Hey all. I'm new to posting here but have been reading for about a year now. I have learned alot from everyone's entertaining, intelligent and entertaining posts. So now I'd like to ask if anyone has any advice on now being an active member of the website. And can someone tell me what DLD and GOG stand for? Thanks for your help! Now I'd like to post a survey that was a FanPost awhile back so ANers can get to know me a bit and just because they are questions I'd like to answer :)
How you became a fan: I got a call from my uncle asking if I wanted to go to an A's game. I said yes even though I didnt have the slighest interest in baseball. It took only that game for me to instantly fall in love with Oakland and then baseball as a whole.
Favorite A's game memory: The perfect game but as far as being there it has to be May 8th when I took my 6 year old niece and she now writes A's all over her homework and walks around saying " I'm going to marry Andrew Bailey" :)
Most heartbreaking A's experience: I haven't been around long enough for a true heartbreak but I think that last 4 game series with the Evil Empire was very disheartening on a season I didn't believe was over yet.
Greatest all time A: Rickey
Last game/stadium: September 8th/Coli
Best part of being an A's fan: Everything. From the players, to the fans (bleachers!) to the manager (just kidding!! and a community like this. I love everything about being an A's fan
Hopefully my first fanpost isnt a total bust :)
