It's all about the beards.

Ha ha, the Marlins. It was cute. Looks like another year of punishment for them. Sweeping the lowly Mets and Fish? Losing 2 of 3 to the Barves? Hopefully not a preview of what I feared, pummeling crap teams, losing to good teams.

Just a couple series in and 2 sweeps is great regardless of teams.

Heard Zim broke his thumb.  Out 4-6 weeks.  Bummer.

But he does have time to think about his throws.

Not really mad at Rendon getting [probably] every day at 3rd. I am looking forward to Nats letting their frustrations out on the Marlins over this series. Big one heading into the series against the Cards and Angels. We looked down right comedic out there yesterday against the Barves. I had to turn it off.... to watch the Caps get shut out in their finale. smh.

At least we have the Wizards?

I appreciate you putting Anaheim in the same conversation as the Cards, but the Angels are barely a .500 team and we really won't know much about the true grit of this team until after this three game set against Oakland.

You all should buy tickets to the Anaheim series however, just to see Mike Trout play.  Some O's fans ignored me last year and all he did was make that catch in front of the Southwest Airlines sign that I'm sure you've all seen.

I meant more so because the Marlins are terrible and it's big heading into non NL East series'. I hate every team in our division. So much.

I think you should take the A's or the Rays.  I'd prefer it be the Rays, mind you, but the A's deserve better than what they've been getting too.

Oh cool, I didn't realize you were a professional baseball player! I learn something new everyday!

(joke by the way, if you could not tell.  I just find it funny when fans speak like they are part of the team)

But a related question, do you sports fans also refer to bands in a similar manner?  As in, "I went to see the Arcade Fire last night and we really rocked the house!"

If it makes you feel better, this is a pet peeve of mine as well. It's funny that people who probably make regular dough sometimes act as if they are part of a sports team whose members make millions of dollars for playing a childs game.

This is something of a pet peeve of mine as well, although I do catch myself doing it from time to time. Side question: does it feel more acceptable to you guys if someone does it about a college team and they're an alumni of that college? I love my Red Wings and my Wolverines, but it feels less cringe worthy if I referred to a Michigan team as we as opposed to the Red Wings or The Tigers. Thoughts?

I graduated from college 24 years ago, I stopped referring to anything pertaining to the college as "we" when I graduated.

Does SUNY-Fredonia even have sports teams?
