Did I forget anybody's teams?
But the Cardinals (Brodeurs Cups) are still in it!
I'm a Mets fan and a Mariners fan. Been rooting for both since I was like 5 (which was 18 years ago... holy crap). But I'm fine with being categorized as a Mets fan. Sadly enough that's still somehow better...
I always liked the Mariners because of Griffey, and then Ichiro, but I wouldn't call myself a fan.
Griffey is how I became a fan of the team at first. Going back to like 93 here. Mariners were always my primary team. The Mets were in the picture because my family is full of Mets fans. I was always around it, and went to games at Shea from time to time. The Mets took more priority in the last 5-6 years just out of convenience. I was going to more Mets games, watching them more, etc. Was much harder to keep up with the M's when I went to college as I had the Mets on TV all the time. That, and the Mariners have sucked terribly, but that's besides the point. Don't know if they'll go back to my #1 again, but I still easily acknowledge it as a team I'm a legit fan of. Still try to go to some of their games in Yankees Stadium every season. Been to probably 6-10 of their games at the old/new stadium. Not sure if I want to go to another again though, since I saw Griffey hit a homer at the last one I was at (in his last full season). Definitely the top Mariners related moment I've had the privilege of seeing in person. Even better than the trip I took out to Safeco about 8 years back.
"There's too much drama, man," Ortiz told Dominguez in reference to the Red Sox. "There's too much drama. I have been thinking about a lot of things. I don't know if I want to be part of this drama for next year."
But would Ortiz really consider defecting to the other side of baseball's biggest rivalry?
"That's something I gotta think about," Ortiz said. "I've been here on the Red Sox a long time, and I've seen how everything goes down between these two ballclubs."
Ortiz stopped well short of saying he wanted to play for the Yankees, but did express respect for the organization.
