raised a Met fan in upstate New York. Moved to the midwest for graduate school and became a Royals fan. After a brief sojourn in Florida for a post-doc (where I was subjected to non-stop Braves coverage) I moved back here and have continued my love/hate relationship with the Royals. My daughters are also big fans (especially of Greinke).
