    Tammy:

    Since I lived out in AZ the Diamondbacks are on my list, as are the Cardinals, for teams I am considering rooting for.

    The other options are the Orioles, as I already attended one of their games, against the mariners, I think (but I can't remember). So I think it would be reasonable to choose the Orioles.

    But I have lived in Philly too, so I could pick one or more of those teams too.

    Cleveland and Cincy are close, so those are the most convenient options.

    But picking the AZ Cardinals could mean I could travel to AZ for a game during the cold OH autumn. haha

    In a sense, sure. It'd be tough for me to really buy into the whole thing. So it'll probably just be an interesting year, from which I will emerge with some amusing stories. haha

    This reminds me of my years of fascination with Diana, Princess of Wales. It was more The Cult of Diana that was interesting than she herself, a not too smart but an incredibly media-savvy person.

    I think he means football Cardinals. Of course, baseball Cardinals WOULD be the correct choice.

    Playing sports might be another lifestyle experiment altogether. Time is short.

    The good thing about basketball is you can go to pickup games at your local park whenever you have time, no commitment required.

    Do major league baseball stadiums have sections in the bleachers for home team and visiting team? Like, are they separate? Anyone know?
