My name is Mark, born in 57, moved to OC in 62. Went to my first game September 5th, 1966. Been a fan ever since. I picked Enberg as my handle, since I grew up listening to him every night on the radio. One of the best memories I'll ever have!

I realized what a great announcer Enberg was, right after he moved on from the Halos in the late 70's and the Halos rolled out Bob Starr...Enough said!

Best memory, 86 play-offs. Game 5. Father was tied into the city of Anaheim and we were guest in the City of Anaheims booth right next to the press box. Heart broken, but still the most emotional game i have ever watched! F*cking DeCinces!

My name is Shohei Ohtani, and I am from Oshu, Japan. I recently signed with the Angels and wanted to introduce myself to the true fans.

But in all seriousness, my name is Casey and I'm a 15-year-old from Indiana. I've grown up a Red Sox fan among Reds fans, and I became an Angels fan around 2013 (Seems a little weird since that's when the Sox last won the WS).

New to this forum, and I'm not sure why it took me so long to join an Angels message board!

I've been attending 20+ Angel home games every year for 30+ yrs and watch every game religiously.

It's been such an amazing off-season and it's surrounded the team with an optimism we haven't seen in awhile.  Eppler's done a fantastic job of making this team competitive around Trout, and he did so without depleting what's been a pretty thin farm system the last few years.  And I mention Trout specifically, because Eppler needs to do everything in his power to resign Trout and make sure he retires as an Angel.  He's a once in a generation talent and I'd hate to see him in anything but Halo Red.  So, Eppler needs to build a team to compete now, but without sacrificing the future, and I think he's done a fantastic job so far.

Looking forward to interacting with some fellow Angel fans!

Seinfeld fan. Angel fan. Been lurking around here for a while, but just now decided to make an account. I also used to post on the Angels mlb board - not sure if anyone else jumped here after it got shut down.

I feel like 99% of the posters who introduce themselves in here make like 2-3 posts then disappear forever. I think they get scared off.

I blame Lou.

I'll likely keep reading, with minimal posting, but we'll see.

Hi,

My name is Bill and I'm brand new to this forum.  I've been an Angels fan my entire life.  My grandmother's sister worked at the Big A in the early seventies to the late nineties in one of the concession stands and she regularly brought all of us to games.  Her husband also used to be responsible for releasing doves during some of the games (he did the same thing at Disneyland).  Very happy to be here and thanks for having me.  My son and wife got luck below for a Trout selfie...

 

Can't wait for this season!

Announcing a name change for a long-time member.  I've been "HaloFromVegas" around here since the start of this board, well into the history of the old board, and hell even back to the ESPN board where so many of us first got acquainted.  But the truth is I've been living a lie.  For the last 2+ years, I've been "HaloFromVegas" posting from... Kentucky, of all places.  I moved here in 2015 to serve as Director of the Kentucky Legislature.  Still an Angels fan, still a regular lurker around here.  I'm a believer in the "quality not quantity" school of posting, and I have been frequently mistaken for Vegas Halo Fan (who it turns out believes in the "quantity and also quality" school of posting...)  I'm a veteran of three AngelsWin Fanfests and sightings of the old AngelsWin inside joke "... is and idoit" still makes me chuckle.  One of my proudest moments came when I received an email from Jerry DiPoto, and my wife keeps a picture of her and Kole Calhoun on her nightstand (he's on her "freebie list" if she ever gets the chance). 

I'm happy to be liberated from my shameful lie and will be posting as a proud (adoptive) Kentucky boy going forward.  My office overlooks the central rotunda of the Kentucky Capitol, so look me up if you ever find yourself in Frankfort.
