I am not a Seattle Mariners fan.
But I know a lot of good people who are M's rooters. And each year about this time I find myself thinking the same thing.
I wish these various friends, co-workers and blog commenters could experience having their team involved in a pennant race. They have waited a long time. They deserve it.
Is there a sports team you don't care about personally but almost root for because so many people in your life are long-suffering fans?
