What team do you pull for? I was wondering what team has the most support here on the huddle. My guess is the Braves based on geographic proximity (my other guess is most ppl on the board don't care about major league baseball). I'm a huge Mets fan primarily b.c. I was born in NY (moved to NC when I was really young though) and I still have family there.

I never really understood the Braves phenomenon growing up because I hate ATL so much (i.e. Falcons).

So let's hear it.

I dunno.
Seems like we have a pretty even mix of Braves, Red Sox, Yankees, Phillies, and Cub fans.

A few Pirates and Mets fans too.

Did I miss any?

Well here's another question: If the Carolinas eventually got a MLB team, do you see yourself becoming an instant fan?

Or do you see there being a "bobcat" effect?

Hands down -- Instant Fan!

I became to luv the Red Sox by default for my hatred for the Yankees.

However -- I don't see us getting a team anytime soon unfortunately! :(

If the team is new, yes. If it's just moved, no.
