Re: What Sports teams do you follow?
My allegiance to these two teams come from my earliest memories of riding in the car listening to games with my dad when we lived in Lima, OH. He couldn't get radio reception in the house, so game time meant liesurely drives through the Ohio countryside listening to sports.
Soccer: USMNT, Columbus Crew, Bayern Munich, EPL teams with Americans.
I have loved soccer since playing in my youth but didn't really understand the emotion of the game until I lived in Salzburg, Austria in college. Latched on to Bayern because it was close to Salzburg and following the Austrian Bundesliga is just about impossible in America. I have a love/hate relationship with Arjen Robben. He's brilliant when he plays it straight, but he drives me nuts when he starts flopping like he's hit by sniper fire trying to draw a cheap penalty.
College Sports: Kent State first, but will follow Ohio State as a second team.
NBA: Followed the Cavs in the '80s when they played at the Richfield Coliseum. Favorite player was World B. Free. Lost interest when they moved to downtown Cleveland.
Hockey: only watch it during Olympics. Hockey was never on TV and radio in the areas I grew up save for the Olympics, so I never got into it. Watch it in the Olynpics ever since the Miracle on Ice.
I can never stay awake while watching NASCAR, golf, or tennis.
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
