Who's into sports?

Leeman75

Just about got booted out of the What is everyone watching on TV thread for hijacking it temporarily about sports. So, I'll open it up for those who love fish and sports!

What sports do you follow and which teams do you like?

I'll start off as I'm a big sports fan:

NFL - Minnesota Vikings (my favorite overall sports team)
MLB - White Sox
NBA - Bulls
Soccer (aka Football everywhere else but here) - Argentina and US National Teams
Collegiate Sports - Michigan and Illinois State (my alma mater)

Haven't, but my kids did the other night. Why would you want to watch the Mets beat my Cubs lately anyhow?
Well I’ll watch them play anyone but because of the Cubs record it was very satisfying watching my Mets beat them :).

That's understandable...they are the second best team in Chicago!

You better say the bears are the best, or, you don't want to know.

Was actually referring to the better baseball team. The better football team isn't even in Chicago. They're in Minnesota!

That's 2 strikes, one more strike and I'll have to block you.

Bulls?
 

SouthAmericanCichlids

Bulls are good. At least we can agree on that.

Someone should talk about them! :) I actually just purchased tickets last night to take the family to a game in July. For a few of them it will be their first professional sporting event in person!

There you go...we have the Bulls and the South American Cichlids!

I don't know that i would be calling the Bulls the best team in Chicago.....!!!
 

SouthAmericanCichlids

They are the best NBA basketball team in chicago!
 

BigManAquatics

They are the best MBA basketball team in chicago!
Bulls haven't even been able to tie their shoes since Jordan retired.
 

BigManAquatics

Poor tigers! They do need a pity tv show. Showing their lowlights. That would be one-small episode
A small episode that is 40 years long....
 

TheAnglerAquarist

Seems to me the best football team won the Super Bowl this year! ;)
I mean I’m sort of rooting for the lions because I like jamaal Williams. But they flat out stink. To be honest

My dad used to say that if a stick isn’t involved, it’s not a sport. So being a hockey fan was mandatory. :)

Hockey: Pittsburgh Penquins
Football: Pittsburgh Steelers

BigManAquatics

There’s really no other NHL teams to like! ;)
I blame Lemieux and Jagr
 

Leeman75

Lol... You are all over the place with your teams! Chicago, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Detroit!

Considering i work most sporting events for the Huskers....also thank WGN, video games and Barry Sanders!!! And ECU was basically the hometown college team when i was stationed in North Carolina, primary color being purple

I blame Lemieux and Jagr

Now Lemieux owns the Pens and Jagr owns and still plays for a team in the Czech Extraliga league.

Isn't Jagr about 350 years old now?

I think watching a snail run the mile is more interesting to watch than golf!

What do you think is going to happen with Rodgers?

Haha, that's funny. It can be very entertaining if you get to know the players. I have no idea what's going to go on with Aaron, or what actually is going on haha. I only root for them because my family does so I know the player's names(Jaire is my absolute favorite) but not any stats or anything like that. I just like watching it.
 

TheAnglerAquarist

Byu sports in general
Utah jazz in basketball
San Francisco 49ers in pro football
Chicago Cubs in baseball
To be honest I don’t care for soccer.
I like these teams because my dad is so passionate about them.

Just Aaron being a DIVA, almost on the level of T.O.!!
 

SouthAmericanCichlids

I'm fine with whatever team you like as long as it's not the Cardinals.

I agree! Oh hey, I’m well known now!

MLB: Cubs baby (my all time favorite team)
NFL: The Chicago Bears

Golf: xander schauffele

Cubs baby (my all time favorite team)
YEAH BABY. They are doing better than expected this year and the bullpen is doing surprisingly well

They are probably going to lose a lot of good players next year, a ton of contracts are up this year.

Well, it looks like it will be a close division race this year for the playoffs, so Bryant is guaranteed to miss 2 months after the all-star break. And he won't have 50 HRs and 125 RBIs for the season, so he only worth about 4 mil a year in my eyes. Plus he an Aaron Rodgers type diva, with the skills of Trubinsky.

Where are the college football fanatics? Clemson season ticket holder from back when they stunk. As in losing to FSU by 50 stunk.
I was a ball boy for the Braves. For a day. That was two stadiums ago but enough to keep me a fan.
I'm from the South, so I never understood hockey. Like soccer on ice only fighting rather than flopping.
The NCAA basketball tournament is the greatest sporting event on earth (1 billion World Cup fans disagree I'm sure).
I love women's college softball. There, I said it. I'll go to my corner now.

HupGupp

Long suffering Toronto Maple Leaf fan (NHL) here. The less said given recent events, the better.
Casual TO Blue Jays fan, but I can only watch a few baseball games per year without falling asleep.
I've lost the habit of watching the NFL, but I tune in for the last few games of the year to see if Brady can win again - I follow the CFL though, but the Hamilton Tiger-Cats are almost as heartbreaking as the Leafs.
Soccer: Hup Holland Hup!!! And I root for Belgium too as my backup team ;)

Don't mention Tom Brady to StarGirl !!!

Y'all should let him win a few more SuperBowls and then appoint him President for life but also allow him time to make action movies and clean up on the pro golf tour.
