I get into this argument a lot with my friends and in some cases its fair to rib me a little bit about my favorite teams. I 'm from Nashville home of the Titans,Predators and Vanderbilt University also the University of Tennessee (who i do support go vols!) and the University of Memphis. Now here is the thing, I have always been a big Vols fan even amid a tough stretch for us here in football but our basketball programs are doing very well. When it comes down to the rest of those named teams no so much. I tend to follow more branded teams like the Dallas Cowboys, Boston Red Sox, and the North Carolina Tar Heels. For some reason those are just my teams I defend those teams like I am from those towns. You guys should see me with either my Tony Romo jersey at the Titans games or my Carolina blue jersey at the Vandy games, talk about awkward ( i will upload those pics when i get a chance). I have been called more than a few four letter words (nothing worse in my opinion than a drunk Titans fan) but something has to be said for a person that sticks by their team. Even if your in a place that will despise you every time you make it known.
What do you guys think? I know i am not the only one who has favorite team outside of his hometown. What is a team that you support despite not being in that city? Please let me know if your a big time rivalry city going for the other team example in Michigan going for Ohio State ( These types are always the best!)
