Your Team Allegiance!

Since this is a sports-centered site I thought we could start out by introducing ourselves via our team allegiances and why we came to root for certain teams. I'll start.

Football: Pittsburgh Steelers
Baseball: (AL) Texas Rangers, and sometimes (NL) Pittsburgh Pirates
Basketball: Oklahoma City Thunder
Hockey: Pittsburgh Penguins
Soccer: (don't really care) but I like the Portland Timbers unis
Not a team sport, but I also love MMA.

I'm weird because I've never lived in Pittsburgh, my dad grew up there and passed down the Black & Gold to me. I remember watching my first Steelers game against the Raiders when I was 4. I didn't get into baseball until I moved to Texas so I became primarily a Rangers fan. (miserable days for us right now) I'm now a big baseball guy but my one true love will probably always be football. I briefly lived in Oklahoma when the Sonics moved so I became an OKC fan since Pittsburgh doesn't have one. I like the sport of hockey but rarely watch it. I'm a huge fan of MMA, pretty much every fighter except Conor McGregor and Jon Jones. I hate actually playing soccer so I don't follow it much, except for the World Cup sometimes. I also don't follow much collegiate sports outside of March Madness and the bowl games.

How about y'all?

Re: Your Team Allegiance!

NFL: Dallas Cowboys
MLB: Washington Nationals
NBA: Washington Wizards
NHL: Washington Capitals
MLS: No one, I don't watch soccer.
NCAAF: Ohio State Buckeyes
NCAAB: Dayton Flyers

I'm originally from Washington DC, so that's why I like DC teams for 3 sports. The only really odd one is the Cowboys. That was passed down from my dad. He grew up in a house where he was the only one who watched sports. So he rooted for the best team (which was the Cowboys) because no one told him he wasn't supposed to. He also grew up in DC which I find funny.

I'm an OSU fan because I've lived in Ohio for more than half my life, and I'm a UD fan because it's where both my parents went to school.

Re: Your Team Allegiance!

NFL: Steelers
MLB: Pirates, but if Charlotte were to get a team I’d root for them
NHL: not really anyone, maybe when Seattle gets their team
NBA: Timberwolves
I follow soccer somewhat but don’t have a specific club I root for.

Re: Your Team Allegiance!

NFL: Panthers, of course.
NBA: Hornets (unfortunately)
MLB: Orioles, though if Charlotte gets a team my allegiance switches.
NHL: I guess the Hurricanes? I hate Raleigh so there's no attachment there. Maybe I'll follow Seattle.
MLS: Anyone but Atlanta.
CFL: Toronto, though I don't watch.
Minor Leagues: Knights and Checkers, of course, though I like the Tourists a lot too.
