Being a baseball fan, and being use to rooting for my team during the September Push/Playoffs, I feel a little depressed that we have all this negativity surrounding our team. So I think we, as a community, should adopt a team to root for the next 6 weeks.
I am not suggesting we should become long term fans of this team, we are and will always be Padres fans, but for the sake of rooting for baseball we pick a team, root for them until they are out of the playoffs or win it all, then focus back on our Padres. I also think we should do this together, on a united front.
So I would like people to pitch what team we should root for over the next week.
My pitch is for the Rays. They have always been terrible, they play in division with two teams I despise. They have never employed Roger Clemens. Plus if we adopt them, we will DOUBLE the amount of current fans they have.
