I grew up in Canada as an expos fan. Most everyone else was Blue Jays fans, but for some reason, the expos were my team since I was about 5. Still upset of Steve Rogers being brought in as a reliever in 81... Still heartbroken over the 94 season. Pretty sad watching what was once a thriving team playing in front of a couple dozen fans, and being subject to the Puerto Rico years... I remember watching a bunch of games in French, or joined on cbc in the 7th inning after national news.
Moved to Richmond a year or two before the Nats came here, so almost feel like they followed me here.
Sort of the same thing with me, but I didn't grow up in Canada. Lived in Montreal for 1.5 years (one Expos season). I felt like they followed me here too when I moved to Maryland
that's great that you get to follow your favorite team locally!
