Re: Are you are fan of your home town team?
I do not. I support the Blazers in basketball(NBA) as my 2nd favorite team though. Would support the Winterhawks in hockey(top tier junior league out of Canada with a team here), but will never support the Timbers (MLS) because their fans are the snootiest hipsters ever.
I have picked up teams as my favorites where I used to live though, my favorite AAA and A level minor league clubs in baseball are both in places I lived for 10 years, the Reno Aces and Lynchburg Hillcats. As well as my local University teams from Reno, which was also my alma matter.
Other than that, my favorite teams have more to do with liking them for reasons other than proximity.
