Just curious who out there is a sports fan, and who your teams are that you root for (any and all sports are welcome here)...
As for me, I'm a big sports nut, as is my wife. I was born and raised, and still currently reside here in SoCal (both in L.A. and Orange County/Anaheim), so you'll see my allegiances based primarily on that. I unfortunately can't help it if my teams are all better than yours, so please
don't flame me for that (*cough*Scott*cough*)! NBA:Lakers
(lifelong RABID fan - Magic, Kareem, Worthy, Shaq, Kobe, and of course Vlade... 'nuff said) Clippers
(local team, gotta cheer the poor doofs on. Someday...) NFL:Raiders
(lifelong fan, even before they ever moved down from Oakland long
(my hometown team growin' up - still a BIG fan despite their move) Packers
(just because my wife LOVES them - don't ask me why) MLB:
(Baseball for the abbreviationally challenged)Angels
(lifelong diehard fan - not much to cheer for 'til this year though) Dodgers
(lifelong diehard fan - what's goin' on lately here?) NHL:
(reduced to only a fairweather fan of late)Kings
(the only local team for a quite a while, not to mention that Gretzky fella) Ducks
(see Clippers, plus that Kariya/Selanne line was
fun to watch) MLS:Galaxy
(not that big a soccer fan really, but they're the "World" Champs, so I had to add 'em in) WNBA:Sparks
(see Galaxy) Collegiate:UCLA
(lifelong diehard fan, wife went there, sister school to mine) UCSB
(Santa Barbara) - (my former stomping grounds, but not too big at the national level) Olympics:Team U.S.A.
all the way baby! South Korea
(I lived there for the last 3 years of High School)Women's Tennis:Anna Kournikova
- She's WAY hot! Billiards:Jeanette Lee
(The Black Widow) - See Anna Kournikova.
Hmm, looks like I went off on a little tangent at the end there, which would better be served elsewhere, in a separate, future thread...
So, how 'bout you
? Who do you root for, if anyone? And if you generally despise sports altogether, that's totally cool too - I realize that they're not really for everyone...
