I saw this thread over at TBD, thought it'd be a fun thread over here. Pretty simple concept, who are your favorite sports teams, and rank them in order. I thought everyone's favorite over there would be the Bills, put there were plenty of other teams. 

 

1) Sabres

2) Bills

3) Yankees

4) UNC (NCAA)

4) Chelsea

 

Other than that I follow every other sport besides Cricket and Rugby really, but the teams I like are based on players I like. I like the Nationals and Cavaliers because of Harper and LeBron, and I follow Speith in golf. NCAAF I don't really have a pony in that race, other than that I pull for which team I like the best at the end based on players, coach, and school morals/history. 

 

Anyone else?

To develop the order I asked myself, "would you rather see A or B win their respective championship?"

 

1) Buffalo Sabres

2) Notre Dame Fighting Irish

3) Baltimore Orioles

4) Michigan State Spartans (I come from a very confused family)

5) Buffalo Bills

If I watched any baseball, I'd include the Phillies and Orioles

And I only post on this message board. My other teams have fan bases that I don't particularly like associating with. But this is true of every fan base.

I was an Eagles fan at one point, even bought a TO jersey. But I was young, liked the jersey, and they were playing the Pats in the SB. I ###### hate Chip Kelly, so I'm hoping they go 3-13 this year, even though I think they can win that division.

My internship offered me floor seats (or about 5 rows back I think) to Syracuse basketball games for free  :flirt:

Not sure if I'll still get them, seeing as I don't work there now that the semester started, but hopefully I do. I've never been to a basketball game

Don't know.  Latched onto them as a kid and been a fan ever since.  Other than a brief period of time when Orel Hershieser was dominating on the mound, it's hasn't been an easy fanhood.

And, duh, he wrote an article on Yahoo Sports and then went ballistic when they pulled it because his Twitter feed was a cesspool. Someone here linked the article to the poster and he rage quit. This has to be in a thread somewhere, right?

Just because your family is confused doesn't mean you have to be.

Mississippi State

Used to be a big Braves fan, but lost interest in the the MLB in early 2000's.
Also liked the Knicks, but after the 80/90's players as a whole moved on my support for the NBA went w/ them. Miss legit team basketball. Not a norm in today's NBA.

3. Virginia Tech football

(distant) 4. Virginia Tech basketball

 

Definitely a much bigger NHL fan than NFL, but I do follow the Bills almost as much as the Sabres.  I watch as much as possible of the NHL playoffs, but NFL playoffs are not a priority.  However, I also think a championship for the Bills or VT football would be way more fun than for the Sabres.

Sabres

Bills

Texas Rangers

....(small drop off)...

Detroit Red Wings

...(big drop off)...

Mavericks

Cowboys

Stars

 

When I lived in Detroit I hadn't been following hockey in several years (pre Center Ice days and I lived in Los Angeles, then Ft Worth before moving to Detroit, so when I hooked back up with hockey it was when I followed the ascent of the Wings to their '97 Cup.  At that time, they were my favorite team, yes, even more than the Sabres.  The fact of the matter is that I really couldn't follow the Sabres "remotely" like you can nowadays, and I'd totally lost touch with the NHL anyway.  So I actually thought of the Wings as my "home team" for a while; my wife still does.

 

As for the Dallas area teams, only the Rangers are counted in my "home team" list.  The Cowboys are more like a "friends with benefits" team, where I'll spend an evening with them but I'm not emotionally attached.  Yesterday's game was enjoyable with the late Cowboys comeback, but I wouldn't have much cared if they'd lost.  But when they win, most of the sports fans around me are happy, so it's kinda good when they win.


Don't know.  Latched onto them as a kid and been a fan ever since.  Other than a brief period of time when Orel Hershieser was dominating on the mound, it's hasn't been an easy fanhood.  

 

I was living in LA at that time.  It was more than just Hersh; they had Fernando Valenzuela (whom I adored, as Lasorda used him as a starter, a spot reliever and even a pinch hitter and he pulled them all off well), Bob Welch, and umm.... yeah, one or two other good pitchers on the staff, Steve Sax at second, Mike Marshall (will never forget the brawl he started in San Francisco), Pedro Guerrero as the big bat, Mike Scioscia behind the plate, and the miraculous homer from Kirk Gibson.

It was a time frame reference more than a statement to the depth of the team.  They were a real good team.  I don't recall anyone predicting them to win it all, but they were solid.  And Orel did what he needed to do when it was all on the line.

Oh absolutely.  Orel ruled the mound for sure, but the rest of the team was pretty good too.  And.... Vin Scully.  Love that voice.

 

We moved from L.A. to Fort Worth about a year before the Dodgers won the Series in '88.  I watched them build up to it, but didn't really enjoy the payoff as much as if we were still in L.A. when they won it.  The Gimpy Kirk Gibson homerun is probably my third-favorite sports memory, behind the Bills comeback against the Oilers and the Red Wings 1997 Cup victory.

4. Orange Basketball

5. Cleveland Cavaliers (I moved to Ohio right around the time that Cleveland got Lebron and went to the finals versus the Spurs.  Lebron versus Detroit in the Eastern Conference Finals that year is still one of the best sports performances I've ever seen.)  I was previously not into the NBA.  I hated Lebron when he went to Miami and stayed a Cavs fan.

6. Orange Football

7. Ohio State Football (I'm trying to resist but they're damn good and I live in Columbus, so they're everywhere)
