Your first baseball game

At first i didn't remember the date. I just remembered that i liked the Astros and they were playing the Braves.  I was a big fan of Steve Finley, Jeff Bagwell, and Craig Biggio. We won that game I didn't remember the score. However I took 1 thing from that game.....Steve Avery.

He was the young flame thrower that I wanted to be just like. He took the loss in that game. I went back and found the link to that game. I dont know (now) what i saw in Avery.  http://www.thebaseballcube.com/box/
1991/ATL199104170.shtml


Its kind of cool looking back and remember that was when i became a Braves fan.

Anyone else got a early sports memory?

Cowboys fan or NFL fan??? Braves fan or MLB fan??

i keep hearing how Cowboy fans that dont live in Texas are bandwagoners. I have my reasons for being a Cowboys fan, as do others.  But more than being a Cowboy fan, I am a fan of the NFL. Honestly i'm glad that we dont win the super bowl every year. I like balance, so i have no problem with the Eagles signing Asante Samuel. I like to see hard faught games where you dont know who will win.  While playing i always took time to appriciate the fine litte details (like running lanes, angles, bumps/ holes in the field, smell of the grass before the game ).  So to see a team that wins 16 games isnt exactly my cup of tea, but its nice once a decade i would guess. I find it hard to root just for one team and say i hate all the others.  I follow college football and like to watch the kids go pro and usually follow them on their new teams.  I very seldomly hate teams (Patriots), but when i do it is usually for a short while. Patriots until they fire thier coach. 1995 Steelers are an example of a team i hated because i felt they cheated the Colts out of a Super Bowl, but after 3 years i moved on and got over it. As for rivalries, i hate to lose to a division rival just like most. Which brings me to my question...Is it bad to be more of an NFL fan than just a one Team fan?????? 

I've been called a few things for picking my favorite teams.  Alot of it has come from accessablilty (TV).  I was told that you cant really fully understand what it is like to be a ______(pick a team to fill in the blank) fan until you live in that state and then understand what the communtiy feels. I could disagree anymore. I dont think that just because you live in Phillym that you should root for everything Philly.  If you want to than that great, but you shouldnt be forced to. Is it bad to root for teams outside your homestate or hometown????  I understand that if a team moved to my team i would go watch them play, but not change them to my new favorite team.

My reasoning for being a Anahim Mighty Duck fan is really dumb. I will post why i am a fan of what i am. But it states that i became a fan of them because of the TV series Mighty Ducks that fought evil vilians. I havent seen that show in over 10 years, but as a young kid that molded my opinion. Its little things that make you pick a team. I usually root for teams that have the same kid of personalitly i do. Rays in baseball for an example. They arent my favorite team, but i really enjoy the way they run their team and how they play.

So i'd like to ask those bold ?'s and Why are you a fan of the teams that you are?

Eli overrated or did he jump that hurdle?

Eli's put up some big games against my Cowboys so i've always seen his potential. however i've really have never seen the guy just take over a game until this year. i dont know when this happened, but somewhere during the season he started clicking.it certainly didnt click when the Giants had the pats owned during week 17 and choked. For a guy who is now a hero for his playoff preformance, i think he is only average from the stats aspect. i know there are more than stats to deal with. he had 23 Touchdowns and 20 picks this year. nothing extraordinary. a career 73.4 passer rating isnt a braggable achievement either.had it not been for his teams stellar defence and a lucky pass in the superbowl, would eli have gotten any publicity? i hate to do this, but i compare Eli to Rex Grossman. if you look at Grossman's 2006 stats to Eli's 2007 stats they are the same. they rode a great Defense to the super bowl. only Rex choked and Eli played solid. dont get me wrong i'm not saying Rex and Eli are the same talent, but i am saying that neither are superstars. Average QB's can win in the NFL aka Jeff Garcia but IMO eli just doesnt have the tools to become a superstar. however if he keeps manageing the game like he did in the super bowl, he will be pretty decent
