Jim likes the Cowboys for some reason ::) ::) ??? ???

Yes, my reason being, growing up in a state with no pro teams to root for (Iowa) I had to look elsewhere for a team to follow. So I chose Dallas. Don't recall why I did but I've been a fan of there's ever since the early 80's. Loved the teams of old with Dorsett, Danny and Randy White, Ed "Too Tall" Jones, and of course, Coach Laundry. Ah, those were the days.


So I guess Jim just basically roots for whoever's coined "America's team" in each respective sport, huh?  Cowboy's, Braves...  That's one confused Minnesotan up there!   ::)


Again, growing up with no pro teams around, the Braves choice came from watching them back on TBS in the 80's where if you wanted to watch pro baseball, your choices were the Braves or the Cubs. I followed the Braves as that is what my grandparents liked watching and so I grew up watching them alot whenever I was over at their place and I was a huge Dale Murphy fan back in the early-mid 80's. Have loved them ever since. Very easy to stay a die hard fan when they win 11 straight division titles, going on 12.  8)  But I was due, they sucked in late 80's.  ;D

Uh...  Wasn't the 2003 Super Bowl Champion the Tampa Bay Bucaneers Mikey?  I could've sworn it was...

You're absolutely right Matt!  Maybe he thinks the Eagles will be the Super Bowl Champions for next season (2004).   :-\

NFL?  What the...  Brent , show your support for the CFL.  ;D

Heres mine!  :P



Dale, what team is that?  I know you said it's the CFL, but since it's really not a true football team, most of us won't be aware of who that helmet belongs to.   :-*   ;)

That would be the Edmonchuk Eskimos.  How droll (and politically incorrect).  

Dale,
ya gotta know who I'd be rooting for in the CFL.  Say, haven't you lost to us already this year ;)

Jim,
I am so very dissappointed in you. :-X ;)

Matt and Chris, I know the Bucs were 2002 champs. I was stating that the Eagles would win this year (2003)

Even though the Super Bowl is in January (or February in an extreme case  :( ), the winner of the SB are champs for the year in which the season started.  In the Bucs case, 2002.  In the Eagles case, 2003  ;)  If I'm wrong, then blame Sports Illustrated.  I have the Patriots special edition SI from after they won the SB and it says 2001 Super Bowl Champions., even though they won it all in February 2002.

I'm from tampa and am a Bucs fan.  

I know how tough it is to repeat in this day and age, but the bucs can do it and I think WILL do it IF they can get the running back situation resolved.  

Because:

Improved offense
Defense that lost 2 starters - and replacements were UPGRADES.

Jon Gruden - he brings consistency to the table as far as coaching goes - he's won three straight division championships with two different teams.

OK, gotchya Mike.  I figured as much, but just wanted to make sure you had the correct calendar up on your wall, is all...

Patriots   >:(

- Still disgruntled Raiders fan...   ;)
