    Baseball:
    Braves are my favorite, Mariners 2nd since they are the local team



    Football:
    49ers have been my team since I was little, but like in baseball, I'll pull for the Hawks



    College:
    Ducks all the way. Huge Football/Hoops fan. Also got to pull for the Alma Mater (PSU), esp in Hoops


    Hockey:
    I don't follow hockey closely, because I like to watch it in person more so than on TV but I like the Penguins simply due to them having a penguin as their logo :D

    The only other team I follow, is the Raiders.  Since they cut Jerkmarcus, they may actually have a better season.   More waste of $ and disappointing than Oden :)  Al Davis doesnt play around, if you dont produce, youre gone......

    It was apart of ESPN's 30 for 30 series. So it was an hour long documentary directed by Ice Cube about the connection between the Raiders move to LA and the hip-hop group NWA sporting their apparel and how the two combined made sense. Was pretty interesting and worthy of a watch. It should be on either ESPN channel soon since it just aired.

    Thanks, my personal opinion has always been that LA did not love the Raiders like Oakland does, but that might be interesting.

    Yes I am, because I am fan of football since I remember from 1982 I think when Poland was 3 (bronze medals) at Word Cup in Spain. Unfortunately this time Poland did not qualify but in 2012 we will have European football Cup in Poland and Ukraine and maybe then we can get some good result. Today my Wisla Kraków draw last game this season and get second place in the league an I am very sad with this situation because we were favorite and lost title in last 2 games (awful feeeling ). but I believe next season both my favorite teams Blazers and Wisla win a lot of matches  and get good results on the end.

    What about USA National Team ? DHawes22 Are You interested in soccer ? they are good and play in first round with England, Algieria and Slovenia so I think that They can reach second round or maybe better ?! Who Knows ?. Football is  very collective game and everything can happen !

    Netherlands is actually my 2nd fv team too! I really liked their fans and players back in the 98 world cup. Patrick Kluivert was my fv player. I am not a huge soccer fan, because we don't really have teams over here. I do love the World Cup though, because it allows me to just root for the country without even knowing who's on the roster. Although, Portland is getting a MLS franchise in 2011 which is pretty cool.

    Not sure how the USA is going to do well. It seems like when they have no pressure, they defy the odds and pull off a few upsets (like the one of Spain last year) but when they have a lot of hype (as in 2006 World Cup), they choke. I hope they at least get out of their group.

    Yes ! Patrick Kluivert was really good, he scored goals with easy in his moves, in present team there are two players which I admire : Robin Van Persie and Wesley Sneijder, they are also super players. About Portland soccer team it is really cool that they start at 2011. They have any name for team ? or it is to early for this ?

    They are called the Portland Timbers currently and I believe they will still keep that franchise name when they join the MLS in 2011. They have a pretty passionate and loyal following in Portland so hopefully it works out.

    Blazers are my only team I treat religiously with regards to watching games, stats, drafts and everything else. I do pick favorites for other sports because during the Blazers off-season when they aren't playing summer ball, I still watch ESPN and I figure I better have a purpose behind it ;)

    I have favorites, but just pick teams to pull for, not like uber fanhood.

    MLB - New York Mets/Boston Red Sox/Phillies
    NFL - Philadelphia Eagles/Buffalo Bills
    NHL - Philadelphia Flyers
    College - Oregon/Oregon State/Syracuse

    I actually was born in NoCal and lived there till I was 12. I had family in the Portland area and they would take me to Blazer games when we visited around Christmas time, etc and send me stuff, so that's why I don't have a connection to the Warriors or Kings. Most of my family also went to the UO, so that's where the Duck fan in me comes from.

    I've been watching a few Oregon football games lately. Really excited for football season to start. The Braves, winners of 8 of their last 10 and an amazing 7 run comeback in the 9th inning on Thursday are starting to make things interesting this summer. No playoffs since 2005..too long of a drought!

    Should have won had we not fumbled on the 10 yard line. The D did their best. Sometimes mobile quarterbacks, when they are accurate on that day throwing the ball, are impossible to stop.

    Exactly, all we need is a solid QB...I am not sold on Alex Smith the way a lot of people down in the Bay Area are. I mean we got the offensive weapons, and the defense...it's just that QB.

    Does suck we got the #1 pick in the 2004 draft when there really wasn't a clear cut #1 player to take. I think I am done with the Shaun Hill experiment and am willing to give Smith another season. Maybe the new and improved Oline will give him more time in the pocket? If he doesn't succeed this year, then it's time to bring in a proven QB via free agency.

    What will guaranteed to improve is our running game. Frank Gore finally has a line who can give him the lanes..or potential to. As far as Smith goes..still have to see.

    Bertram-
    Do you live in the Bay Area?  If so, do you get to go to any games?

    I like Gore, but I think we need to look for a future running back soon. Gore is getting up there in age and probably only has a few productive years left. At least get someone else to help shoulder the work load, to prolong his productiveness.

    Totally! NFC West is really up for grabs like it was last season. Niners are really close to making the playoffs I agree that Alex Smith needs to show what hes made of this season and break out or were probably looking for a new QB. O-Line and secondary got a boost from the draft (Hoping Mays works out for us) which were the weak areas on the team. I do love watching the D swarm with Smith on the line, and Willis backing him up.

    Gotcha. I was looking into going to a 49ers game or a heading up to Seattle and catching the Niners play there, but damn..$55 is the cheapest seat and they are waaaaayyyy up in the nose bleeds. Oh well, Football is a good sport to watch on TV, otherwise you can miss a lot of things, unlike Hoops.
