I root against the monkey, because of all the disparaging things Angels fans say about Mo.

I root for the halos. I root against Barry.

I root for the Giants. I root for Barry. but if the Angels win, I won't be upset..but every time they mention that friggin' monkey or show that kid behind home plate in the monkey suit, I swear I could commit simiancide...

Huh? Why would Braves fans root for the Giants! Go halos! And the rally monkey is no more annoying than homer hankies, the tomahawk chop (even though I'm a Braves fan), and the incessant playing of "We are Family" back in the day.

I laugh through the pain. Go Halos!

Nothing is more annoying than the tomahawk chop, be it in Atlanta, Cleveland, or Tallahassee. That said, go Angels. I like underdogs.

They beat the Yankees. How can you not root for them?

Let's see...I'm a Yankees fan first (grew up in NY), so by this, I root for the Giants. I'm an A's fan second (live in Oakland), but this says the Angels because "Cross-bay rivals must be stopped". I'm a Giants fan third (love Pac Bell Park, high respect for Dusty and the whole organization); of course that means root for SF. My call: Giants in five, celebration in SF causes another earthquake. Total Tally of Prospectus: Angels: 15 Giants: 11 Death: 1 (Marlins fans) Whoever: 1 (Expos fans)

Yeah, I'm rooting for whoever, I guess...
