    Re: How Did You Pick Your Football Teams or any team?

    Deep soul searching and careful consideration weighted against my geographical location, favorite color and manliness of the team.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    Re: How Did You Pick Your Football Teams or any team?

    As an 8 or 9 year old our vertical attack drew me to the game. Something about Cris Carter making a 1 handed catch, seem so effortless, just made me fall in love.

    Besides, my local teams would be The Hamilton Tiger Cats, The Bills and The Lions... That is one big triangle of sucking. I understand why there aren't many die hard fans around here.

    Re: How Did You Pick Your Football Teams or any team?

    I'm a Vikings fan because that's what was shown on the CBS station from Des Moines every Sunday when I was a kid.

    I'm a Cubs fan because of WGN.

    I'm a Wild fan because they are the local team here in Minnesota.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Dad liked the purple people eaters growing up although I think he's still more of a Giants fan. We had(and still have) a very warm vikings blanket when I was growing up that I used as a kid.

    The Yankees, Knicks, and Rangers are all local. I go to Rutgers.

    Grew up watching games with the old man - born, raised and reside in MN so it was pretty much a given.

    Some of my ancestors were real Vikings, how could I not be a Vikings-fan?

    I also have some distant family in Minnesota.

    If not for these reasons I would probably have been a Seahawks-fan, because Seattle is a twin city of my hometown Bergen.

    I always thought Favre was a giant douchebag so I picked his biggest competition to root for.

    Re: How Did You Pick Your Football Teams or any team?

    My dad and grandpa we're both born and raised in Minnesota , so although I spent a majority of my childhood in California the Vikings we're driven into my head , not complaining by any means I wouldn't have it any other way , but it's been kind of a family tradition to be Vikings fans.
