I played little league with Andy Van Slykes son. He was a cool guy. I also have a bunch of Neal Heaton memorabilia.
As for the Cubs. If they win a championship, the next season I will not act like a Boston fan, and I'd dare to think that a lot of Cubs fans won't. Boston acts like their shit doesn't stink. Cubs fans have been so accustomed to losing that if they did win, they'd immediately start thinking "Okay, how many decades before we win another one". At least I would. I'm a Cubs optimist, but I've also been a Cubs fan since conception so I know better than to think the Cubs are the greatest team in the world. I'll gloat if they win, yes, but I won't start talking shit the next season until they can prove they're still good.
I live in the Bay Area, but am a lifelong Atlanta Braves fan.
My wife is an Oakland A's fan so I have adopted them as my local favorite, but the Braves will always be my team.
When I was in college in the 80's they used to suck and no one would go to the games, so we'd get tickets cheap and sit where ever we wanted. Many a Saturday and Sunday I have spent dressed up like a frickin' Indian drunk as shit trash talking some other team while it was beating the hell out of my poor Bravos. Especially Lasorda and the Dodgers. Those were the days......
Grew up a fan of the Tigers as a result of living in the area and stayed a fan through the years (it could be worse, they could be the Lions) . However, because of those miserable 20 years from the late 80's up till 2006, I drifted some what and also became a fan of the Atlanta Braves. This Braves thing was probably a result of TNT televising every game imaginable and my like of pitching.
