In response to Ice-Cream's comment:
Hey everyone :)
The regular season has almost come to an end.
So which team will you be rooting for?
I will be rooting for the Oakland A's. I like rooting for Cinderella teams.
I picked the A's to finish in last place and Billy Beane has made me look like a fool. lol
It's great to see former Red Sox players such as Moss, Crisp, and Reddick (he finally broke an 0 for 30 slump) doing well.
P.S. GO PATRIOTS!!! :)
I have been a loyal Boston teams fan, Sox, Celtics & Pats, all my life as 1st 21 years were in Maine. But with last 45 in SF I have been a local fan too. There are some fanatical fans who believe one should only be loyal to one team or state/region’s teams all their lives. I guess had I stayed in New England all my life I would have been. But it seems the only positive reasons to root for Sox is that they could be spoilers or continue to lose to get better draft picks. But can’t a man have more than one love ? I am hoping the Sox by some miracle sweep the Yankees & they don't even make the playoffs---we can celebrate as the Orioles did to us last year as if they won the World Series knocking us out of playoffs. I'm not in love with the Orioles or Tampa but hate them less than the Yankees.
I like the A's too---remind me of the 2004 Sox---and also happy our alumni, Moss, Crisp, and Reddick, are doing well too !!!
Of, course, in the other league I'm hoping Dodgers even with Gonzo don't make playoffs & don't I wish Sox had the SF Giants pitching & will root for Giants. Our alumnus Marco Scutaro is doing teriffic too !!!
I’ll root for the Pats but also I have a pretty good backup team to keep up my NFL hopes, the 49ers !!! And the Celtics are my #1 basketball team so I’ll be at Warrior games to root against the Lakers, whom I hate as much as the Yankees!!!
