Too many questions to answer, but I will bullet point it:

Best game hands down I was at the Big A when Adam Kennedy almost brought the place down by dropping bombs.

Favorite player is one Wallace Keith Joyner, followed closely by Big Daddy Vladdy.

Worst moment ever is a tie betts even Donnie More and that mess of a game in Seattle.

And my favorite Angels' jersey is the periwinkle blue.
