OT - MLB - Expos
 
Lot's of Soccer Talk lately, but last time I checked Montreal was a North American City.

Does anybody here miss the Expos & what team do you go for these days.

Personally, in Toronto, (for the short term), but being from the West Island I can never get into American League Baseball with the DH. I'm a National leaguer for Life. I Kinda watch the San Diego Padres in the standings, since they were the Expo's Sister Team...

But miss having a Canadian team of our own...

Why you gotta make me think about that man.

I miss going to the big O for 10$ to watch a game even if i was never really a huge expos fan. I always followed them but my team has always been the Red Sox.

Sorry, Watched the Jay's/Phillies game last night & it reminded me how great it was to see Philly at the Big Owe. It was a nice National League Rivalry..

I think that might have been around 1993, that Philly's team with John Kruk. It was a good fight! I remember being at the Stade myself, It was a great atmosphere..

Yes! Bud Selig is on my enemy list! He is not welcome in the North. I was in Dunedin, Florida & somebody inked that on a urinal in the that Stadium's bathroom.

It said Bud Selig Sucks.

OK, I also liked it when the Mets were in.

Kachino 05-18-2008 12:34 PM

I used to be a huge baseball fan (going to about 20 games/year, participating in baseball pools, knowing almost every single player from all MLB teams, knowing MLB's future stars...)

All that change when the Expos left for Washington. Since then, I haven't really followed baseball like I used to and also only watch pennant races and playoffs.

Player 61 05-18-2008 12:37 PM

I'm old enough to remember Blue Monday, I was just a kid at the time, but nobody was on the Streets of Montreal that day. All glued to TV's

Damn Dodger's!!!

MoonlightGraham 05-18-2008 12:44 PM

Expos fan for life here. I miss them so much. Now I don't follow baseball as much. I like the Red Sox, but it's not the same.

:(

Megaforce 05-18-2008 12:55 PM

Great thread.

Life is boring without the 'Pos.

I like the Habs, but my first love was the local baseball club.

I don't follow baseball at all now.

I grew up in Toronto, but my teacher was a huge Expo fan. I still remember him stopping class so that we could watch the game.

Well the ending sucked, but it was my first time ever watching the Expos.

Yes! Before Internet, the message was still let out. The Montreal Expo's were it then. They were Canada's Team!

It's sad...

Even though I'm only 16, I started following the Expos while I was about 9 years old and I was a huge fan. Would make the ride to Montreal about 10 times a year to see a game there. The other games, I would watch on TV (the rare ones who where on) or I'd be glued to my radio everynight listening to the games. I also enjoyed training camp, following our future players.

I really miss Vladimir Guerrero and Brad Wilkerson too...

Man, I can just hope that in 2025 or something, a new team comes in town, I'd be a happy man there...

Since they left, I don't follow baseball a lot, I'll watch a game sometimes if I turn on a TV and it's on... My teams are the Jays and Mets', but right now, I cheer for the D-Rays, I hope they can make it to the playoffs at last.

Oh and I remember that 4-game series against the Phillies. I was at my uncle's camping and while they were partying near the campfire, I was sitting away, listening to CKAC.

I'm going for him, he's always welcome in the North!

Hab-a-maniac 05-18-2008 01:20 PM

Was an Expo fan as a small kid, but then I stopped paying attention until I was 6 and became a Jays fan since they seemed to be doing alright. Well, I am not too high on baseball these days but that's what comes from cheering for a moribund franchise. I like baseball, but it's harder to get into it with such a loser team to root for. Hockey felt the same when the Habs were crap from 98-01 but now my passion is as high as ever and always will be huge, not just thanks to the Habs but also thanks to the fact I find hockey the most interesting sport of all.

A man of the people. One of my favorite Expo's! The Spaceman....
