Sometimes, it's nice to root for a guy who's always going to do exactly what you expect.
He'll show up on time. He'll play his hardest in the game. He'll speak to the media politely.

A world full of predictable athletes doing predictable things would give us very little to talk about. It'd make it a lot less fun to read the news. It would make Twitter completely obsolete.
