And Tommy, you gotta get into hockey. Or at least pretend to.

Football

NCAA-LSU, just because they are the best ever, and I have been watching them since forever, I knew that LSU was a football team before I knew it was a College.

 

UL-They are getting better, and they are my home team, and Ive been watching them since before I could walk.

 

NFL-Saints-Home team, and well I pretty sure the first thing I saw when I was born was a saints game. Also Drew Brees is the best Quarter Back playing in the NFL, which kicks ass.

 

GreenBay-Really only out of respect for the franchise and its history for making football what it is today.

 

Basketball-

NBA-Hornets, they kick so much ass

 

NCAA-UL, they are my home team

 

KU-This is where basketball all began, and KU was the Beginning of Basketball, and will be there for the end.

 

Baseball-

a team that is no longer around, the Bayou Bullfrogs, I grew up watching them(Technically only minor league though.)

 

College-UL, their program kicks ass, and I have been following them since my childhood.

 

NASCAR-I know the thread said teams so I'll list Families of racers.

The Yarbroughs, Pettys, Earnhardts(not Jr though), and the Allisons. Though there is one racer worth mentioning, he's relatively new to the Cars, but has been racing trucks for a little while, Brandon Cassel, he is the next Petty.

Now ive heard of some fairly gaudy instances of kansas cock riding before but this one takes the cake.

this is wrong.

 

james naismith invented basketball, yes, and he coached at the university of kansas. HOWEVER. he invented it in SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS. which is not a synonym for lawrence, kansas. notice, springfield=/=lawrence; and kansas=/=massachusetts.

 

i hate when people get that wrong.

perhaps this will only demonstrate my lack of knowledge of nascar, but were there more than two? wasn't it just sleepy and jr? if so, does that mean you see pops as a one man team/family?

He didn't explicitly say KU was the birthplace of basketball (although it is implied), but it's very easy to make the claim KU has shaped basketball more so than any other location with the coaching tree established by Phog Allen.

yeah bruce, he did pretty much say it began there. i have no qualms with my decision to insert a rant there. whether or not kansas is the most influential program in basketball is a more favorable debate for the kansas side if only because it's debatable, whereas stating that kansas started basketball is not.

I only care about 2 things:

 

Pro football:

 

1.) KC Cheifs. I love this team, no matter how many times they break my heart. I can't remember a time when the cheifs were not my favorite. My first Halloween coustume I chose was a KC Cheif (Joe Montana). I still watch every game, no matter how bad.

 

2.) San Fransico 49ners. I like this team mainly because of Mr. Montana, who just happens to be my favorite football player. they are a distant second.

 

College Basketball:

 

1.) KU Jayhawks. The first ever roadtrip I remember going on with my dad was to catch a KU senior game playing in Great Bend, Kansas. (I think) I have supported them through thick and thin, through Bucknell and Bradley, through Syracuse and Maryland. I love this team, and I was incredibly happy when they won.

 

2.) Wichita State. Hometown boys, and we knew a guy who got us free tickets. I root for them pretty hard, but not as hard as KU.

NCAA Football/Basketball/Baseball:

 

University of Georgia - pretty much my whole family went there and I've been a fan as long as I can remember. Knowshon for Heisman

 

MLB:

 

1. Atlanta Braves - the team closest to me. I liked them better when they actually won, unlike this year

 

2. Tampa Bay Rays - no, not just because they are in the world series. I have liked them ever since they came into existence because they were always the underdog

 

NBA:

 

1. Atlanta Hawks - once again, the team closest to me. Pretty much the only good players we have are Josh Smith and Joe Johnson though...

 

2. Cleveland Cavs - Lebron is a complete beast, he is the best player in the NBA (sorry Kobe)

Hockey.

 

Only sport where you see grown men beat the crap out of each other, glide around on razor sharp blades of steel carrying weapons.

 

Ah...

 

Hockey season is back.
