A's fan for as long as I can remember. I dressed as Billy Martin for Halloween in 1982 and went to my first game in 1984. My family has had season tickets since 1987 and I grew-up during the dynasty years of the late '80's/early 90's.

I lived through the agony of the '88 and '90 World Series; cried after Gibson's homer, mostly on account of Eckersley walking the previous batter, Mike Davis, on 4 pitches. In my memory, Eckersley had walked less than 10 batters the entire year and Davis was hitting around .200 for the season. I attended all 4 games of the Bay Bridge Series and have appreciated the fact that I can forever lord that sweep over all Giants fans.

My father's business had season tickets for the Giants and those tickets were always in high demand amongst his clients. For the life of me, I could never understand why anybody would support a losing organization like the Giants when they could easily support a winner that was housed 10 miles away.
