What baseball team you root for, no matter how much you try to deny it, is a choice that at some point in your life you made.
Baseball teams are like wives/husbands. You can spend nearly your entire life together, but ultimately if all they do is make you miserable you should probably find a new one.
If I could have flipped a switch to stop liking the Sox and start liking a different team, I would have done it a long time ago. If it were that easy we would all be Yankee and Laker fans.
