Despite the fact she thinks I am a right wing hit job artist, Mary Ellen is a very nice lady and an avid baseball fan. Greg is too ( uh, that is baseball fan, not a nice lady).
Both are Sox fans, ME the White Sox and Greg the Red Sox. I must admit that baseball is not my favorite, but I do enjoy going to the games in person. Watching one on TV is not as exciting, especially when there are 162 games in a season. But I do enjoy it during the playoffs and the Series, because every game is crucial at that point.
As a boy living in So Cal, I was always an Angels fan. For the longest time, I figured they would never win anything. Of course, they proved me wrong awhile back and I suppose that has regenerated my interest, in the game. I was mad at all of them in the 80s and 90s, because of the strikes and basically boycotted them for many years.
Although it is titled for ME and Greg, if you are a baseball fan, this thread is for you. I am busy for the biggest part of the day and may not be able to comment much, so have at it.
(If there are any ex-pat fans out there, this is your chance to talk up your favorite team.)
