We haven't made the playoffs since I was 5. I think I might have an idea of what being a Fordham fan is like.
I had tickets to game 7 of the '93 World Series. Joe Carter saw to it that they went unused.

I would say Richmond. I like Mooney and loved Anderson and Harper, although its a borderline joke KA got poy award over Crawford 2009-10 season
I invite you to go to 3:31 in this video in case you forgot why KA won the POY

Look, I loved KA's game. I don't know for whom I'd have voted that year. I think you can make a compelling argument for either player, and I certainly don't think it is even a borderline joke that KA won it. But to say that one play where he beat Jordan Crawford--one time--as justification, is flat out silly.

Ouch.

Hey, at least I have the Yankees.

I love the "us against the world" attitude the league shares and how it's a sibling rivalry with all of us. I get the feeling that Temple and SJU fans will obviously rip on LaSalle, but if a Nova fan was ripping on LaSalle, they'd say "Shut up. You've squeaked by LaSalle by three two years ago and needed OT to beat them last year, you shouldn't be talking trash about LaSalle."



PM.
Hawks fans really can't say much about La Salle either. Check out highlights from "The Hawk is Dead" game...

And don't forget, it takes La Salle's former AD and former player/coach to make Temple a success in their current form.

You win.

Being in the same division as the Yanks, Red Sox, Tampa Bay, and the Orioles is just flat-out ridiculous.

Bona84, I was at that game in the SkyDome. It might have been the happiest day of my childhood. When Joe Carter hit that walk-off in the 9th I screamed and screamed and screamed. Good times.

Everything pretty much sucked after that.

Following Andy Glockner of SI is hilarious because for some crazy reason he's a Jays fan too. It's a hard life.

DB, did you grow up in the Centre of the Universe or move there later?

Re: 2nd Favorite A-10 Team

Is Toronto the centre of the universe? lol

If so, yes, born and raised. Only came down to Richmond for school. Toronto is home. I had a friend and neighbor go down to St. Bonaventure for undergrad. He's at GW for med school now.

You must be kidding. Surely, you must know the feelings of the rest of your countrymen and the nickname they have given you.

btw, a number of years ago, I was returning from a Leafs-Wings game at MLG (the final year) and was grilled at the Lewiston-Queenston bridge. I was wearing my Sabres hat and driving a car with Virginia tags and US customs wasn't buying my story that I had just been to the Great White North to see the Leafs and visit the hockey HOF. He was asking me a number of questions and finally asked me if I were driving through to Virginia. I said, no, I was going to spend the night with my mom in Olean. That was the elixir, I was no longer a potential drug runner or terrorist, I was all right and he waved me through. So, I guess you are right. We must be salt-of-the-earth people.

We Torontonians tend to be completely oblivious to what the rest of the country thinks of us.

Oh wait... I get it.

Great story, no offense to your customs folks, they do what they're supposed to, but they're big-time douche bags at times. Thanks a lot Osama Bin Laden. I hope a giant squad is slowly digesting your corpse and turning you into the excrement you are.

Prior to 2001, they were jovial fellows with you Loyalists, assholes to us Yanks. I mentioned to a Canadian acquaintance how polite Canadian customs was vis-a-vis the American, and she pointed out that's because I was an American. Because of that, your guys knew that I wasn't trying to smuggle in $1,500 (Canadian or US, you pick) in clothes they just bought at the Niagara Outlet Mall. She said that if I were Canadian, I'd find the US guys friendly and the Canadians pricks.

Sep. 11 changed all that as you have found out. We're all terrorists here until proven otherwise.
