10 Reasons why the A's are better then the Giants

Postby GSes » Thu Jun 24, 2004 9:06 pm

Today I recieved an EMAIL from the Oakland A's informing me tickets were still available, I guess Im on there tickets mailing list thing for ordering them off the website and I know lots of you probably got this email, but I wanted to share it b/c I think its hilarious and it will piss off all Giant fans like EFTDA :-D :-D :-D

They said tickets were still available and then the email ended with this list

10 reasons it's better to be an A's fan than a Giants fan:

10. 0 Splash Hits, 4 World Titles

9. The A's have hit for more cycles at SBC Park then
the Giants

8. A's fans actually cheer at the games

7. We're on the sunny side of the bay

6. Affordable Ticket Prices

5. Cy Young Awards: A's 5, Giants 1

4. Our best hitter actually gets to swing the bat

3. We're the only team to bring a World Series Title to
the Bay

2. A's fans can name more then 1 player on the team

1. 1989 World Champs



#4 is my personal favorite lol

Somebody could actually come up with 10 reasons the Mets are better than the Yanks? If you have it post it. I'd like to see how bad it is.

I guess it would suck if you were a Giants fan buying tickets for a game in Oakland and you got that e-mail. :-)

i like the A's better cos they have two absolutely awesome SP's compared to Giants one. :-D

Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

The A's fifth starter, Redman or Harden (however you want to look at it), is better than any Giants starter not named Schmidt.

Guess we'll see who's better in the upcoming series. My guess is the Giants continue winning and the A's continue falling further out of first.
