If the BoSox disappeared...I would root for the Royals or Tigers, just so I can continue my love of futility.

I'd no longer follow baseball. In fact, I would most likely no longer actively follow any professional sports at all because it would never be the same.

But I would still root against the Red Sox and Cubs :-D

If the unthinkable happened and the Red Sox ceased to exist I would become full time fans of the Cubs and Rangers. Always had a soft spot for the Cubs for probably the same reasons Cubs fans seem to root for the Red Sox-mutual misery that only we can understand. The Rangers are in probably my favorite city in the world and on my treks to Austin to relax during summers I've seen quite a few games and found myself checking up them fairly regularly. Of course when they play the Sox I wish nothing but ill will against them but that's the way it goes.

Hm...

If the Mets ever disappeared, I'd probably become a fan of:

A's
Cubs
Sox
Devil Rays

Yup, If I lost my #1 team, I'd be a fan-by-committee. :D
