Who all here watches ball/ what teams do guys cheer for? I'm a Bo Sox fan myself, picking up my 10 game flex to see all the Jays-Sox games in a few days.

I used to be a huge Jays fan....then the lockout happened and I havent really cared for baseball ever since. I still cheer for Jays just dont give two shits about baseball anymore.

I have played baseball since I was a toddler. Up until my last year of high school, I was considered one of the best fielding shortstops and third-basemen in Ontario. Arm, range, glove-work, and natural athleticism. I was also a pitcher who hit 91mph on the radar gun.

But just before the SATs, I fell backwards while skateboarding and ripped the muscles in my right arm. I learned to become ambidextrous but ... yea.

So now, I watch baseball because I'm living vicariously :[ -- I'm a Boston Red Sox fan; though that's on shaky ground right now. I'm just a romantic for baseball. It's the greatest sport in the world.
