Being a Bay Area native, all I have known is sports mediocrity. I have been a Warriors, Giants, 49ers, Sharks, and Earthquakes fan for the longest time. Growing up, the Warriors were almost nonexistent. I still hurt thinking about the Giants losing 2002 and the inexplicable joy of watching them win in 2010. The 49ers had that miracle game against the Giants. The Sharks let me down and broke my heart year after year. The Quakes won 2 MLS Cups before moving. Marcus Thompson did a phenomenal job describing the origins and mindset of our beloved Warriors' franchise player.
