If I didn't like baseball, I wouldn't have my username. Can't you tell which team I'm a fan of?

I'm a newly interested Baseball fan, where I am in the UK sport is all football and cricket and I guess I just kind of got sick of the constant news and focus on these sports and just chanced upon a baseball game on BT Sport and thought it looked fun, after learning the rules I'm enjoying watching games (I don't often watch live as the time difference means some games are live in the early hours of the morning).

Welp, baseball season is upon us, so I figured this was an appropriate topic. Do you love baseball as I do, or do you think as boring as say... golf? Or tiddly-winks? Do you even know what tiddly-winks are? Man I'm old.

Do you like baseball, but are unsure which MLB team to cheer for? Well, thankfully there's a flowchart to help you decide!
As a boy at the age of six ( in 1995 ) I went to see the recently est. Wisconsin Timber Rattlers ( often shortened to T-Rats ). They may not draw the big crowds the major leagues do ( they are a minor league team/Class A affiliate of the Brewers ) but the games are exciting. The last game I was at ( earlier this year ) was cold; a lot of the group I came with were ready to leave ( and some did ) but a few of us wound up chanting the names of tired and mentally defeated T-Rats saying we believed in them and were rewarded with a RBI winning the game at 6-5 against the Cedar Rapids Kernels. During the game the stadium staff had a small event set up between each inning and the best by far were the firing of the bratzooka ( basically a bratwurst cannon ) and the "more cowbell" gimmick where a popular song is played with the addition of cowbell sound effects which often times inspires dancing. It is also nice to see Fang at the games and I'm hoping to catch at least two more games before the season ends.

Yes. Like to watch the Rockies while talking to friends, eating and drinking. Too bad their business plan is to not win. In the end they always lose even when they start to win in the beginning of the season.

I say that because it seems if they have a good player and they are winning because of that good player, before the start of the new season, that player is traded. It's more profitable to have a losing team (for tax purposes) than to have a winning team. Hence my statement.

Btw, didn't get a chance to see your gif. Must have been cute!
