"Let’s say you were born into a family of hardcore Giants fans.You had no personal choice in the matter. You are and always will be a Giants fan until the day you die – you know you might as well never go home if you change the team you cheer for. In fact, you have a Giants logo birthmark on your forehead (“It’s in your blood!” your parents say proudly each time), and you do not plan to surgically remove it.

You grow up to be a handsome, confident man with various passions in life. One day a cool girl (we’ll call her Lindsay) hits on you at a bar. After dating her for a few weeks, you meet her friends for the first time. Y’all are having a good time, when your gal excuses herself to the restroom. One of her friends, who is a bit too drunk, then smirks to the group, “You know, this is just like Lindsay to go out with another Giants fan.” The others quickly shoot this friend dirty looks. You laugh awkwardly and ask, “What do you mean by that?” The friend scoffs, “Oh, don’t tell me you didn’t notice! All of her ex-boyfriends are Giants fans! She moved to SF because there are so many of you here.” You’re trying to process this info when Lindsay returns, and a new conversation topic starts, thankfully.  Later that week, you’re still thinking about what her friend said. Details that seemed insignificant before begin to leap out at you now: Why does Lindsay already claim to be completely in love with you when she doesn’t even know what you do at your job? How come she never asked you about your hobbies? When you two passed by a group of LA Dodgers fans on the street, didn’t she start a random rant on how they are the worst and said that you are “so much classier and just manlier,” when she knows you have many friends who sport the blue and white? Also, she did ask if you have any single cute Giants fan homies or cousins for her friends to go on a baseball date with.

The question that keeps lingering in your mind and unsettling your stomach is this: Does she really like me for who I am, or does she just have a Giants fan fetish?”
