  • Duke the fierce and grumpy

    Most of the time, most people find themselves cheering on the little guy.

    When David faced and defeated Goliath, everyone cheered, “Way to go, Dave.”

    When Rocky took on Apollo Creed, we joined the chant and yelled, “Rocky, Rocky, Rocky.”

    When the underdog defeats the No. 1 team in any sport, we all suddenly become fans.
