    I haven't posted in the 30 page "Pete Rose is Angry" thread.

    You know why?

    Because I truly don't care.

    My first team was the "Earls." Our local youth league had a unique method of naming teams. In the fourth/fifth grade, the teams were all named after feudal titles. We had the Earls, the Dukes, the Counts, the Barons, the Nobles, etc. In 6th grade, the teams were all named after muscle cars. I was on the Camaros, but there were also teams like the Firebirds, Mustangs, Cougars, Chargers, and Barracudas. It wasn't until 7th/8th grade that I got to play on the Reds and freshman/sophomore year of high school when I played on the Indians.

    I became a Reds fan largely because there were no Senators. What was a kid in the early '70s in DC to do?

    Actually I have realized that the Astros have also accomplished another thing, only slightly less impossible than making me a Yankee fan: I have rooted against the Dodgers since the days of the BRM and Tommy Lasorda, whom I loathed, but if and when the Dodgers play the Astros I will be hoping LA crushes Houston.
    I suppose I am now a fan of every team in MLB that plays the Astros.

    Not sure their games ran in the DC at the time. The Senators were newly gone, so the Orioles were still the team just to the north that had been kicking them in the teeth.

    Meanwhile Game of the Week was the Reds more often than not.

    Exactly the same for me, except I was in Norfolk/Va. Beach. Redskins, Bullets, Capitals,...and Reds. It was Game of the Week that reeled me in too.

    I loved to hear Joe Garagiola opening the NBC Game Of The Week whenever the game was played in Cincinnati.

    With these penalties (and the relatively short "investigation), I'd say people must have just admitted what went on.
    it may be that it is far more common then we care to believe.. perhaps this one came to light and they are doing there best to make it go away quick... can we really feel comfortable betting the ranch on this was a one time thing....

    My first year of Little League, way back in 1965, the teams were just named after our sponsor. I played for Wayne Sales and Service, the local Ford dealer. Other teams included local supermarkets and a funeral home. By my last year of Little League in 1967 those teams were also given MLB team names, so I was playing for the Wayne Sales and Service Cardinals, while other teams included the Morris Booten Funeral Home Giants, the W&J Motor Sales Mets, and the Asbury's Market Reds. I can remember being disappointed that the Wayne Sales and Service sponsored team wasn't given Reds as its nickname.
    Of course it could have been worse-my Babe Ruth team was named the Yankees.

    Yeah, that whole thing was a PR disaster for the franchise. We lost our endorsement deal with Sam Drucker's General Store.
