It’s Opening Day, baseball fans. Some argue it should be a national holiday. It’s time to celebrate. Forget about next year, this year. THIS is the YEAR my team will finally win it all. Right? No.

Facebook, based on Likes, released a map showing which baseball teams are the most popular in each county across America.

It’s no surprise, all Colorado counties except Mineral are Rockies fans. (Get it together, Mineral). To be fair, apparently Facebook didn’t have enough Mineral County data to determine a team.

Rockies fans go beyond Colorado borders. Wyoming, New Mexico, Nebraska, South Dakota, Kansas and California have counties that root for the Rockies. Pretty cool, eh?
