As a Red Sox fan by birth, I'm sworn to hate the Yankees, and the Mets bring back bad memories of the 1986 World Series. I like the Giants, who used to be from New York. In fairness to Stan and the thread, I'm going to refrain from either picking between the Yankees and Mets or going off-grid to pick another team, so I'll repeat Stan's options.

New Your Mets or New York Yankees?

Same here....life long Sox fan!!

Okay, since someone has to answer this, I will.

Yankees (I immediately am ducking for cover.) I don't know why, because it apparently happened before I moved to St. Louis, but here in Cardinal Nation the Mets are viewed as "pond scum". Also, Joe Girardi was a catcher with the Cubs and I am a die-hard Cubs fan and former Chicagoan - and Joe lived not too far from us and shopped in the same grocery store that my mother did.

Cubs or White Sox?

Cubs. While, as a Red Sox fan, I hate the term "loveable losers," I do empathize with the feeling among Cubs fans that the Cubs can't win a championship because the team is cursed. Also, although I grew up as a Red Sox fan, I prefer National League baseball, and for a while the Cubs were managed by Dusty Baker, whom I liked when he managed the Giants. Finally, the White Sox have the plainest and least interesting of the new generation of baseball parks.

L.A Dodgers or L.A. Angels of Anaheim?

Yes, I left it for you to repay you for your Cubs vote.

Broncos (Peyton Manning makes funny commercials.)

I guess on the positive side of neutral, but just barely, so "yes".

Where do you prefer to sit: infield seats or outfield seats?

Yes, you are very good!

American (Swiss reminds me of the Swiss cheese theory of adverse outcomes, and I don't like thinking about that early on a Saturday morning.)

Regular or non-fat?
