Default Do you follow a team not in your city?

How do your friends feel about it?
My buddy is a huge Steelers fan and he gets ripped all the time.
Before I ever even followed football I like the Chiefs because I thought Okoye was fun to watch.

Been a Titans fan before they were even the Titans....don't ask why. Follow them as though I lived in Tennessee.

Michigan St is another one for college.

Man U for soccer.

That's about it because those are the only leagues that don't have a team from Toronto.

I live in a small town about 120 miles from Cincinnati and 200-plus from Cleveland and Pittsburgh, so that is usually where the loyalties lie for people here.

I can say that from my time from living in Pittsburgh, I didn't meet a single football fan who supported someone other than the Steelers (besides me of course lol)

Living in the UK sucks, because I like basketball and really starting to get in to NFL.

When it comes to those two sports it's the Grizz and Lions for me. For NFL though, I've only been getting into it the last couple of years there's a few team I enjoy to watch, which include, Baltimore, Denver (not today though, that was pretty sad) and Detroit. I've found that I love watching the Lions, mainly because of Megatron and the rest of the young talent on that team. Gonna be a really good team in a couple of years

As for the UK, I don't really follow any of the sports over here, except for Champions League, in which case I support Bayern Munich. I like to watch Inter aswell. Was kind of amusing to watch both those teams get to the final last year.

The Sixers. No Pittsburgh NBA team so I gotta go with Philly. Plus AI is the reason I fell in love with bball.

Grew up in philly, so I get ripped all the time here. Last 3 years of baseballs been as roller coaster as it gets for me. We (philly) win it all, then we (NY) win it all the next year, and now we're both out at the same time

Nuggets\Broncos. I'm from Canada and a good piece away from Toronto so never really had a sports team where I could go watch on a consistent basis. Chose the Nuggets randomly when I was younger. Just became a fan of the NFL tho. At this point I basically just cheer for whatever Denver team there is.

Kinda sucks because only get to see like 1 NBA game a year from them and won't get to any NFL games live.

I live in NYC which has absolute crap for college athletics. In NCAA football I root for the "U", and in basketball I root for Syracuse.

Yeah, I live in Toronto but I've been rooting for teams I liked since I was young.

NBA - Always been a Heat / Celtic fan
NFL - Always liked the Dolphins / Patriots
NHL - Always liked the Penguins and Maple Leafs (Only Toronto team I root for, and kind of by default since it is so big here)
NCAAB - Louisville / USC / UCLA

Main teams in BOLD. Now a days no one will believe I've been a Heat/Celtic fan (well at least new people/people on ISH) since they like the best 2 in the EAST haha. First time they both been contenders in the same year.

Boston is a great city, and I ain't even Canadian so I don't even care about that Canadian pride.
