Wow that pretty easy for someone who never comes out and declares his allegiance to a team. In fact, I don't think I've seen you be a fan of any team in any of the 4 sports. Rangers fans, Twins fans, Red Sox fans, they can come in here and dish out the dirt, because I've slung a ton of mud their way too (even though I let the Sox fans off easy this year).
But seriously Matt, if you're not gonna pick a team, then instead of coming in here and bashing Yankee fans, you should just shut up.
Well, that's not a very nice way to start your offseason, is it?
Not bashing Yankee fans collectively--just you, 'cause you're a pompous blowhard who can't go three posts around here without mentioning either how great the Yankees are, or how great you are at fantasy sports, and I think that, coupled with "the greatest team in baseball history" being knocked out of the first round of the playoffs, is comedy gold.
Like I've mentioned before, I'm a casual sports fan, and you're right--I don't have too many allegiances to any teams, at least in the pros, anyway. I much prefer college football and basketball to their pro counterparts, and I root for OU (who, yes, got their asses kicked yesterday) and, to a lesser extent, OSU (and they lost, too). As for baseball, I was a Mets fan twenty years ago, but when they broke up, I pretty much stopped following any certain team. Around here, our minor league team is a farm club for the Rangers, who are also our closest MLB team, proximity-wise, but I've always hated the Rangers, so I don't really root for anybody--just good baseball, although there are certain players and teams I like more than others. (I'm assuming the fourth sport you're referring to is hockey, which I couldn't care less about.)
So for me, when I'm watching a game and don't care one way or another about either team, I root for the underdog. And there hasn't been as big an underdog as the Tigers in recent memory. So their win yesterday, combined with all your (now-meaningless) season-long loudmouth smack talk, well, it was like a gift from God.
Time to eat your **** politely, "Dressel." Don't like it? Too bad.
