I'm no bandwagoner, theres a reason for them all lol.

12 years in Tampa(Born there) Bucs and Lightning and Florida Gators (Manchester United same owners as Buccaneers so followed them by association)

When I was 12, before I moved to St. Louis, we were gonna move to San Antonio. While we were house / school shopping my dad took me to a Spurs Game.

Ended up moving to St. Louis, only baseball I followed was Anti-Yankees, so easy to be a Cardinals Fan..there is a lot of history for them.

Now I live in Vegas, Golden Knights are a great story, and hockey is awesome.

The first inning of today's Giants @Angels game had the longest single pitcher/hitter at-bat in baseball history. As in all of big-britches baseball forever. Spoiler: the eventual result was a fly ball out to right field. And one hard used starting pitcher.

$83,241: Equivalent TV ad time for @thecoffeebean for being behind home plate for Brandon Beltís longest at bat in MLB history, according to @ApexMGAnalytics. Game was broadcast on Fox Sports West & NBC Bay Area.

$133.28: What Brandon Belt cost the Angels by fouling off 16 balls in one at bat. Home teams pay a wholesale rate of about $8.33 per ball.

Alabama football. Lived there till age ten.
Chicago bears nfl. As a child with no local team, i was indoctrinated by a family friend who bought me bears stuff.

Moved to LA

Lakers. Saw showtime in person many times.

Baseball is my favorite but no team. I dumped the dodgers. They cut security to save money in spite of a gang problem and a guy almost died. How can you support that?

More people should dump teams that make a conscious effort to screw fans.

51s!

VGK.

Also root for Detroit teams. My family is from there.

I'm not passionate as a fan though. I was a kid but now I see it as just entertainment. And gambling opportunities obv.

If you guys like some pretty good and interesting sports related videos, check out this youtube series called "Pretty Good" and "Chart Party"

Pretty Good This one is about "Pretty Good" Sports stories. The Lonnie Smith story is my favorite, such a crazy career he had!

Also Koo Dae-Sung one, epic

Chart Party This one focuses more on crazy statistics and infographics.
