Re: Are you are fan of your home town team?
Without a doubt. And I'm not one of those fans who are only fans when their teams are winning. For example: I cheered for the Detroit Lions every game during our back-to-back 0-16 & 3-13 seasons and other previous horrible seasons. I cheered for the Detroit Tigers a several years ago when we lost over a 100 games and during the past several seasons when our very talented teams missed the playoffs every year (except last year). I cheered for my Detroit Pistons during the '03-'06 seasons when we beat the LA Lakers for the championship and also won 4 or 5 straight Eastern Conference Championships and I still cheer for them while they are currently rebuilding. And finally, I've never had a problem cheering for my dynastyrrific-Detroit Red Wings who've won 3 cups in the past 13-14 years, more than any team and also their 21 straight playoff appearances... a current record which will most likely never be broken.
I love all of my professional sports teams in Detroit: (fuck the Detroit Shock and the WNBA, sorry ladies)
Detroit Red Wings
And I can honestly say if we were to get an MLS professional soccer team, I'd learn about soccer so I could cheer for them.
Really no specific order except that I absolutely love my Detroit Lions & Red Wings. I'm also a big fan of the Tigers but since the baseball season lasts so long and there are so many games, I tend to cheer for them more during late-August, September, and October when it's getting closer to playoff time.
As you can see with my signatures, I'm also a big fan of certain teams/athletes from the big 4 sports organizations (NFL, NBA, NHL, & MLB) but mostly teams/athletes from the NFL, NHL, and MLB.
I cheer for NFL teams like: Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots, Houston Texans, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders, and Cincinnati Bengals.
I cheer for NHL teams like: Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Islanders, Winnipeg Jets, and Dallas Stars.
I cheer for MLB teams like: Washington Nationals, Baltimore Orioles, Oakland Athletics, and Pittsburgh Pirates.
The one NBA team that I cheer for is the Sacramento Kings. They are loaded with young talent (IMO) guys like: Tyreke Evans, DeMarcus Cousins, Jimmer Fredette, Isiah Thomas Jr, Thomas Robinson, and Travis Outlaw.
