Re: Watching the Cubs rally
I have to agree that I hate the Cubs...and I hate them because of their fans. Coming into another teams ballpark and booing the home team or calls for the home team is just rude and disrespectful. I have been to other parks before to watch the Reds, but I certainly don't boo the home team and scream at the umps. It is ok to cheer you team in another stadium, but you don't say comments like "sit down" and Griffey strikes out at GABP. I am definitely going to savour the flavor of the Cubs being swept by torturing every Cubs fan I know.
One thing about me is I go through a period of hatred towards a team, my hatred is not permanent. It is usually towards bandwagon teams. In the early 90s I hated the A's and Braves. In the late 90s I hated just the Braves. Today I hate the Red Sox, Cubs, and I still have some hatred towards the Braves mainly because of their hillbilly fan base and Skip Carey. The funny thing is I really have no hatred toward other teams in other sports, it is just a baseball thing for me. Oh yeah and for some reason that I can't ever identify I will always hate the Pittsburgh Pirates. Mainly because I live in West Virginia and when you have a choice of proximity in WV to support either the Reds or Pirates, why would anyone in their sane minds cheer for the Pirates? That team is depressing!
