baseball. i grew up loving baseball, playing it, collecting cards and going to games. when i got older i strayed away from it. i still loved it but it wasnt a huge part of my life anymore. when we moved back to the bay area 7 years ago, i became a fan again and no, not a giants fan. to be more specific, an A's fan. we have been listening to the games for 7 years, yes listening, there is nothing sweeter then listening to the game over the radio, really. Try it, you might like it.
this year was a turning point for me. anyone who has watched the team this year knows, can feel it. this team is what baseball was made for. they know the game, love the game and it shows. this was the year that baseball touched my heart and i can say for the first time truly, that baseball is one of the greatest sports. i have never been so proud of a group of guys before. they played with so much heart and soul, brought laughter to the stadium and not to mention a dance AND a song. they brought people together and made people proud to be A's fans. this team, for those who dont know, is basically made up of rookies and players who were put in positions new to them and they excelled, they kicked ass. they were the the underdogs of this game and even though they didnt win the world series, they made this game exciting and made what baseball truly is about. thank you A's for the most wonderful season i have ever had the pleasure of being a part of.
