What professional teams do you root for?
What professional teams do you root for and does your OSU fandom have any impact?
NFL - I have been a Cowboys fan since about 1990. My best friend in kindergarten liked them so I started liking them too. It was great to see them take Zeke, but that seems to get more worrisome by the month. If there wasn't such a hatred for the Steelers it would be easy to like them for how many OSU players they draft.
NBA - I hopped on the Magic bandwagon in the 1990s. I don't remember the exact year but Penny was my favorite player. The NBA became more and more one-on-one so I stopped following it as much. I started following the Cavs but not actively rooting for them during the first LBJ go-around. Mrs. Jumar's high school met LBJ in the regional championship game twice, coming close the second year. I keep track of OSU alums to see how their career is doing and like to see the local team win, but I don't really have a favorite team at this point. The Spurs team first attitude is very refreshing in the NBA these days and it is good to see the local team win.
MLB - Incredibly hard to watch on TV but enjoyable at the stadium. I have somewhat followed the Indians but don't remember why I ever started.
NHL - Similar to MLB. It is nice to see the local team win but it is hard to get invested.
