help me choose a new baseball team to cheer for.
« on: April 02, 2007, 03:03:53 PM »
Ever since the Expos moved to Washington moved I've been in favorite team limbo. I don't have one and I'm becoming less interested in baseball because of it. Since then I've been to lots of Mets games and to one Mariners game in Seattle.
I can cheer for the Blue Jays, but they are in the AL and I'm not supposed to like Toronto.
I can cheer for the Mets but noone wants to do that.
I can go to school in Boston but I have repeatedly told myself not to be an obnoxious Red Sox fan.
I can't cheer for the Marlins, their owner moved the Expos away.
I can go to school in Atlanta, but the Braves monopolized the NL East such that the expos never made the play-offs.

What to do?

Expos, go back home
Take the next plane and leave us alone
Go scratch your balls under another sky
Don't even take the time to say goodbye
We need cash for our hospitals
We ain't got nothing for the baseball
You see, usually I sing in French
But this time I want you to understand

Expos, leave our town
Hope you won't have your ballpark downtown
Take the bus and go back home
Leave the Stadium for the Rolling Stones
We need cash for our hospitals
We ain't got nothing for the baseball

I wish I had more fingers to cross.

First, the Braves will NO LONGER DOMINATE! They missed the playoffs last year for the first time in what, 13 or 14 seasons? Bleh. The Braves stink.

Pick the Astros. They're fun.

this is not a good reason

GO METS

but really, I would pick the team in the city you go to school in ... and while most fit your assessment not ALL red sox fans are obnoxious.  And if you are in Boston it is hard not to get caught up in it.  I was at Northeastern the semester that the sox came back on the As in the DS and then had that epic series with the yankess ... even though I'm a mets fan I was all in for the sox that year ... rioting for no reason is a lot of fun...

if i had to pick a team to root for, it'd be the royals.  pure.

yeah thats right, pick another team that you can cheer on for a few years and then watch get bought by the league and dismantled or shipped off to a bigger market

First of all, your next favourite team needs to be a National League team.

Second, don't pick a team with a super big payroll (this will drop the Mets, as my definition of a "super big payroll" is anything over $100 million).

Heck, just root for the Washington Nationals.

you're kidding right?  Pittsburgh is possibly the worst city in the US.  Anything that comes from there sucks.  The Pirates are doomed to the cellar of the NL for the next decade.

Same for the Royals, btw.
