The Expos were my favourite professional sports team. I followed them religiously since I was four years old, and they were the reason I took up baseball in the first place... and when they moved, it was the reason that I quit playing. I wasn't able to be there for the last home game, but I watched it on the Score, and I bawled like a baby when the game ended, and for hours afterwards.

As far as the team's demise goes, you should blame Brochu and Loria for driving the fans away and gutting the team time and time again. You should blame Selig for not caring enough about the team to prevent the farce that occurred in the 2000s. Hell, you could blame Parizeau, Bouchard and the PQ for trying to make all of the Anglos leave Quebec, because that little stunt cut into the Expos' fanbase deeply. Whatever you do, though, don't blame the fans, because it was us who kept the bloody team around as long as it was.
