Well, let's not forget two things: team owners and management make just as many money-based decisions on breaking up their own teams as to players leaving in free agency, etc.

If you want to blame someone for the dissolution of professional sports' integrity, add television to the list. Teams, players and managers became 'talent' for network programming, and everyone followed the money. It's not the game, not the sport, it's the dollars... which is why many sports fans flock to minor league teams: no commercial breaks, no bucks to interefere with the game.

That aside, as for teams I follow, being a SoCal native, the Dodgers were always my baseball team though I don't follow the sport closely as a fan. I enjoy the NFL much more, though the LA-area still lacks its own team! If we ever do get a team again (won't be soon!), I hope I can afford to get season tickets.

Football! Sing it with me -

When you're a Jet, you're a Jet all the way
From your first cigarette to your last dyin' day...

Of course, I haven't thrown any green & white superbowl parties. Some day, maybe.

At least the Evil Spawn of Hell Patriots blew their season! Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!
