    Hey Chris...

    ... that Braves game didn't turn out too well tonight, huh?

    I wanna know how you jumped on the Braves and Bulls bandwagon as a kid, but you didn't hitch up to the Cowboys as well. Seems like that is the norm for everyone in our generation.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I don't know about Chris, but the only reason I'm a Braves fan is because my parents were since the 80s. They were on tv every day back then, even though they were bottom of the barrel.

    How did you hitch up with the Bills?

    Apparently he likes to root for losers. Can't blame him, as I do as well.

    He must have gotten sick of the Cowboys dominating them in the Super Bowl two years in a row, and felt bad.

    Ouch. Thurman Thomas was my boy growing up. When I pick a team I stick with them through thick and thin. It has to get better eventually.... right?..........rightttttt!!!!?????

    I'll be honest being a Cyclone fan, Bills fan, and Cubs fan has taken a toll on me over the past 5-10 years.

    Honestly, the reason I rooted for those teams was because they were on TV all of the time. The winning helped. That's why I was a Vikings fan as a kid too. Almost every game was on TV. During those years, it is a lot easier to cheer for teams that you can actually watch play.

    As have I, so for anyone of my generation that has continued to love the Cowboys shouldn't be considered a bandwagon fan. Same with the Bulls and Cubs. Other than the Championships in the 90's with the Bulls and Cowboys when I was really almost to young to be able to enjoy, I have had nothing to cheer for but heartbreak after heartbreak.

    Your pitching got lit up by a hit and run team in a pitchers stadium.
