    Who is, are your team(s)?
    What is your sport?
    This is an international site, so there should be very diverse responses, looking forward to hearing from the four corners!

    #1
    Toronto Maple Leafs - NHL
    I grew up on Hockey, and am a died in the wool Toronto Maple Leafs fan. Even though I am 57, I do not remember the last Stanley Cup win in 1967, I was 5. This is a very exciting time to be a Leaf fan, they are a very exciting team to watch right now.

    #2
    Pittsburgh Steelers - NFL
    I have always been a fan of NFL football, but only pledged allegiance to the Pittsburgh Steelers after their 2008 Superbowl win. I was cheering for them that day, and have been all in since. I have seen them in Pittsburgh twice, in Buffalo once, and once in Detroit as well.

    #3
    Toronto Blue Jays - MLB
    Since their inception in 1977 I have been a fan, their two World Series wins in 92&93 were very exciting times. Since then there has not been much to be excited about, but they are my MLB team.

    The rest...
    Toronto Raptors - NBA
    Toronto FC - MLS
    Michigan Wolverines - US College Football

    I don't watch professional sports, the only team I cheer for is my oldest son's water polo team, Montreal Machine Water Polo. They won bronze at last season's national competition. gavinsave.jpg

    Not so big into sports as I used to be back a few years but if you've heard of Rugby League different to rugby Union by a bit.
    My team is North Queensland Cowboys thryve only in last 10 years joined the comp and have come away with a premiership win 2 years back against my 2nd fav them Brisbane Broncos.

    Love Cricket but Aussies arnt at top of their game atm because we lost two key players due to cheating against the South Africans ball tampering... nawtee nawtee

    Don't mind watching the Tennis with the Australian open on in Melbourne again it's tennis time again hopefully we can make a semi final :rolleyes:.

    Go to a couple of the Griz games every year.
    They are loud and fun and the tailgaiting is a kick.

    We also keep up with Gonzaga basketball
    GU in Spokane WA
    Looking for final four action this year, fingers crossed.


    I like Green Bay
    She likes the Cowboys
    But don't watch pro as much anymore. Spoiled brats with to much money.

    I desperately want to cheer for the Edmonton Oilers again but it's like watching a tire fire implode.
    CFL - Eskimos I guess
    Premier League would be Arsenal, just cause I think the jersey's are cool.

    I'm more a play sports than watch sports person.

    Broncos were a dumpster fire this year. Rockies made it into the NL West playoffs and almost as quickly, out of them. Nuggets are doing pretty well, as are the Avalanche. But I'm the fairest of fair-weather fans, I think I watched the last four minutes of the Broncos' last Superbowl.

    It is pronounced Row Notch, but when you pronounce row, say it like wow. Both he and Shapavalov are still alive. The two Canadian girls lost their matches

    It is unfortunate that other teams even exist, but because they do, they often get the better of:
    The Bills
    The Sabres
    The Syracuse Orange
    Atlanta United FC
    FC Barcelona
    And The US men's and women's National Soccer Teams

    We are a rabid Chicago bears football family and you can find all of us in full team gear every gameday during/after football season.
    On the college scene we bleed crimson and gold for our Iowa State Cyclones
