So, this came up in the baseball thread when the talk briefly turned to our resident racist bandwagoneer sabremike. Obviously being a fan of 31 MLB teams like he is is too many, and just as obviously, the ideal number of teams to support in a given professional sport is one, but when is a second team valid, and under what circumstances? Full disclosure, I do have one of these myself. I grew up in Chicago, blocks from Wrigley, so I grew up a Cubs fan. This of course explains my bitter and depressive nature. Later in life, living in the Bay Area, I lucked-slash-conned my way to a bunch of free A's tickets at the start of the Mulder/Hudson/Zito era, and adopted Oakland as my "2nd team". Notably, this is the only California team I adopted. Otherwise my loyalties remain with Chicago (Bears/Bulls/Blackhawks.) What say ye? Never ok? Ok under limited circumstances? Or are you one of those "why does it matter? It's just sports" types that misses the point entirely
