I am a fair weather braves fan.  I have nothing to look forward to and haven't for a while now.  There for a while there was lots to look forward to, but we were pretty consistently disappointed with amazing regularity.

Mets

Try being a Cubs fan......5 outs away from the show with a 8 run lead .....................


Boston V's Cubs , field box would put you back about 5-10 large

Hey, The Padres are MUCH bigger chokers than the Brewers - If they lose to the Rockies, the Brewers will get retribution!. For a young team that lost thier Ace down the stretch, the Brew Crew didn't do too shabby. They will be back next year, hopefully with a better bullpen...

The Red Sox are going all the way again. The Skankees are gonna get axed by the Injuns>

Nah some fan for the Cubs will screw them out of going to the World Series again just like last time. Cubs have had good teams just ignorant fans. :)

I actually believe it will come down to the Diamondbacks and Yankees and the Yankees will win it in 5. ;) The Yankees have crushed Boston all year long in their games against each other and they have like an 8-3 record vs Indians so if they don't choke like last year they'll be in the WS this year.

Well as a SF Giants fan, I have had nothing to brag about for some time, and have never seen them win a World Series since I started following them in '68, so I've seen enough choking on my team to know what Mets fans are feeling...and at least they have a couple of rings on their fingers...

well at least you are not a Pirate fan, Vampires ie seller dwellers.. I remember when they where the team but it has been such a long long time ago!
Anybody remember Stargel/' Stars? Big Dave Parker? Blylevn,sp? Kison... the joys of my youth.. now the locals here in Colorado actually are looking at a Rockies team that is into the post season, if only for a day!

as for me, GO AVE's! now there is a sport worth watching

Oh, I am not a NY Met fan but I still have nothing to look forward to. For you see, I am an Oriole fan. Home of the worst owner in pro sports.

And this fan is also saddled with an die-hard affection for the Miami Dolphins.

Yup, I am screwed for a long time...

Brewers gone and as mentioned before a bullpen would sure help, and the ace while good when there has shown that the only thing you can count on is that he will have another injury.

Now of course we are all thrilled about the Pack being back.   At least until the bubble bursts. We are also thrilled that Favre won the most touch down crown before winning the most interceptions crown.

And we all know Peyton Manning will crush all of Farve's records so he better enjoy it the few years he will get to while he can. hehe As far as Dallas their true test comes in a few weeks when they play New England. Now, if they beat them then I'll be a believer. They haven't really played anybody yet but the Giants and the Giants were just luke warm in the opener, they always are. The Bears are weak they aren't going anywhere Brian just ain't his dad. Greenbay and Dallas in NFC championship game and New England and Baltimore for AFC championship. New England and Dallas in Super Bowl and whoever loses this meeting between them in a few weeks will win the Super Bowl. ;) Remember I told you here on this date.

HEYYYYYYYY What did yall think about that State Farm commerical for protection? lol I laughed my butt off everytime I saw it. Has those huge defensive linemen going up what looks like junior high kids as offensive linemen for the opposing team. When that one guy just picks that lil kid up and charges into the backfield I just cracked up.

Maybe you are a young buck who was not around in 1971, but I still have bitter memories of the Pirates defeating the Giants in the NL Championship series....thanks for the miserable flashback....

Well at least I got to live long enough to see the Astros make it to the World Series ONCE. lol Sorta wanted to see the Rangers there at least once, but, that cheap bassturd of an owner won't cough up any money for any decent pitching. They've always had batting, but, rarely a decent starting lineup except old outdated pitchers ready for the retirement home like Nolan Ryan and Charlie Huff. Michael Young should have pulled up sticks when he had the chance, he's such a waste on a team like the Rangers.

Certainly would bring back memories of my youth. One thing we learned back in the day was to hate the Dallas Cowboys. So the saying almost became "I only root for two teams to win, the Packer's and anyone who is playing the Bear's (except the Cowboys)" seemed to be in order.

I remember that game, when Bart Starr inched his way over the goal line luckily back in the 60's ;) I was there (in my living room) watching it haha I actually was rooting for Green Bay at that time because my dad was a avid Cowboys fan and got all pissed off if anyone rooted for another team against them. lol I also was a big Washington Redskins fan after Chis Hanburger came to our HOUSE with some insurance salesman. My dad was all excited about it, to me he was just another person in our living room lol. My dad had to tell me to ask him for his autograph lol. I wouldn't ask a player for his autograph today either. I think it's rather silly to put these people up on some pedestal like that. They are just doing a job and getting paid for it. Hey I also went swimming with the Lennon Sisters (from the Lawarance Welk show) at Ceasars Palace swimming pool. They were putting on some show there.

Please accept my sincere condolences and sympathy

Of course the Bear/Packer rivilary is the longest and perhaps one of the most important and hard fought in Pro Football History.

By the way, why do most all those flatlanders who live in "The Best Location in the Nation" travel up here for vacation and/or building second homes?

I'm a Mets fan too - though I admit I've paid much less attention to them over the last five years... I'm also a Jets fan, so I must have a masochistic streak of some kind.

There seems to be a whole group of posters here that are gluttons for punishment. Just call this the "whipping boy thread." Its tough sometimes being a fan in these frachises that come uphort on a regular basis.

Could there be a connection between being a fan to one of these loosing teams and being a wargamer. hmmmmm? Only your therapist can tell
