I have to give you kudos for your convictions. I sincerely do. You're sticking to your guns with a probable- less than popular opinion. I simply can't give in to the fear of losing the Reds. We already went through that with the new stadiums proposition. I can't be held hostage again. I won't do it. I'm also of the belief that baseball will never die, but if it folded, it would come back looking much differently than it does today and better. You see, I can give up MLB. I could fanaticize a minor league, or some other form of the game. I really could, I did it with football.
I was a Browns fan, because my Dad was. It was an entertainment that we shared. You know what? I don't follow any particular football team right now. I walked away from football because of Art Modell. I watch, but not with the same interest. I'll follow baseball, but it will be tainted for me. It's not because I'm a casual fan, it's because I'm a passionate fan that shrugged and walked away.
