    As one who was born and raised in San Diego, lived there for 40 years, and is a die hard SD Padres and Chargers fan...I applaud your loyalty despite the obvious pain and annual disappointment associated with it :p

    I was loyal to Bobby Cox and the Braves for many years. Greg Maddux is the 2nd best ever in my opinion; but: the extra game tonight is a tune up!

    My in-laws had season tickets about 10 rows from the home dugout from the 1980's till the strike shortened season. They gave them up after that.

    And the best?

    (If your answer is anything other than Nolan Ryan, you are a heretic).

    Lived near Milwaukee for about 12 years and went to 7-8 games a year.

    Have my obligatory share of the Packers too. Could only afford to go to 1 game in all that time!

    I worshipped Nolan as a child/teen/and adult! He played 21 or 22 years if I remember correctly.

    27 years...from 66 to 93.

    Best pitcher I ever saw.

    When he retired, I stopped watching baseball.

    At 46 years old he beat the shit out of Robin Ventura. He gets the GOAT title just for that.

    When in Pittsburgh, be a Pirate (even if you're in last place). For tonight's game, I'm a National because of Trey Turner, who starred at NCSU before the majors.

    My dad is from Wisconsin, some of my family up there have had season tickets to the Brewers for 50 years or longer. Glad to see them doing well.

    Or the 48’ wide strike zone! Love watching the old videos of those guy’s getting k’s on pitches 8’ off the plate. And glad they always choked in the playoffs.

    Probably will lose in the 1st roound as they always do though. Hard being a fan of any Washington team (except when the Caps finally won the cup!!!).

    Hahaha, touche my good sir, touche!!

    I will just base that statement off of my 50+ non commie friends at the game tonight (not counting the 10+commie associates/friends) vs my 2 non commie friends in the LA area.

    Edit to add my youngest brother and his wife are 2 of the 10 in the commie section

    I haven’t watched a game in years. I did recently find out that a guy I played travel ball with for a few years is pitching for the marlins now. Austin Brice is his name, grew up and graduated high school in Pittsboro. I bumped into him at dinner Sunday night.

    The Cardinals manager, Mike Shildt, is a local boy, went to Olympic high school in Charlotte. My son went to a baseball summer camp he was working in 1993. At the time he was a middle school coach.

    Nobody gets that position on a team like the Cardinals or Braves without a serious pedigree!

    Loved that guy. Pitched for my home town Padres when I was a kid. One of the best pitcher mustaches ever...
