i think my favorite thing about the SMH team is just how willing they are to just accept people– and not even accept them, but make them feel immediately welcome. Like… how long do you think Ford was even the manager-in-training before they went to that show and freakin’ cheered for her? a week? two?
like for real, sports’ teams can be very exclusive. (hell, regular friend groups can be a bit standoffish!) And she isn’t even technically on the team. And Ransom and Holster are going to be gone before she is actually the manager? But those two (and I’m sure Shitty and Jack before them) have set up this culture where it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been there or how long you will overlap, if you are part of the Team, you get treated as part of the Team. Pretty much immediately. Literally so fast.
Person: “I hate KS”
Me: fair enough, it’s a story about very mature subjects and is certainly not for everyone.
Person: “I hate Sangwoo”
Me: fair enough, he’s a very complicated character and a murderer after all.
Person: “I hate Yoonbum”
Me: fair enough, he’s also a very complicated character, stalker, and now a murderer.
