NHL: Detroit Red Wings.  Despite their early exit to the Ducks, they are one of the best times in hockey and the most exciting to watch.  To whoever said they're a Devils fan, I like Broduer, but watching Jersey puts me to sleep.  I hate the trap

MLB: Detroit Tigers.  They were my favorites when I was kid, back when they used to win games.  I still cheer for them though

NFL: Detroit Lions.  I'm shooting for a .500 season.  They drafted a couple guys from my alma mater, which I think is really cool.  Hopefully they get some playing time

NBA: Detroit Pistons.  I don't really care for the NBA, so its the Pistons by default.  I used to be a big fan back in the bad boy days, but I can't standthe NBA is a whole anymore

College: Grand Valley State University.  I went here for undergrad, and last year the Lakers were the Div II NCAA Football National Champions
Michigan State University.  Where I'm currently enrolled and I've been a lifelong fan of them.  GO GREEN

Well, I'm a bit of a hometown loyalist......so my favorite MLB team is the Astros.....

I really don't care for basketball.

I'm a fan of the Dallas Stars....as well as the Houston Texans ;)

Update with new dates  :P

NFL:

Minnesota Vikings (The 2005 Super Bowl Champs)

MLB:

Minnesota Twins (The 2004 WS Champs)

NBA:

Minnesota Timberwolves (The 2004 NBA Champs)

NHL:

Minnesota Wild (The 2004 NHL Champs)

When the North Stars left though I adopted the Avalanche as my NHL team, so they are 1a in my book

Beyond that I don't really root for anyone, I hate the Packers, Bears and Lions as well as most NY and LA sports teams (except the Yankees)

I also root for the Americans in the Olympics and how can you not root for Tiger Woods every time he tees it up...Tiger Rules

I have had a hard time lately picking my favorite teams, since we don't really have anything (professional-wise) all that close to us here in Nebraska.

NCAA Football - Nebraska Cornhuskers, of course.  Its part of life here.  Hard to explain if you don't live here I guess, but we don't have anything else for sports really.  We just love our Huskers....and I'm one of the fans that supports them, win or lose.

NCAA Basketball - North Carolina Tar Heels.  I've been a fan since I was in junior high or so, and have always liked them.  Finally back on track this year a little after a couple of down years.

NBA - My favorite sport, used to be a big Bulls fan (even a couple years before they won any championships...I just can't follow them anymore now, after all the dismantling they did with those great teams.  I've really been wanting to find an NBA team to stick with, it becomes harder when players don't stay with teams quite as much anymore.  I followed the Wizards when Mike was there, but don't care as much now.  I kind of like Sacto, Minny, Cleveland, Denver, Milwaukee, Seattle, and Dallas though (lots of them, I know, probably even more if I'd think about it :P).  I've been thinking about just following one of the closest teams to us (Denver, Minnesota, or Chicago are about as close as it gets I suppose).  I don't know, right now...I've just had favorite "players", but it would be nice to have a team again :).

NFL - Used to be a big Raiders fan (in the Bo Jackson/Marcus Allen days), but not that big of a fan anymore.  I don't know that I especially have a favorite, I don't have a problem with most teams (although for some reason I just don't like the 49ers or the Chiefs, can't really explain why other than the fact I didn't like them when I was younger)  I do like to go for all the former Husker players (I'm a big Ahman Green fan, have even seen him in person a couple of times...but just not a huge Packers fan).

MLB - I'm not a big baseball person anymore, I used to be big into the Royals, and then to a lesser extent the White Sox (when Bo went there).  Now, neither one really...Royals are still alright, and I find myself going for the Twins more so than anyone else now (my wife's a Twins fan as well).

Olympics - Team USA, any sport, although I really enjoy watching the basketball competition the most.

Here's a recap of why I wonder why I'm a Minnesota Sports fan

Minnesota Vikings:
Last Playoff Appearance: 2000
Last Super Bowl Appearance: 1977
Last Super Bowl Win: Never

Lastest Heartbreak: After Starting off the season 5-1, there is a real chance they could be tied with Green Bay next week for the NFC North lead

Minnesota Twins

Last Playoff Appearance: 2004
Last World Series Appearance: 1991
Last World Series Win: 1991

Latest Heartbreak:  After winning game 1 against the Yankees, they fall apart and lose three straight, two in extra innings.  Plus they let David Ortiz go in free agency

Minnesota Timberwolves

Last Playoff Appearance: 2004
Last NBA Championship Appearance: Never
Last NBA Championship  Win: Never

Latest Heartbreak:  Some say they could win it all this year, then Latrell Sprewell says, pay me more than 14.6 million because "I have a family to feed"  His role and team chemistry have to be a question mark now

Minnesota Wild

Last Playoff Appearance: 2003
Last Stanley Cup Appearance: Never
Last Stanley Cup Win: Never

Latest Heartbreak:  NHL Lockout could last all year and into the next...ouch

Minnesota Gophers

Last Bowl Appearance: 2003
Last Rose Bowl Appearance: 1962
Last National Championship: 1960

Latest Heartbreak:  Started the year 5-0, have now lost 4 of 5 and will go to the Motor City Bowl...woo

In all of team sports (college and pro), I really only have one team that I care about ... and that's the North Carolina Tar Heels men's basketball team.  I also follow Jeff Gordon in NASCAR.  That's about it.  I'm an avid follower of sports, but I just don't care about many teams.
