Paging New Yorkers
« on: June 11, 2019, 06:19:11 PM »

I had a random thought last night, I was curious as to how many New Yorkers were still fans of the Dodgers and Giants after they moved to California in the late 50s?  I would guess that the youngest of those fans would be born around 1950.  I wonder how many of them are still fans of the Dodgers or Giants or if a lot of New Yorkers feel betrayal because they moved to California.

I’m still a fan of the original NY Baseball Giants despite their move to SFO. Not gonna say the same for the original Brooklyn Dodgers, however.

Probably some, but a very tiny minority considering the massive fanbase the Yankees have.

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

There are still some to this very day, as it gets passed down through families, but it's very small.
