Moved to Oakland in '73. I Loved everything about the A's right from the start. Crazy uni's, crazy owner, mustaches and long hair (not allowed by most teams), and winners on the field. I endured the late 70's, I was there for BillyBall, the Bash Bros, and then... Moved out of the Bay Area in '91, but I've never wavered, I'm an A's fan for life- (probably NRAF unless I win the lottery) unless some owner pulls an Irsay or an Al Davis. That might tear it... Now, finally, after almost 20 years of only getting to see maybe 3-10 games per year, either when they made the playoffs or were playing the Red Sox, I can finally watch nearly every game, thanks to CSN!
