I have a problem....

So, I need some advice. here 's the issue.

Last season, I took a trip to Boston to see my old military buddy (that's code for, yes we dated back in the day) who lives there and is a Pats fan.  Well, being of the football conscious mind, I planned my trip right when the skins played the Pats and we went to the game.  Now, you remember this was right off the heels of spygate and the Pats were murdering every team they played.  Not as bad as they murdered us of course, worst game I had ever been to. There I am with 10 min left in the 4th quarter and I am just disgusted. Score 52-7 maybe? I started yelling go "Rockies" as it was Game 4 of the world series with the Red Sox sweeping. I know, pathetic right?

Anyone that's ever been to that stadium, I nicknamed it the Razor, knows you have to walk two miles to the parking lots, so my #28 Darrell Green jersey was getting lots of attention.  I am just done with this city and it's fans. Get my mental state yet?  Ok, well after coming home and our season ending in the playoffs, I found myself rooting against those pats every week. Willing them to lose, end of the perfecto.

So, my buddy that I stayed with, we would trade text messages after sundays, harmless right? Well, after the superbowl debacle and his team lost, I couldn't resist picking up the phone and leaving him the drunk, I am so glad your team lost,( next morning wish I could take this back) message.  Was it obnoxious? yes. Was it unsolicited? yes. Did I have to leave it? absolutely.

Bottom line, he won't talk to me anymore.  This is someone I have been friends with for 20 years. I have called, left messages, texts, emails, nothing. I did call him that next day and apologize for my rudeness.  That was four months ago. What should I do? leave him alone, he'll come around? if he doesn't , oh well?
