A's in '06

At the time of this writing, the Oakland Athletics are the only team currently with a spot in either League Championship Series. The humble, Beane-fed misfits of the East Bay put on a show at the Coliseum today, waxing the Minnesota Twins 8-3. Although this means I won't get to take Gentleman Farmer's wife to Game 4 of the ALDS, it does mean the A's have a chance to go to the World Series for the first time since 1990.

That would be amazing.

A's in '06, guys. And Frank Thomas for AL MVP.

HH -

Far be it for me to suggest that you may be a bandwagon fan, but when, exactly, was the last time you actually stepped foot in Oakland other than to see an A's game? The last time you dated a girl from Oakland? The last time you drove through Oakland with your doors unlocked? The last time you went to a fancy restaurant east of Yerba Buena Island but west of the Warren Freeway? The last time you had a leisurely Sunday morning stroll on the other side of the SF-OB Bridge?

I thought so.

Real fans are long-suffering fans.
