Fan Happiness Project Resolutions for April: Root passionately for no logical reason

I like Big Ern because he's The Human Drum Machine. I like Chris Denorfia because he's a clutchy gamer.

So I didn't get a bunch of resolutions out in March, but here's what I got for April. We should root passionately for no logical reason. What does logic get you? It gets you the heart of a robot. We are not robots though. We are Padres fans. If there's one thing we should be good at, it's rooting for a team without any clear understanding of why.

So let's embrace that, shall we?

Resolutions after the jump...

Here are my own resolutions. Feel free to make up your own:

  • Continue being a Padres Fan
  • Discuss the players without referencing true logic like on FanGraphs, Baseball Prospectus, etc
  • Appreciate the small sample size stuff ("At this pace, Cameron Maybin will hit 60 home runs!")
  • Pick a favorite player using the logic of a 6 year old ("I like him because his hair is brown and so is mine", "I like him because he’s fat/skinny/ugly/bald/hairy like my dad", "I like him because he does those commercials for Corky’s")
  • Pick another favorite player using the logic of a horny groupie ("Chiseled jaw", "Sexy butt", "Snuggly bear", "Super rich")
  • Root for your favorite player(s) like they’re your own children

This should be an easy month, right?
