In Topic: When is it appropriate to switch favorite sports teams?

Today, 03:25 PM

Some states dont have home teams.

I was born in OK when there were 0 pro sports teams.

Back then, you got TV games from the most popular teams. - Cowboys, Dolphins, Steelers, Yankees, Dodgers, Celtics, Lakers, etc

Plus, wherever we lived, we felt compelled to root for players who were either born in OK or played college ball at OU, OSU or Tulsa

Mantle, Murcer, Maravich, Bench, Sims, Sanders, Aikman, Largent, Selmon, Stargell, etc.

When we moved to VA, there was no baseball team there so we stuck with the Yankees. We also stuck with the Cowboys even though the Redskins had us surrounded.

For a time, we followed the Bullets since we got to see a few games. But we mostly rooted for the Celtics and Maryland and VA in college hoops.

As an adult, when I moved to Chicago, I got free Cubs tickets all the time, so I became a fan. That coincided with the Yanks signing of A-Rod.

I will still watch the Yanks and root for them, but Im really more into the Cubs now.
