Wait, he stopped being a Yankees fan at some point last year? ;-7

Clearly I'm missing something here. Is there a significance to the paper bag other than "Hey, look at me with a paper bag on my head"?

You need to draw glasses and a goatee on the bag to make you look extra "special".

You seem to be an even bigger turncoat then I am :-D :-b ;-) ;-7

Yah. It's saying, "My team is so bad I don't want anyone to know that I'm a fan."

I think it was first popularized in Philadelphia, but am not sure on that one.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Exactly its a politcal protest of Dan O'Dowd and his lack of being a good GM.

Its to say "dear rockies you guys are sucking stop sucking" while still showing that I will show up to the games

You know, I read that as "Sox/Marlins", which is what confused me... :*)

Yes yes he was.

He made 0 moves. You can't say that the rox's miracle run had anything to do with O'Dowd. He's awful. We have a good Minor League system but we are afraid of A: signing people B: trading people. Which means we use our minor league system (10 ML Ready Of's between Majors and minors) as our only source of talent.

Who do you think drafts those minor leaguers, and put together the team that went on that run last year?

I brought a paperbag for your mom to wear when I swung by your house awhile ago. I'm not the one needing a paperbag :-D

I know, I know, there goes the perfect friendly meter.
