Teams ML31 Hates
Los Angeles Dodgers
Why I Hate Them: They're the Dodgers! What more needs to be said?
Players I Hate: None added yet...
New York Yankees
Why I Hate Them: It's easy to hate the Yankees. The only time I would pull for them is if they were playing the Dodgers in the World Series. But that's it.
Players I Hate: None added yet...
Calgary Flames
Why I Hate Them: Yes, the Sharks have beaten them a couple of times in the playoffs. But they knocked them out of the Conference finals and have generally made life difficult for the Sharks
Players I Hate: None added yet...
Dallas Stars
Why I Hate Them: First, they NEVER should have moved from The Cities. But that is more their former owner's fault. Apart from that, I just don't care for the team or the way they went about building it. I have no great love for the Metroplex either. (My ex wife is from that area)
Players I Hate: None added yet...
Boston Red Sox
Why I Hate Them: I have found that in general, the Red Sox have the most obnoxious and annoying fans in all of sport. And then they have a payroll 2nd only to the hated Yankees and you get a formula for abhorring the team.
Players I Hate: None added yet...
Anaheim Ducks
Why I Hate Them: I hate them because they are younger than the Sharks and managed to win the first Cup in California. That was supposed to be the SHARKS!!!!!!
