Colorado Rockies: The 7 Things Rockies Fans Must Never Do
The Sixth Deadly Sin: Saying the Boston Red Sox are “your American League team.”
We get it. You’re one of those fans who believes you have to have more than one favorite team. Maybe you’re the person who liked Clemson and Alabama both all last football season. Maybe you cheer for the San Antonio Spurs and the Golden State Warriors … but that Cleveland Cavaliers team is pretty good too.
That’s fine. Cheer all you want, but don’t utter the names of the Colorado Rockies and Boston Red Sox in the same breath.
Yeah, we’re a little bitter about 2007, OK? We’re a little sore about how quick that whole World Series experience was over. Sure, it’s been a decade … but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten it.
Unless you’re from Boston, chowder oozes from your veins and there is no “ar” sound in any word you say, we simply can’t allow you to cheer for both the Red Sox and the Rockies. It’s just not allowed at 20th and Blake.
So can you have an “American League” team? We’ve consulted with our deadly sins panel and confirmed that you can indeed have a favorite American League team while also cheering for the Rockies. Just not the Red Sox. Sorry. No.
