For the record, my uncle took me to Yankee stadium growing up and just the pure love that Yankee fans have for their team was incredible to me and consequently it impressed upon me an indelible love of the Yanks. After all, Kentucky lacks a major league team of any kind so it's kind of like UK basketball, and then whatever else you like lol.
That does not make it better. Unless you've been to all 30 stadiums I don't think you have a proper sample size haha. Come to Oakland and I'll show you some passion!
Anyway, I can assure you that the A's will not fade into oblivion as half of our team is on the DL and come August we'll be the healthy old team everyone loves or the young team that's fresh from the farm that everyone loves
