So... I turn on ESPN this morning only to find my worst nightmare realized - John Smoltz is close to signing with the BoSox. As a life long Braves fan, Smoltz has epitomized the team. My friends and I regularly have discussions regarding who we consider to be "true Braves". The likes of Dale Murphy, Tom Glavine, Glen Hubbard easily come to mind, but John Smoltz always tops the list.
Now in my early 30's, I can still vividly recall his posters on my wall during a time before high school, jobs, college, marriage and so on. It may seem petty, but it really is a sad day.
All that aside, what player from your team in any sport could you never imagine anywhere else? Who would almost seem alien in another uniform?
