I have the nice advantage of being in a position of rooting for a team that has absolutely no shot of winning anything, and therefore will be a blast to see in person.

Go Nats! You fucking losers!

Wish I had tickets to see the Dodgers-Red Sox at the LA Coliseum, but I'm not one of the lucky 120,000. It's easily going to be the biggest crowd for a game ever.

Go Nats!!

I'm also continue to support the Reds, which is a fairly pointless exercise. I also like the Pirates because their low-A affiliate is in my hometown and I support them. Also, very pointless.

Reed. Matej.

I'm sure you are both nice fellows.

But may you be damned for all eternity for supporting the Nationals.

Your MK Dons jerseys are in the mail.

Better send one to Inca too, for supporting that team.

Go......I'm still a free agent.

Yes, Amor and I have had many a discussion about Joe Carter's homerun and the legitimacy of the Toronto Blue Jays. He has since convinced me that Canada is a worthy holder of the title of World Champion in baseball, but I arrived there grudgingly.

Toronto-Atlanta was great, but left me a little sour after Minnesota-Atlanta. Because Minnesota-Atlanta was The Greatest World Series of All Time, I was really pulling for Atlanta with their young, energetic team and great quasi-racist fan gimmick.

Toronto-Philly, however, wasn't the Greatest World Series but most definitely was The Craziest World Series Of All Time. Whatever the brakes are that stop teams from scoring....were broken. They couldn't stop scoring if they said "hey, it's getting too late, let's end this thing already."

I'm sorry you or anyone didn't see Minnesota-Atlanta, Inca. It was the last of the great division races (when there was only 4 divisions,) with both teams being the first-ever to go worst-to-first. Atlanta was entirely full of young stars, while Minnesota's best players were old-timers on their last ride. I mean now you hear 4 games decided on last bat, 5 games extra innings...but really think about what that means with baseball. I mean one World Series game decided on the last at-bat would be incredible, same for extra innings.

Those Toronto world series are great memories for me as well. I grew up north of Syracuse, and saw some (though admittedly not many) of those players ply their trade in the AAA affiliate Syracuse Chiefs (now the more socially acceptable SkyChiefs). I was very into the games, collected baseball cards, the whole deal. But I fell away from the game. I guess I'm starting to get back into it now, with DC having a team of its own (sorry AG). With all of the young players to watch develop, the likelihood of stars getting sold (rather than called up) at the end of the season...it's like watching a highly paid version of my old Chiefs. Maybe it's time to see what design Topps has on the cards this year...

Huh?

Matej, I wouldn't call myself a full-blown Dodger supporter, but I worryingly find myself inching ever closer to being one. If I ever moved anywhere outside of SoCal, I think I would have to get a Dodger blue blood transfusion by wearing a Dodger cap, to represent LA to the fullest and turn everyone against me. I know I could piss everyone off more by wearing a Laker jersey, but I can't pull off that look.

From the wording it sounded like you didn't see it.

No, I've got no beef with Inca and his Dodgerdom. To be perfectly clear, I am totally hypocritical about this. Teams moving don't bother me, per se. My team moving bothers me. And so it is only Nationals fans who are on the receiving end of my everlasting curse.

No, I saw it JV. I remember having shop class the next day after Game 7 and none of us getting any work done, just talking about the game, and Mr. Kelty yelling at us "AAAAAAAAAW-rite! Back to WEEEEEEEYRKKKKK!"

It's not our fault the Expos got screwed by their owners, then raped by Jeffrey Loria, then rogered by the league again for good measure, and its not our fault that Peter Angelos kept blocking an expansion team from coming to DC despite his claim that "there are no real baseball fans in DC" and the fact that the markets chosen instead - Miami, Tampa, Phoenix and Denver - were certainly no better than Washington. It's not our fault that Clark Griffith moved the Senators (a franchise that had been very successful in the 1920s) to Minnesota because he was a racist and wanted to move to a city with more white people. It's not our fault that Bob Short (also responsible for moving the Lakers out of Minnesota and then selling them, ironically, to Jack Kent Cooke, who later owned the Redksins) was a bad owner and traded for Denny McLain then decided to skip out of town to Dallas.

All true, Reed. And yet, here we are - eternal Damnation for the pair of you.

Life's funny, isn't it?
