Funny anecdote about how this stuff works. My best friend, also born and raised in the Bay, is a die-hard Cowboys fan. This is because he grew up in the 80's and his brother (a year older) was already a Niners fan. What else was he to do?
Red Sox...pretty much from birth. Grandfather was a Sox fan, dad was a Sox fan...not much choice really.
Detroit Tigers, 1976...the year of The Bird.
That's pretty much the way kids think though, isn't it? Not all kids, but it's a human-nature thing to want to be able to say "my team is better than your team."
Was a Vikings and SF Giants fan growing up in Seattle until 76/77 when we actually got teams. How could you not like Tarkenton and the People Eaters? Still have a soft spot for the childhood faves, but have mostly suffered crushing blow after crushing blow for 35 years. 1995 was nice, as was the Super Bowl run. Apart from those, yeesh.

Speaking of that, and the Cubs, how 'BOUT that Travis Wood, huh bbc? Say what you will about the Cubs, but their pitchers have 4 home runs this year. Wood has a 141 OPS+.
