I follow my team the Rangers a little, mainly looking at their standings position and box scores. Other than that BBA consumes most of my baseball interest, as does my fandom of the Lakers and the Saints.
Um, did you just say the Saints??
Where is that "Friend or Foe" button that I came across yesterday....It's time to add my first Foe lol.

I used to follow the Tigers a lot. Even went to multiple Fantasy Camps. But for some reason the last few years it has gone away from me. I couldn't even tell you who most Tigers are these days.

I'm much more into auto racing, like IndyCar and F1.

I follow it, but I follow it from a greater distance than I used to.

I've watched some innings the past couple days and I am not a fan of the super-imposed "strike zone" they've got blocking the catcher. And there's no option to remove it.

I have watched 0.0% the last few years. Haven't been to a game in about 5 years and that was a business gathering at Wrigley Field. Haven't paid for a ticket in like 15 years.

I go to Opening Day every year and follow as close I can to the Orioles. Listen if I have the chance. I don't have cable so don't watch too many games on TV these days. I have already been to 2 games and will be going to at least 2 more by the end of May. Definitely don't know around the league like I used to.

As an unfortunate Pirates fan I don’t follow MLB and I don’t even really follow them all that much anymore. The “financial discrepancy” between the have and have nots has made me almost lose interest in baseball and Bob Nutting has really done the same for my Pirates fandom.

I used to watch other teams games on television, but the 3 outcome at bats I find boring. I wasn’t a Braves fan, but used to watch Maddux and Glavine pitch a lot on TBS when they carried the Braves.
