Heidenreich Posted May 11, 2005 Share Posted May 11, 2005 Sorry if this was already posted. Favorite, fan, & team in the search showed a LOT of responses. I didn't see it in the first two pages.... Anyway, someobody made a point on a thread on Fedex about Redskins gear about people "Probably being a fan of the Lakers, Yankees, & Red Wings", obviously a knock on people being frontrunners. It got me to thinking (mainly because I root for two of those teams) how did you become a fan? I know some of us are normal, and root for the locals, but I also know people are like me, and root for other teams. I am a Yankee, Knick, Redskins, & Red Wing fan. My brother is a Blue Jay, Utah Jazz, Dolphin, & Flyer fan. Only my one roomate is a Yankee, Knick, Giant fan. Anyway, here's my reasoning. Yankees- My dad's team, his dad's team, his dad's dad's team, will be my son's team someday. Knicks- I didn't really get into hoops until around 1990. And back in the day, you couldn't see every team on TV like you can today. So I watched the Knicks, and started to follow them. It's been hell most years ever since.... Red Wings- The one team I take flak for, but the reasoning is simple. They were really, REALLY good in NHL '93 for Sega genesis..... 'Skins- I HATED the Giants growing up. I really don't know why, but i know I didn't like them. So, to piss off the Giant fans in the area, I had to pick a rival. The St Louis Cardinals were terrible, so they were out. Even at a young age, I knew I didn't like Philly. My mom tried to help by buying me a Cowboy helmet, but I didn't like the colors. By process of elimination, that left Washington. And I wouldn't want it any other way..... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
