I think most people who are big fans of sports teams are so for one of tree reasons:

  1. The team is of the city from which they hail.
  2. The rest of their family likes said team.
  3. They like the team’s “story” and relates to them somehow.

So why are you guys fans of these teams? Do you like the uniforms? Is there a sense of pride in having a connection to the city in which the stadium is located?

Connection to the city in which the stadium is located. People that live in my area cheer for the Philly teams. It should be illegal to choose to become a fan of a team because you like their uniforms.

I was born in Chicago and my dad rooted for Chicago teams because he was born in Chicago and his dad rooted for Chicago teams and…

I don’t care enough about sports to be a fan of anything other than the teams from where I grew up. And even those teams I can barely call myself a fan of.

What’s so different about that? At least if you like the uniforms then there’s personal taste there. You don’t choose where you’re born.

You may not choose where you’re home town is still you’re home town. When you watch the Olympics do you cheer for team USA or the country whose colors you like the best?

I blame it on my Dallas Cowboy pajamas. As a five year old, it seemed as good a reason as any to root for a football team. As for the remaining leagues, in second grade, I got a Phillies hat, so that takes care of baseball. I am from Jersey originally, so as I began to appreciate the NHL way back when, the Devils seemed like the obvious choice. NBA? I really haven’t followed anyone post Jordan. Apologies for the minor degression off topic, but the completest in me could not resist.

I am hoping against hope the Eagles will bring home the trophy; tired of the Patriots.

I can pretty much guarantee mfm does not watch the Olympics and he actively roots against the US at the same time.

You’re Cowboys and Devils fan and also a Phillies fan and you hope the Eagles bring hope the trophy??? The first two just don’t go together with the last two. Drop the Cowboys and Devils.

Why would he root against the US?

Lol, right on. Except I don’t root against the US, I just have no interest in the games.

I thought it might bring you some joy when people who root for the US are sad.

No because at least the Olympics are a competition of the world’s best athletes and you can at least say that you like the country you’re rooting for. Even if you like the city your team is based in, it’s still just a collection of athletes from elsewhere that the city’s team has hired. I like it when die-hard fans that enjoy taking pride in other people’s accomplishments get cut down a bit. I especially hate it when people refer to their teams as “we”, as though they have anything to do with the team. The fans’ hostility toward the kneeling athletes also pisses me off lately. My irritation is all about the fans, not the sports themselves.
