D-Rave you can't cheer for the Nats because you were a O's fan first and you can not be a fan of Tupac becasue he died when you were only ten.

Come on get with the game!

I actually like the Ravens the team; their fans make me want to invite Cowboy fans over for drinks.

Plus as soon as the Ravens slip and the Skins exceed out comes all their old gear. Of late I have been getting lots of "beeps" about my licenses plate (MD Skins one) and folks yelling "go RGIII" and positive stuff. I live in the heart of Ravens country and it is like they are just back pocketing the Skins in case we blow up with RGIII.

Sometimes I feel like that. Because the O's and the Nats are within 45 minutes of each other it has to be either or. And if it came down to choosing, I'd honestly choose the Nats just because.. Hell, their stadium is like 15 minutes from my house. Haha.

But when it comes down to choosing, it's actually really hard because I've had positive experiences with Orioles fans and Nats fans so. I don't like making that decision.

I haven't been to a Nats game yet though. I hear their games are pretty fun.

Here is what I do. I was born in DC in 73. I live there until I was 6; my dad became a Skins fan thus my fan hood for the team. We moved back "home" to RI where I became a Celtics, Bruins, and Red Sox fan but I still loved my Skins and never cheered for the Pats.

Now I live in the B-more area. I cheer Skins, Bruins, Celtics, and Sox but I have no problem pulling for the Nats, O's and Caps; it actually gives me more viewing options at night. I will cheer for Nats O's and Caps but it has none of the passion that I have for my first loves. I even yelled "F_ck you Caps!" last night after Chara's goal. Nor will you catch me with any Nats, O's or Caps gear.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

I'm terribly confused. I'd venture a guess that literally 99% of this board's membership isn't young enough to have ever been able to "follow DC baseball" since there wasn't any. So I still don't understand who exactly is allowed to be a Nationals fan. People old enough to remember the Senators and kids born after the Nats came to town?

Edit: young = old.

Valid question. I was a Braves fan because i started playing and enjoying baseball in the early 90's. I live in Northern Virginia and had never been to Baltimore and didnt know anyone that lived in Baltimore. So i felt like i could just pick a team. However, being a home town fan in all the other sports, when the Nationals came back to D.C. i broke ties with the Braves, threw away all of the Atlanta apparel. And started watching and attending Nationals games.

I guess a baseball sports fan, i felt homeless until they came back.

Nope. In fact, Washington Redskins fans aren't real fans, since they weren't fans of the Redskins when they were in Boston. We're all posers. The only people that can really claim themselves as Redskins fans are fans of the team when it was still in Boston.

Yeah. Also, NE fans should really support the Redskins.

Posers.

If you read my story a few post back, I almost qualify to be a Skins fan!

They make no money on ticket sales! With the senior discounts and kids under 3 getting in free.

Basically old farts and those that come after our generation dies out. But wait, what if I were an O's fan living in DC...can I raise I raise my kid as a Os fan or do I have an obligation to make him support the Nats? What would make him a better and more "correct" fan? Or does a family have to be indifferent to the Os and baseball for the child to be an acceptable Nats fan? Would the child now be a poser mudblood, supporting a sport his family has no right to? When can the lineage rightly begin?

Do tell. I couldnt watch my child go through the message board struggles I have faced. I just couldn't.

You are screwed. Just by existing in your own right the way the chips fell meant you and your family are doomed to a life of never being allowed to truely root for one team. Seeing as how real Baltimorians won't accept you into their fanbase because of your DC residency, the tr00 Nats fans will never accept the child into their fanbase because his lineage wasn't of a tr00 Nats fan.

@mredskins: <buzzer noise> NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Unless you were born before 1937 and were a fan of the Boston Braves/Redskins, you are not a tr00 fan of the Redskins.
