MLB Season 2020 in Miscellaneous - Non-Political Posted 21 Oct 2020 58 minutes ago, Brad said: I thought you were a Giants and/or As fan???? *Sigh* It's complex, it's the opposite of David's story of Yankees love, so sit down kiddies and listen to my baseball fandom story. I grew up in San Diego, and my first baseball memories is listening to Vin Scully, not a bad way to start, and his "it's time for Dodger baseball" is permanently emblazoned into my skull. I was a Dodgers fan before the Padres hit the MLB (they were PCL, and the first pro game I ever went to was Padres AAA team at Westgate Park, John Boozer - what a name! was the pitcher, and a group of fans behind me kept yelling "Boozer the Loser" throughout the game, I was hooked on baseball after that. I was all of seven. So when the MLB Padres hit the beach, I, of course became fan -- team number two that I followed. I wasted a lot of my youth in the 1970s watching terrible Padres baseball. We lived a five minute drive from the stadium, so my parents would drop me off to go to a game on my own (different time and era) nowadays, CPS would be all over that! So, I was a Padres fan, but durning the 1970s and 80s, the Dodgers were a very interesting team be a fan of, and I even convinced my parents to take me to Dodger Stadium many times to see the Boys in Blue play. Dodger Stadium is a great place to see a game. So there I was, living in SoCal, fans of the two NL teams. Fast forward to the 1990s, and I'm in Berkeley for six years, and I'm discovering that the two teams there were interesting and fun to follow; I mean, you had the Bash Brothers, the Roger Craig Giants, it was interesting baseball to watch, so, I became a fan of those two teams. For the A's, I could take the BART from Berkeley to their stadium, no problem. Going to Candlestick was tougher, but I made it out there. So, now I had four teams I followed and enjoyed. Since then, I've spent more time in NoCal than SoCal, with that, the Giants are my main team. So the Official Matthew Teams Rooting For Rankings: 1. San Francisco Giants 2. Los Angeles Dodgers 3. San Diego Padres 4. Oakland A's That's my story, yeah, I know you're supposed to be a "one team fan", but life is short and baseball is fun, so what the heck!
