  • Help, I think am becoming a Nationals Fan

    I have been monogamous to the Cubs for 46 years. I moved to DC when I was 11, and have only been a Cubs fan. As a Nationals season ticket holder, I now have another lovable loser in my life. July 21, 22, 23 is the grand re-opening of RFK, and there will be a lot of hoopla. The Cubbies are in town. The sole reason for me to be own Nats tickets. I will certainly be wearing my Cubs 1908 World Champions hat, but I usually wear a Nats shirt. I only have about 10 cubs shirts to chose from, but the Nats shirt, and Cubs hat combo is calling me.

    The similarities between the two teams increase every day--our managers, our records.

    At the end of the day, I will always be among the Cub faithful, but at least I have a local home team now.

    Which shirt do I wear?

      I want an avatar that alternates between the Cus and Nats, but I don't know how to do it.

          Look it's always great to have a second team that you root for, especially when you're a Cubs fan and the Cubs are usually out of contention by July. Personally, I've recently adopted the Mariners as my second team (with Oakland, SD, Dbacks and ChiSox still keeping my interest) but under no circumstance would I bail out on the Cubs despite their record or chance on making the playoffs. That's been my team since childhood and no amount of losing is going to change that. I understand the frustration, but any "fan" who even thinks of adopting the secondary team as their new favorite team had a flawed relationship from the get-go.

            Yeah, I've found it's good to have a secondary team.

            In '99, I became a Red Sox supporter, mostly because I had Pedro, Nomar, and Varitek on my fantasy team that year, and of course the Cubs were gawd-awful that year. Since then, I've become a bigger Red Sox fan, especially after they kicked some Cardinal tail in the WS, cause I love to see the Cards lose.

            Oddly enough, I never bought a Sosa jersey, even during his best years.

              Nats and Cubs have a lot in common. A lot of bad trades, underperforming players, 2nd half collapses, playoff collapses, ownership issues, etc.
              The Q: Can the Cubs hold a 6-5 lead with 2 outs and nobody on in the 9th?

              The A: No

              ***********My Rant on Bud Selig***********
              Selig is like a stray pigeon. Pigeons are too self-absorbed to care about anyone else. They poo on people they don't like; they poo on people they don't even know. The only real difference between Selig and a pigeon is that Selig intends to bury our heritage, our traditions, and our culture,

                I would go for the Nats shirt, Cubs hat combo.

                Best of both worlds. (although people are going to think your having an idenity crisis )

                  While i think its good to have a second team ( i do, the Pirates) i'm a bit old fashioned and think that you should stick with the team you 1st chose. Thats why i think you should wear the cubs shirt
                  Don't blame us if we ever doubt you,
                  You know we couldn't live without you
                  Red Sox, you are the only only only!

                    Which shirt do I wear?
                    I actually broke down and bought a MLB cap last year, "Sox". I bought the cheapest I could find and its the only MLB piece of clothing I own. That's how much I like paying %10,000 markup on clothing sewn for pennies by foreign kids chained to tables in sweatshops.

                    What a scam MLB is Sticking it to the fans every chance they get.

                    If you knew how much that $120 jersey actually cost to be made the wearing of "which one" would be the last question we'd ask ourselves.

                      I believe you stay with the team you first pick...win (although I haven't see much of those in awhile either)...lose (many many of those)...or well...lose...

                      I live in DC and had a short crisis for a minute when the Nats came to town. But I'll always bleed black and orange.

                        Always go with the team that gave you your way. I could move to Boston, not see a Cubs game for 10 years but if they came to town I deffinently would wear Cubs. However, I dont have this problem because I will always wear Cubs. Moving would'nt change that.
