Re: How did you become a fan of the teams you are a fan of?
My dad was a huge fan of the old Browns team. When they returned in '99, he was a supporter, come rain or shine (and there was a lot of rain). He and I actually went to a preseason game when I was a kid. I suppose I inherited my fandom from him.
Moral of the story: no one CHOOSES to be a Browns fan. They get chosen.
Actually, my family was more into the Indians when I was growing up. Dad and I went to numerous games in the '90s when Hershiser, Thome, Lofton and Vizquel (<-- who was my favorite baseball player as a kid) we kicking ass and the team consistently made post-season appearances. I only occasionally root for the Tribe now.
