Go Rays!

Just a quick, belated post to celebrate the Tampa Bay Rays winning the American East League Championship.  My obsessive baseball fan days are over (actually I was a Dodgers fan during that time period, many, many years ago), but I'm so glad to see the Rays doing well.  I remember the day it was announced that the Tampa Bay area would finally get its own baseball team.  There had been many unsuccessful attempts to either bring an existing team to the area or start a new franchise.  And there was even some underhanded scheming to prevent Tampa from having its own team.  Once a team was in place, there were many dark years.  However, during these last few years they've certainly pulled out of the slump and are doing the Tampa Bay area proud.  Go Rays!

Are we talking the Fernando/ Garvey years? That's when my family had season tickets.

Yes!!! You were one lucky girl. I was the only one in my family who liked baseball, so I never actually got to go to the games. :( But I watched every single one I could - was even able to pick up a San Diego TV station to watch home games when they played the Padres.
