Favorite minor league team.
There is absolutely no way I could abandon any of my favorite teams. Fuck, if I could I would have left my Redskins years ago. I just don't have it in me to do it.
You had Shaq & Penny and have been in the finals, quit acting like you’re Sacramento
I was a Cubs fan growing up, used to spend a lot of time visiting family in Chicago in the summers, probably been to a couple dozen games at Wrigley. When the Dbacks moved in, it took a while for the change to happen(wasn't until well after they won the WS, which was fun, but not the same kind of investment in mercenary teams) but it did. Probably had more to do with not spending my summers in Chicago since the early 2000s. So, yeah, I pretty clearly would
Yeah but the refs got paid to fuck sac, we just didn’t pay shaq and fucked ourselves
the fact that you are not a Pats fan boggles my mind
I’m a lifelong Saints fan.
I think after the Mora, Ditka and Haslett years if I’m still a fan then I’m not going anywhere.
I began rooting for the Redskins in 1982, (long story), I never liked the Patriots. Once the bandwagon train started circa 2001 I learned to loathe them. I'd rather root for the Taliban than the Patriots.
For me, true fandom is something you are afflicted with and you can't change.
My parents were Tennessee fans, so my first clear football memory is Peyton Manning breaking 9 years without a win against Alabama when I was 7. Manning was drafted by the Colts when I was 9. I became a Colts/Manning fan even though the Titans just moved to Nashville.
When Manning went to the Broncos, I became a Broncos fan. I thought that when Manning retired, I'd just become a Titans fan. But I can't make myself care about the Titans.
But I have become deeply emotionally invested in Liverpool over the last ten years.
i not really into the redskins at this time. snyder is a bad owner, a bad person, and i don’t have to take his bullshit anymore.
Been a cowboys fan since 1979 .. my kids cowboys fans .. never changing .
Would be one of the few acceptable situations of having two favorite teams. Imo I’d slowly lose interest in the old team and the local team would become my favorite.
No, it's unfashionable to root for the local teams in Phoenix.
I've become a supporter of the local football club though. Hopefully will make it up to MLS in the coming years.
No. Los Angeles got two and no I am still a Broncos fan
I don't blame you but some of my best Ms fans are from PDX so I loathe this day
I hate this thread
I abandoned the Bills when the Titans came to town as a teenager. It would be a whole lot tougher to switch teams now as an adult though
Very close to leaving and being a Rams fan, but then the Lions would probably get good to spite me.
I was a Hawks fan in Orlando when Dwight Howard dominated us and never wavered. I was born into this hell and even if I move im gonna die in it.
On another note, I’d like to live in a NHL city so I can claim a new NHL team.
>pick a team
>stick with team for life
I probably went to 30 Nats games at RFK the summer of 2005. If you had any kind of government ID you could get a ticket, a beer, and a hot dog for like $10.
And, it depends on the sport for me. If Birmingham got a NFL team or NBA team, I'd pull for it in a heartbeat. Baseball and hockey would be a lot tougher.
I would if they rape kids or gymnasts and tried to cover it up.
Family is from Texas but I grew up in Charlotte. When Charlotte got the #Carolina Panthers in 1993, my dad announced that the family would cheer for the Panthers and the #Dallas Cowboys Cowboys. When the Cowboys hired Barry Switzer, my dad prohibited us from cheering for the Cowboys while Switzer was coach (my dad went full Hank Hill). By the time Switzer left, we were all-in with the Panthers. Now I live in Dallas and hate the Cowboys.
I'm sorry you were abused?
Speaking of the blackhawks, just found out Bobby Hull’s daughter lives in my hometown and is practicing law
Some people are just fans for life and could never see themselves with another fanbase
You should look her up. She undoubtedly has serious daddy issues.
I will never abandon my LA Sparks
feels good knowing this will never be a problem.
That you ate a lot of paint chips as a kid.
My hands are too full cheering for Birmingham, Alabama's superior culinary scene to start following a new sports team.
If Nashville got a MLB team, I would not abandon the Braves.
ive often said that lubbock would be a good location for pro sports teams
If the Cowboys keep it up I am damn sure considering it. I barely care about the NFL anyway so it would be fairly easy.
Pro sports are different than college sports though. I grew up indocrtrinated in Cal sports but fairly quickly changed my allegiance to CU, but will never switch allegiance from my Norcal pro teams to Denver ones.
If Omaha got a pro team I’d check myself into rehab, because I’d know it wasn’t true and I was just so strung out and too busy getting high.
NFL - yes I’d switch
MLB - maybe, but moreso no.
NHL - which could be the most likely to happen, I definitely would not switch.
NBA - probably not.
Went to Browns games my entire life. Thought about quitting when they botched the Kellen Winslow draft. Made the decision to stop spending money on them after the Colt McCoy draft. Didnt make it a point to watch them unless they were on somewhere I was.
Casually follow the Falcons because a friend played for them about the time I took a Browns timeout.
Nebraska, Atlanta, Portland, Tampa, Pittsburgh, soccer...your teams are all fucked up bro
considering my local market is Durham NC, and my favorite team is part of a university in a different state, I'm going to say that it would have no effect.
I’m ride or die Hogs fan. They could lose every single game in every single sport and I’d still watch them do it and be a fan.
Be more specific?
So it's a troll post. I got you
Oh, you got me good.shucks.
how did you come to have that group of favorite teams?
they all have players from Kentucky
I grew up outside Tampa that didn’t have an MLB team until I was in college.
I’ve lived in Atlanta on and off for 20 years and I still root for the Rays.
