    Baseball!

    I'm a huge baseball fan and my team Oakland athletics just clinched playoff berth. This guy is on cloud 9!

    What's everyone's team? Are they going to make it?

    Been a while for the A's, eh Doc?

    I cam just a general baseball fan, but have enjoyed the season this year. Been focused on the NFL lately. Good luck to your A's!

    Quite the opposite for me. I'm a hockey fan and I'm bored! I'd watch baseball, but I save all my patience for hunting.

    Dodgers. Yeah, that's right, I'm rooting for the team that just spent $270 million to not make the playoffs (unless the Cards somehow manage to pee down their leg). Wife has me on suicide watch.

    Anybody that beats the Yankees! I'm hoping the O's win the AL East. Glad to see the A's in the fight still to win their division. Sad to see the Rangers in the position they're in but they just can't close the deal. These next 2 days will be interesting

    It will be interesting for sure, especially this game with Melvin's choice of starting pitcher! We need to keep those Texas bats in check.

    2012 A.L. West Division Champs. Yeah that's right! I have been an A's fan for as long as I can remember. I think this is even a better story than 2006. Hey Dr, who's your favorite Athletic of all time. Careful not to date yourself.

    Ha I'm young, my favorites were the smash bros, Giambi and McGwire. I know I know steroid era but those were my first memories of the Athletics. I have some home run balls signed by both of them from batting practice someplace. My mom is a giants fan and my dad a dodgers fan, when I was young, we would go down to the bay and catch an Oakland game and giants game a weekend quite a bit. AL WEST BABY!! Dream come true! I cannot believe it. Matt stairs is up there as well on favorite players. Ricky Henderson....he was a staple for them for a while, I have too many favorites.

    Guess who going to see game 3 on Tuesday, THIS GUY!


    Who's your favorites, please make me feel young.

    Ricky Henderson has always been my favorite. I used to play alot of ball growing up and I was never the fastest guy on the team. So it was easy for me to like the best base runner in history. Like you, my mom is a die hard Giants fan (poor girl) and my dad has been an A's fan his whole life so I guess I followed the smart one in the family.
