Re: Favorite/least favorite teams in all sports
Where to begin:
Least Favorite: Cardinals, Cubs, Braves, Red Sox
I actually respect the Yankees. They have the money, but they have the mystique and tradition to make up for it. The Red Sox complain about the Yankees, but spend the second most in payroll far above the third highest team.
Least Favorite: Ravens, Steelers, Patriots
Least Favorite Players: The Mannings
Of all of my teams, the Bengals I would probably switch. That being said, I can't jump on the Colts bandwagon because of the Mannings. With the Bengals success, I'm back in the fold for now.
Favorite: Celtics, any team with a UK player making a sizable contribution
Least Favorite: Lakers
I don't really follow the NBA, but the Celtics I grew up loving for some reason. Also liked the Bulls when MJ played but quit following thereafter. Never did like the Lakers.
Favorite: Kentucky, Marshall
Least Favorite: Ohio State, West Virginia, Louisville, Duke (in basketball)
I've lived in West Virginia for almost nine years and while I do respect most of the WVU posters on this forum, most of the fans are downright conspiracy theorists with an "it's us against the world" mentality. It's never WVU's fault if they lose a game and everybody from the refs to ESPN is to blame.
Louisville is obvious. Duke for the media hype. I watched Duke-FSU last night and Dick Vitale went nanners because a FSU player pounded his chest after dunking on Duke. I actually respect Thad Matta and the basketball program, just can't get how the fans turned Jim Tressel into the second coming of Pete Rose.
