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.

Strangely, even though I like the Braves growing up in this area I have actually been a Cardnials fan since the late 70's.
Growing up my fav players were Rod Carew, Rose, Robin Yount, Brett(dude was that good)
When I coached 14-15 yrs olds I even wanted our uniforms like the Cards but ended up looking like the Royals.
My brother and I are both huge fans. I saw them play in St.Louis in old Busch and my brother got to see them in the new one.
