    Another thing about the similarity is they both have their own coach and are somewhat revered by fellow players but also looked at differently because the nature of their job and the seperation it creates between them.

    Also a similarity can be found in the recent approach to finding both pitchers and goalies with shorter players being eschewed and thus falling farther down in the draft, causing a great deal of bargains to pop up.

    Hockey Goalie has to be the closest thing to a pitcher in all of sports, they both are alone out there controling the defense and both are so fraught with the ability to go bad if their technique goes awry. And both can can carry a team on their back alone.

    MLB: Reds. I didn't much pay attention to sports until the mid-80s. My dad and uncle were big Reds fans and they got excited when Pete came back to town, so I did too. Haven't stopped since.
    NFL: Bengals. Again the 80's thing. Boomer and Ick and Fulcher and Munoz, didn't stop despite the 90's.
    NBA: Bulls. Michael Jordan was everything you could want in a basketball star in the 90's. I don't know how many times I've seen 'Come Fly With Me.'
    NHL: Blackhawks. I've got a thing for tradition and they were one of the first.
    College Football: Basically sucks. I don't like CFB much at all. I'll watch the occasional quarter here and there. I'll look and see how my alma mater is doing too, or UK.
    College Basketball: UK, Murray State, again I don't much like collegiate sports though.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Re: your favorite sports teams...

    I don't believe in pulling for more than one college team I like all of Duke's teams win or lose. I would feel like a traitor if I pulled for someone else. The same goes for my other teams I pull for them and pull against everyone else. Except when teams play the tar heels, steelers, and cubs. Then I pull for who ever that is.
