I was a Montreal Expos fan from around 1978 until 2004, and we all know what happened there.
I moved to SF in late 2002 (after the Series), and decided to become a Giants fan when the Spos disappeared. For the first 5 years of my Giants fandom, I felt perfectly at home, since the Giants played about as well as the Expos had over the years. In 2010, I made the playoffs for the first time since Rick Monday wrecked my chance at the Series in 1981 (not to mention the 1994 disaster). After 28 years of futility, winning the whole thing was surreal, to say the least. If I'd known it'd be this easy, I woulda a tried the postseason every year!
