Neyer and Pierce Give it up...

Neyer and Pierce Give it up for the Angel Fans: Rob Neyer:

[T]he Angels ... ah, the Angels. I won't recap their sad history here, because various media outlets have done a fine job of that over the last couple of weeks. Suffice to say, the franchise has probably suffered more bad luck over the last four decades than any other two teams combined. And getting back to the emotional side of things, are there any fans that deserve a World Series more than Angels fans?
Tony Pierce:
let the dogs leap from the yachts in mccovey cove and scrounge the Old Navy splash hits deposited by the likes of anderson, glaus, salmon and kennedy. the angels have tried to turn their park into disneyland too, but the fans always have the last laugh and the fans know they're in orange county so they all dress alike and they're all white and they bang their plastic bangers and they buy their monkeys and crack open fortune cookies from panda express that say you will always have this moment so dig it.

these are two teams that i don't like very much and two ball parks that can burn for all i care, but i do love the fans and these two teams have fans that have waited a while for this, but the best fans this october, im surprised to say, are those in anaheim, and im happy their team will win.

This is one Mariner fan who sure hopes the Angels win it all. The Angels sure seem like a team of pretty good guys (i.e., no jerks, misfits, or malcontents). I absolutely don't want to see two of the biggest assholes in baseball (Kenny Lofton and Barry Bonds) get a ring.

Actually, I did respond over at Warblogger Watch and I informed Dr. Weevil. We had a bit of a debate and I was banned Weevil's site, or at least as banned as somebody who has five blogs and three websites that he can comment on can be banned...Doncha' just love the Internet?

Personally, on the payment thing: I wish that Paypal, or a competitor, would do the Amazon thing but offer automatic payments between 1 to 10 cents...
