6. Your favorite player plays for a team outside your area.

Before I was a fan of MLB my Dad bought me the Rod Carew Batting Trainer, so Rod was my favorite player. I started following baseball in 78 so the Twins were my team, but I switched to the Angels when Carew was traded in 79. The Tigers are always a close second.

I became a Bucs fan when I started following the NFL. I was in Upper Michigan which is Packer Country, but my Dad was a Lions fan. All the kids at school were getting NFL Varsity Jackets, and I wanted one too, but I wasn't going to wear the Lions or Packers to school. (1979- They were the worst and 3rd worst teams in the NFL IIRC)

I wanted to be original and other kids I knew had the Dolphins, Rams, Cowboys, Steelers, Raiders, and Vikings, so I went with the Buccaneers. They were tough in 79. I've been a Bucs fan ever since.
