If you're a REAL Pittsburgh fan, IMO you support ALL THREE franchises, whether they win or lose.

Sorry, had to express my feelings there. Again, not accusing you of being fair weather.
I always follow the Pirates until they are out of contention... and then, switch over to rooting for the Padres (I loved Tony Gwynn).

My brother says that that is akin to rooting for a chihuahua... and then a dachshund in a dog fight... (against pit bulls & mastiffs).

Anyway, after those two teams are out, I stop watching baseball... which, alas, is usually by mid-May.
