Official list of teams you support

Having seen Bandage part company with the Galaxy today and the Jets during the the Super Bowl run-in I noted there has been a lot of activity in the teams we all follow. Might be useful if everyone tracked their official list on this thread and updated as necessary.

As of March 9, 2012 my teams are as follows:

Football

  1. New York Football Giants
  2. [Open position for whoever Peyton Manning signs for]

Basketball

  1. New York Knicks

Ice Hockey

  1. New York Rangers

Association Football

  1. Arsenal FC
  2. Rep. of Ireland
  3. New York Red Bulls
  4. Bristol City
  5. Luton Town
  6. Wexford Youths FC

Baseball

  1. New York Mets

Gaelic Games

  1. Wexford

For the moment that’s it for me. Obviously the list will be reviewed constantly and evolve with the success/failure of each team/franchise.

Good idea for a thread, Brian.

Why Bristol City and Luton, Brian? I’d be interested to hear the storied behind the passion on this thread.

This wavering in support of teams is ridiculous but seems only to be a eastern sea board thing… Growing up a west Brit and the confusion about where your loyalties should be must have been tough and a major factor in your gee- bagness .

Teams I support:

Football:
Celtic Football Club
Italy
AS Roma
Ireland

Tennis:
Team Rafa Nadal

Teams I look out for:

Napoli
Livorno
Athletic Bilbao
Real Madrid
Werder Bremen
Derrytresk
CD O’Higgins
Shamrock Rovers

Cork GAA. ‘Support’ means you get off your ass and actually support the team btw.

Like going to Croke Park?

Yes MBB.

Luton Town as, like most of the population of this country, I have relatives there. I vaguely remember watching them playing when I was very young, the famous Milk Cup victory etc. Always had a Luton poster on my wall growing up. They’ll always have a place in my heart.

Bristol City as I dated a girl from the West Country for five years and would attend 4 to 5 games a season with her father who was a season ticket holder, a thoroughly alright sort he was too whom I had a huge amount of personal and professional respect for.

So you’ve only been really supporting for 2 years or so then.

Yes, 2, plus the other 15 or so years.

Why didn’t that end up in marriage, Brian? I couldn’t think of anything better than marrying into a family where you attend a league fixture most weeks with the father in law, with all the pies and ale that involves.

While no one ever asked me why I support Huddersfield, I’d like to relate the story of going to see them when I was 11 in Monkstown and due to my father working with the club secretary of TEK United, getting all the autographs. Fantastically, one of the Town centre halves that day was an Irish lad from Ballyfermot who I now work alongside. I showed him the match programme and his autograph and I could sense he was almost teary eyed. He’s a member of Bucko’s backroom team now for Pats when he’s not in work. Small oul world.

Not my place to answer that but I sure hope Tinnion does, naming names.
