Strangely enough I think I could have continued to support the team if they moved to Brooklyn, assuming the New York fans didn't make a point of rubbing it in our faces.
I became an Expos fan in 2000 (I believe) when my grandfather told me the team was off to a hot start and went on to learn that he had been a die-hard Brooklyn Dodgers fan growing up. For some reason I think that connection would have been enough for me to stick with the franchise.
