For those of you that follow the true football whoareya.com is a great site to get some non licensed T-shirts. My favorite by far is a United shirt that says “MUFC not arrogant, just better.” That leads me into the point of this little blurb. Sports teams, who do you, cheer for? Who do you follow? I love sports. Love to watch; love to play them; and I LOVE to talk about them, but having said that I don’t really have a “team” for every sport. First and foremost I am a Manchester United Fan to the core. Outside of Futbol I cheer for the Texans, UNT, and started following the Rangers while I was attending college in Denton.
MANCHESTER UNITED- There is only one UNITED and that is the truth for me. I know a lot of soccer fans that will follow a team for each league and I can understand that. But if they are not Manchester United or the US national team….. Can’t both teams lose? I'm not really sure how I ended up cheering for United, its just always been that way. I remember running home the final day of 8th grade to catch the last couple of minutes for the '99 Champions league final. I got to watch both goals live and will always remember that game. Of course nothing beats seeing them play live. I was lucky enough to catch them in LA in 03 and I'm planning a trip with my friend Robbie to the Theater of Dreams next spring to scratch off one of the top to do things on my sports bucket list.
U.S. National Team- America Fuck Yeah! Pretty much how I feel about international sports in general. If there is a sport going on that the U.S. is involved in i'm cheering for them. I grew up a military brat and one of the benifits of that is a strong sense of national pride. While my primary focus of this is the our soccer team, I will dawn the Red, White and blue for any sport.
HOUSTON TEXANS- I enjoy the logo and the fact that they are a team from Texas not named the Dallas Cowboys. I was a fan of the cowboys as a kid, but that has faded with the emergence of Jerry “the GM” Jones. I am a player’s guy, in that I don’t care who the owner is. The less I know the better, so if I can give a short speech on you it’s because I DON’T LIKE YOU! Plus let’s face it, the NFL is about the only league you have to have a team to cheer for. The fact that so far all i've told you is I hate the cowboys should tell you how deep my loyality lies. Having said that i'm trying to become a better fan. We'll see how it goes.
University of North Texas- I am a fan of the University of North Texas because they have all of my money. Well at least they will after this year is over. I really enjoyed my time there and I will always be happy I went. Plus this is the only team I can point to and say “SEE I’m not a fence rider!” Hopefully a new stadium and a new coach will breathe some life into those lungs up in Denton.
Its been a great start for all the above mention teams and hopefully this is a sign of things to come.
