I asked him how he came to be a Dodgers fan just making small-talk, and he goes "Well that's a long story... I used to be an Indians fan, but then they had some bad seasons and I dropped them and started following The Red Sox. And now with Boston being crappy I'm a Dodgers fan." I just looked at him in disbelief. I couldn't believe anyone would even admit to that, much less be that much of a fair-weather front-running "fan".
If you can't tough out the bad seasons you don't deserve the good seasons!
I don't get that. On the other hand, I sat next to a Dodger fan who lives in Lexington. He's lived there for about 20 years but grew up in L.A. I can respect that. That's loyalty to your hometown there.
