    A totally non-political thread.

    Obviously Rutgers is the favorite for college teams so let's keep it to pro sports.

    Who are your favorite Pro Sports teams in these leagues.

    I'll start it off.

    MLB: Yankees

    NFL: Chiefs, but I'm going to take a break from the league until further notice.

    NHL: Devils

    NBA: I don't watch the league at all , was a Nets fan a long time ago.

    MLS: I don't watch the league, would be Red Bulls if they were named New Jersey.

    Intl Soccer: Don't watch much, a little English League, Everton

    Over the years I have stopped rooting for one specific team as much as players who I think represent similar values or motivate me.

    However for teams it’s mostly Rutgers, Devils and Yankees. NBA I like but use to be nets fan. Now I root for certain players and teams.
    For football I’m likely done with the Jets. Woody is a joke and so is the team.

    NHL: no interest
    NBA: no interest
    NFL: Giants (barely)
    Soccer (any soccer): no interest

    Me too. They were the only teams in the metropolitan area when I first started paying attention to sports.
    Although I haven't really watched a Rangers or Knicks game in years.

    College: Rutgers and Big Ten Football/Basketball (A Passion)
    MLB: Mets
    NHL: Devils. Also enjoy watching San Jose Sharks and Buffalo Sabre games
    NFL: Jets although it's incredibly painful and I've tuned out over the past 2-3 years. Also enjoy Cleveland Browns and Carolina Panther games
    NBA: At a Crossroads. Used to be huge Knick fan and haven't watched the Knicks or NBA in at least 2 decades. I watched a few NBA games this weekend for the first time in many years and don't recognize the game. College Basketball is so much better
    Soccer: Can't do it. Always thought I'd end up watching Premier League games, however, just never got into it

    MLB : Braves
    NFL: Falcons
    MLS: AL United
    NBA : Hawks

    NHL - Grew up in NJ avid Ranger fan(before Devil's).. Followed Thrashers, but ownership was HORRID. after they left town,. NHL has zero coverage down here and I have not gotten back into it to fully follow NY Rangers

    EPL: Man City I guess, daughters boyfriend is big fan, so I'll root for them and follow somewhat to give us things to talk about.

    NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA - Philly teams in that order.

    Don't really follow any other pro sports.

    Would rather see RU win a championship in football or bball before any pro team though.

    Yankee fan at least since birth and maybe earlier. Can recite the lineup of the 1950 Yankees, including several subs, but cannot remember what I had for breakfast. Giants, Knicks, Washington Caps. Would rather watch cricket than soccer. Still remember what a guy from our English counterpart, who had his nose broken six times playing rugby said about soccer. Rugby is a game for thugs that is played by gentlemen. Football is a game for gentlemen that is played by thugs

    I only like football a lot (Giants mostly, but I was in awe of Lambert/Green Steelers)
    Baseball is for kids and seniors
    Basketball is for parochial schools and colleges with bad football (NBA is for China and Kimmy Ding Dong)
    Hockey is for foreign players and fans with bad hair but hairy backs - although a big number of beautiful women like hockey

    That may have been an every once in a while situation. Haven’t seen it lately, but sometimes the Philly stations used to televise Capitals and Bullets/Wizards games.

    Remember when the Meadowlands Arena used to host the Devils, Nets, Seton Hall, and the Rockets and Cosmos indoor soccer teams. Not sure if it was the same exact year, but roughly the same era had an indoor lacrosse team , pro roller hockey,and arena football league team. Throw in concerts, ice shows, and the circus too. Plenty of work for ushers, box office, snack stand, and parking lot staff back then.

    Rutgers

    Stopped following the NBA after the Nets moved to Brooklyn. Stopped following NHL way before that. Follow the Yankees, but can't find it in me to watch games until Sept/Oct. These days, it's Spurs, Rutgers, Jets, Yanks, in that order.

    Hard to get into soccer when it is so damn boring

    MLB = Yanks
    NFL = Raiders
    NHL = Rangers
    NBA = Don't care
    Soccer = yeah right, boring at any level
    Quidditch = Bulgarian National Team (Go Krum!)

    It used to be before cable(did I just date myself [roll])

    O I didn't know that. Like I said not a huge fan but the 1st few races he sucked. My one employee told me(he's a huge fan of the sport), what did you expect he has a new team and it takes time to work out the kinks. I guess he was 100% correct

    Back in the 70’s, Sunday night television absolutely sucked! The only thing on television after 10pm besides Joe Franklin and religious programs were the Rangers. My brother and I became Ranger fans. The players we rooted for were Eddie Giacoman, Jean Ratelle, Brad Park and Vic Hadfield. I have to admit however, my interest in the NHL and hockey has definitely waned.
