2009-03-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Oh, dear baseball writer, you have much to learn about fanhood.
(David from Sonoma State University, CA)
Touche. Except that I'm at least twice your age and have to deal with rooting for three teams, one by geneology (the Dodgers, of which I'm a 3rd generation fan dating back to my grandfather's days rooting for Babe Herman), one by geography (the Yankees, though recent events are testing that one) and one by marriage (the Brewers, who are dear to the hearts of my baseball-loving in-laws and who tap into my love of that 1982 team).

Context is important. In a hot tub full of babes -- a common occurrence during a young man's college days, of course -- are you really going to dork it up by wearing a soggy cap? (Jay Jaffe)
