I'd like to put my 2 cents into how I hope we all act after this show is over. To tie in the theme of this thread, I'd like to say that for many of us, no matter which girl you think or want to be Andy's choice, we've (the FORT and its Sleuthers) have gained the reputation and respect for each other by coming together for a show we all love, be it you first time watching or a seasoned veteran like so many of are. Many of us have loved the thrill of the hunt for clues and spoilers and have encouraged and applauded the skills that this accumlative entourage of people persistently dig up to try to figure this show out, at least those of us who frequent these spoiler threads.Here's a question.. about tonight.. since I'm a newbie 1st season FORT-er for the bachelor how does it usually work??? Does the F2 fans get dogged by the F1? Or are we nice on this board??? I hope we're nice..
Being on the opposing "side" (how I hate that alienating sound ) this season as far as who I see as the F1, has been a new experience for me and one I've gained a lot of perspective from. I know now, that I will always have a new respect for those who have opposing picks than I and who stick by them despite the odds. I can truly say I will treat and respect anyone with a different point of view in the way, I hope would always show integrity and an open mind and reflect the way I hoped to be treated..
Above all, this is a show for our entertainment and if I"m wrong, I'm totally prepared to accept it gracefully and I won't need to jump on the hammock to be ok. I am happy for whoever Andy chooses and from reading all his interviews, I'm more delighted that the love has continued and grown between him and his fiancee! That says volumes in the history of this show!
The best thing about the FORT over other fan sites, has always been that the posters are off limits for slamming, razing or making fun of, so with that, I truly expect both sides of this RC deck will let bygones be bygones and be happy for the couple and hopefully for the F2 in finding what and who they want.
Once tonight's over and we've watched tomorrow's AFR show, we'll all go back to some semblance of normalcy and once Sept and Oct. come with the new show and the clues, I will be totally ready to do it all over again!
