    Kim Ng is the odds on favorite to be the first female GM of the any (mens) professional sports team. Huge fan of Kim and so a huge fan of the Dodgers. Wonder why we become rabid fans of teams.

    When I was a little kid I stayed with an Aunt in Boston for a year and a half while my parents were overseas.

    She was a huge sports fan and never missed a home game - seasons tickets - Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots, Bruins, absolutely any sport going...

    She took me to my first professional baseball game at Fenway.

    By the time my parents got home, according to my father (huge Brooklyn Dodgers, and later Mets fan), the damage had been done...

    SF 49ers, SF Giants, CAl Bears...all because, clearly, God is on their side, and they are the bastions of truth, goodness and the American way.

    Or, because my dad took me to a 49er game when they played in Kezar Stadium...and the 49ers gave us a ride from 1981 through 1998 that was wonderful.

    The Giants have given me thrills through the years, and their new ballpark is amazing...

    ...and I got my BA, MA and PhD at Cal...and all those years of waiting have payed off.

    In baseball, the Blue Jays because I live in Toronto. Before they came along it was the Yankees. I am a third generation Yankee fan.

    The Yankmes?

    We are so sorry... were your parents abusive?

    Its ok. We are very accepting here, it is obviously not your fault, and must be a genetic thing.

    We don't descrimintae here because we realise it is a matter of nature and nurture and not simply a sick and twisted 'lifestyle choice'.

    We don't blame you. Unfortunately Westboro Baptist Church is holding on line 1 for you.

    In the meantime the rest of us will keep you in our prayers.

    To ITJock

    Red Sox fan I take it? I like the Red Sox (and the Cubs, I have a weakness for lovable losers), but the Yankees are in my blood. My grandfather caught a home run ball in the late 30's hit by Lou Gehrig and had it autographed by Joe DiMaggio. My sister ruined it when she was a kid (she hates sports).
