Just wanted to say hi to everyone. I am a die hard Florida Marlins fan that is currently suffering the indignity of living in Ohio. I was born and raised in Ft Lauderdale, and I attended the Marlin's first game in 1993. I was a student at BCC North campus at the time, and the sky was blue, the birds were chirping, and all of my professors had cancelled class that day so they could attend the game. My buddy and I decided to basically empty out our bank accounts and hope that we could find a scalper that wouldn't give us too much of an anal raping. We did, although we sat so far back the birds said we were invading their personal space. I moved to Ohio about 10 years ago for work and have suffered between here and Memphis, Tn ever since. You might know me as the only guy in the Florida Marlins hat and jersey every time they come to town to play the Reds, although from time to time I have noticed more and more of us. Anyways, I just wanted to say hi and maybe posting on this board will make me feel a little closer to home, where my heart has never truly left.
