I've played sports my entire life, having success mostly in swimming. Of all the sports I've played, I've enjoyed baseball the most. The history, fan experience, and ways to follow baseball are like no other sport. I've followed the Mariners since I was five, but In 2009, I felt sorry for the Orioles. I remembered back to that ill-fated 33-3 loss against the Rangers and decided to pickup another losing team. This is not a bandwagon move, mind you, as the team was losing games and fans. Like in Seattle, Baltimore fans tend to stick with their team for better or for worse, and I found another great team to rout for. Along with the Orioles and Mariners, I'm also a fan of the Minnesota Twins, Seattle Sounders FC, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Seattle Seahawks, Seattle Storm, Seattle Rein FC, and the Minnesota Timberwolves. I've written for a number of sites before including Bleacher Report and the now extinct Seattle Sports Nut.
