How did you come to like your favorite team?

How did you come to like your favorite team?


I lived in So Cal and pops was a Rams fan. Never really liked them though. I was 6 when I became a Cowboy's fan. My best friend and I used to play this football game that you plugged in. http://www.hammacher.com/publish/74303.asp?promo=xsells The players in this pic show just Red and Blue but the one my friend had the Helmets were of the Cowboys and Deadskins.

I just always liked the colors of the Cowboys and then they won the SB in 1978 and I was on board for good. Staubach (short lived), Randy White, Dorsett, and Pearson.

And here I am 34 years of age.

I was born in Cincinnati, my dad used to take me to Bengals games back in the day of Ken Anderson (and then Boomer), Collinsworth, Munoz. So I've always been a Bengals fan. Then, I moved to South Florida for a few years during the Marino years. I'm still a Dolphins fan from that. I've lived in Indianapolis since 1994, which is why I'm a Colts fan, true and blue. I've always been an AFC person as a result.

I'm old, so this dates me a bit.

I was a Dolphin fan at the tender age of 10 when they went 17-0. We moved to the Seattle area before their first season and went to the games and the rest is history. SEAHAWKS, BABY!! 32 years later... still a fan and now my 15 year old son is getting autographs like I did back in the day.

It was really wierd when he got Jim Zorns autograph 30 years after I got mine. :-*

I grew up as a Steelers fan. I have a lot of family in Pittsburgh and all of my clothes as a kid were black and gold. Sometime during the 80's, I became a Jets fan. Not sure why and there are many times that I wish that I could change it. I still like the Steelers but the Jets are my top choice.

drafted into it. parents were from the greater Philadelphia area, always lived in the heartland of the eagles fan base, and eventually went to a philadelphia area school.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

In all my years of living here, I've never heard anyone but the news call it "the greater philadelphia area." I question your authenticity!

Anywho, I loved Cinny from fantasy football. Kitna took me to my first championship, and then Palmer to my second. Housh got me second and a losers bowl win this year.

Michael Irvin pretty much, was always my favorite player and I tried to be like him when I was growing up playing football...then the cowboys just became attractive to me, around the 90's was when I was just starting to get involved in watchiing football intently...

I was born in Washington and bemoaned the Seahawks through 15+ years of Dave Kreig fumbles and John Kitna/Rick Meier interceptions. When we signed Marcus Trufant from WSU out of the draft, I started to gain interest, and when we became an offensive powerhouse for a couple of years there I became a huge Hasselbeck fan. I have fallen in love ever since the season before the crushing walk-off defeat in Lambeau 4 years ago :-{
