Re: Favorite sports teams and sports personalities

I only follow baseball. My favorite teams are the Yankees and the Mets.

My favorite player of all time, however, never played for either of those teams (he played for the Padres and Giants): Dave Dravecky.



If I had to pick my favorite Yankees and Mets, though?

Yankees - Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada, Andy Pettitte
Mets - Matt Harvey, David Wright, Keith Hernandez, Gary Carter

Re: Favorite sports teams and sports personalities

I'm mainly a baseball guy, and am a fan of the Rockies and the Twins (mainly because I hate myself). My favorite players are George Brett, Cal Ripken Jr., Kirby Puckett, Tony Gwynn. I watch the Denver Broncos, and some Colorado Avalanche, but admitedly I don't know all that much about football and hockey compared to baseball.

Re: Favorite sports teams and sports personalities

I'm a huge baseball fan, followed by hockey, then football, then soccer, and never basketball.

Baseball - Oakland A's (I've been a fan since birth)
Hockey - Boston Bruins (a Bruins fan made me a hockey fan a bunch of years ago)
Football - Detroit Lions (since Suh was drafted. It's a hard-knock life)
Soccer - Manchester City, Seattle Sounders (logo-based choices a few seasons back)

My favorite personalities are not players, but radio people. Mike Golic, Mike Greenberg, and Stephen A. Smith.

Re: Favorite sports teams and sports personalities

The only American sport I followed (and it was years ago) was NBA, around the time of Michael Jordan's peak. I mostly followed the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks, but I did have a fondness for Boston Celtics too.

I used to hear a bit about college football too, as a friend of mine worked at the University of Notre Dame and he was always telling me how the Fighting Irish were doing. He even gave me a jersey as a gift. It was several sizes too large.

As for other sports, I mostly follow soccer, and I'm a supporter of Juventus FC. I don't have "favourite personalities", but I respect players like Alessandro Del Piero and Fabio Cannavaro who can make a long, successful careers without getting involved in scandals and other silly shenanigans.

I watch the odd motorsport race, too, and I usually root for Ferrari (F1) and Ducati (MotoGP and Superbike): my father used to work for the former and now works for the latter, so it's all in the family. I make an exception for Yamaha, tho, as I love Valentino Rossi.

I rarely follow other sports (at the national level at least, I love rugby but I usually follow only the international stuff like Six Nations and World Cup), but when it happens I usually root for my local team (for example Virtus Bologna-- basketball, or Reno Bologna-- rugby).

While I'm a Giants fan, It's nice to see another A's fan on here. Do you want to see the team go to San Jose or try to stay in Oakland. I just wish the A's got a new Owner and try to make the Oakland thing work. I'm not really fond of Joe Lacob becoming new owner (Since he has work with the Warriors) but his idea of a stadium near the shipyard is a really good one.

Knicks-Bulls playoff games of the early 90's were awesome. And I say that as a guy who grew up on the wrong side of that argument.
