Personally I've always enjoyed the rivalry and even the close finishes - even though I've been close to heart-attacks.
The "spirited" exchanges between AN and HH used to be fun.
However, this year it seems that ethics and good manners have disappeared completely - and I don't mean from AN...
Try reading this from the front page of HH today:
Regardless of the 4,000 split personality chumps who make up the fan base of the Athletics, let's get something straight here.:
- The Angels are winding up the most successful rebuilding year in American League history.
- The A's have won impressively, but shot their wad at the MLB casino betting that Milton Bradley and Frankenhurt would stay healthy in 2006, and in a few days we will all be congratulating Billy Beane on this dramatic gamble paying off. They may go all the way or Frank Thomas may be nice to his neighbors in Vegas and swing and miss in the ALDS on purpose.
- 2007: Frank will be a distant memory, the Angels will actually field a major league team and Andre Ethier challenges for a National League batting title as the Athletics farm system is revealed to be as bare as Old Mother Hubbard's cupboard.
Besides the fact that I assume we all disagree with most of this (ex. Ethier), I don't think we would EVER see something like this from guys like Blez, BBG, Nico (heh... sorry BBG)
I do not dislike the Angels team (much), but this year I really don't like the Angels webbased fanbase. Just because of this, I would love to see a team like Seattle beat the shit out of the Angels next year!
Maybe I should just stop visiting HH?
Does people here agree??
