In Which I am Dwarfed by a Buster Posey Poster, on Boycotting Sports Organizations and What Giants Beat Writers Should be Saying

Me and my Buster Posey poster!

I won it (it’s limited edition, no less) in a Twitter giveaway from the Fresno Grizzlies, the Giants AAA affiliate.  It was really hard to get a good picture of me with the poster because from a lot of angles it dwarfed me.  In reality, he’s… ahem, a foot taller than me.  He might dwarf me in person too.  As y’all know, I’m not really a huge Posey fan- so this may or may not join my enormous Return of the King poster on my walls- but I have to admit this is a pretty nice lookin’ poster. 

I also learned today that my grandparents, White Sox fans, but longtime Dodger season-ticket holders have decided not to get season tickets for the 2011 season because they’re disgusted with the organization and feel they basically aren’t trying.  It’s essentially what I did during the World Series, switching allegiances because I was unhappy with the organization, although obviously the Giants were winning.  But I’m curious: have any of you ever boycotted a sports organization (literally, by not patronizing them or just by not rooting for them) because you were unhappy with the management?  Comment and let me know. 

Giants fans and writers seem to be going a little crazy waiting for Sabean to make, you know, at least one move and every Bay Area  beat writer wrote their 1,000th “Why We Need Huff and Uribe” article.  Time for a new line.  Like, “Why We Need Ryan Braun”.  Just an example.
