    I'm basically a Bay Area guy, but it's a short list...
    NBA
    Don't really care as long as it's a team that's exciting to watch and plays solid defense. So basically no one.

    NHL
    San Jose Sharks---though I'm more of a hopeful fan than a die hard fan

    NFL
    49ers---I pull for them to win, but I don't live and die Niner football.
    Raiders---I liked them before they left for browner pastures in L.A....they can go eff themselves nowadays.

    MLB
    S.F. Giants---Die hard...I won't give up until they have one championship.
    A's----When I was a kid I loved the early 70's team, before free agency gave the Yankees Reggie Jackson and Catfish Hunter. Nowadays I don't care if the A's win or lose...mainly because of how obnoxious their fans were in the 80's.

    Red Sox---Loved them and always wanted them to win a ring...now that they have I want them to go away.

    Pirates---I'd like to see them win a division again, but I don't want to face them in the post season, they already dashed my dreams once that way.

    It's easier this way. If my favorites get beat, then I have someone else to root for...:)

    When the Angels lost in the playoff (playoffs!), I rooted for the Red Sox. When the Red Sox lost, I had to root for the AL team, but they lost...:(

    In that order.
    Favorite college sports team?

    Anyone who is playing BC . . . unless it's BU, then I pray for the arena to blow up (I went to NU, the red-headed stepchild of Boston-area college sports).

    I've always had a love-hate relationship with both the Yankees & Red Sox. The Yankees for beating the Dodgers in 77-78, & The Red Sox for beating the Angels in 86. But I've learned to like teams that have a tradition of winning, like USC & Notre Dame. I've always liked states of Tennessee, Kentucky & Louisiana.

    One of my favorite World Series was 1985. KC vs StL (or was that 83?...:right:) And as you can see, I don't have the Giants on my favorites, even though I rooted for them in 1989. That's becaues they beat the Dodgers in the last weekend of the 1992 Season, allowing the Braves go to the playoffs...:mad:

    Broncos, Rockies, and Avalanche. (I'm a homer.)

    Could not care less about the NBA.

    NCAA
    Navy, Colorado, Denver Pioneer hockey
    Metropolitan State College of Denver (Division II) my Alma Mater; Great men's basketball program, defending champs in women's soccer, and solid womem's volleyball program. They are (as I am) the RoadRunners!

    I'm a Badger hockey season ticket holder. As far as pro sports, I'm a casual fan. Although I know nothing about Nascar. That seems to be popular on this board.

    I can't root for more than one team in any sport. I will root for a team in a championship if my team doesn't make it, (usually the underdog team) but it's un-American to be a big fan of multiple teams, IMO. And your team is your team for LIFE! None of that switching teams bullshit.

    MLB: Reds
    NBA: Pacers
    NFL: Colts
    Hockey-don't follow it
    College-Indiana Hoosiers

    Then continue to live with the knowledge that your team will never make it to the World Series or NBA Finals for the rest of your life...:)

    Sorry if I sound like I'm putting you down for your teams. I can understand what you mean about following your team and sticking with them through thick and thin...:)

    I can't do that. I've had anger issues through out my life and living and dying by what one team can and can't do is not what I can handle. You're a better man than me. I've found that following more than one team helps me out a lot more.

    I've literally destroyed things when one of my favorite teams have lost. I've yelled at more TV's then any 100 people you've known. People like Donnie Moore have received my wrath, only to kill themselves a few years later because they couldn't live with letting his fans down.

    No, I'll choose to follow more than one team. It's better for me. I don't get angry anymore. If I feel the anger coming on, I just don't watch (or in my case now days, listen). When The Angels were losing in game 6 of the 2002 World Series, I turned off the radio and went to sleep. It was a great move because when I woke up the next day, I heard on the radio that they had come back to win the game and tie up the series...:D

    In 1997 the 49ers went up to Green Bay on a Monday Night and played on of the best games they'd ever lost. I stayed up past midnight just to watch that game. I didn't get mad when they lost. I gained a lot of respect for Brett and the Packers. I already liked them, but this made me like them even more...:)

    I don't live and die anymore with sports. I just like following good teams.

    If your Reds or Pacers become a powerhouse and win four championships in 10 years, I will add them to my lists.

    Like General Patton said in a famous speech...

    Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser. Americans despise cowards. Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed.

    So sorry if I sounded like an a--hole. I didn't mean to come off that way...:)
