, man! My team just lost, you have to turn that down.
Cabbie: You a Kansas fan? Man, you gotta respect! I was expecting a shut out. That was not a shut out.
Me: It's true. But we were throwing the balls at the basket, instead of shooting them.
Cabbie: But they put up a fight. All you have to ask for.
..... get to the end of the ride
Me, handing him fare: Here you go, thanks.
Cabbie: Hey, thanks. Sorry your team lost. It'll look better in the morning.
