49 ReAsons it’s greAt to be An Athletics fAn Today, the A’s released a list of 49 reasons why it is HELLA cool to be an Athletics fan. I’m inclined to agree with them and I have reasons I could even add to their list. The team did a fun and thorough job with this list.

NO!   If you think boycotting games or discontinuing your season tickets is going to make a difference – then you’re WRONG! IT WILL NOT CHANGE A SINGLE THING!   […]

supreme court,
The Oakland A’s will NOT be moving to San Jose, thanks to the Supreme Court It’s a situation that has been talked about for the last 15 years, the idea that the Oakland Athletics will move to San Jose – or anywhere else for that matter. Moving the Oakland Athletics has been the subject of conversation since 2001. For some reason no one can seem to figure it out. Former MLB commissioner Bug Selig said he would have a plan in place by the time of his retirement in January 2015, and new commissioner Rob Manfred has said that he is […]
