One Sad Map

Notice the small print in the righthand corner (click to enlarge): “There are no counties where a plurality of fans like the New York Mets, Toronto Blue Jays, or Oakland Athletics.” This grieves me given that I’m an A’s fan. I guess this is akin to most people’s affection for things like diet sodas and Country Music. What is interesting, based on this map, is that the Yankees are really America’s team. My father-in-law was always a Yankees fan. I never understood this considering he lived an hour or so from the capital of the confederacy. Clearly, Virginians in his part of the state have an affection for the Bronx Bombers.
