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!

A Fan Of...

  • NFL San Francisco 49ers

  • NHL San Jose Sharks

Arbitrary end-points are arbitrary, even though all of August is post-Cespedes.

That's not this thread is my point. No one up til this point in this thread wanted to talk about what went wrong in the game.

Yeah, see, I don't have the answer. I would think somebody would. No one's even asking. They just want to flush Shark right down along with Hammel.
