Teams supported in other sports
What other teams do you all support in other sports, and why? I am not massively passionate about other teams, but I have a few rooting interests, and would be interested to hear others.
Ice hockey: Colorado Avalanche and Vegas Golden Knights.
NFL: Carolina Panthers (Cincinnati Bengals as a kid)
For Ice hockey, I lived in Vegas many years and my wife is from there, but we moved to Denver days before the first ever Vegas game. I have therefore seen far more Colorado games live, and my kids were born here too, so it is a split, leaning Colorado now.
For the NFL, I picked Cincinnati as a kid owing to those cool tiger helmets. However, Carolina entered the league in the mid 1990s, and my mother is from North Carolina originally, so I had to jump ship. I've seen a few Panthers games live, including one out at their home in Charlotte, but I have not really watched the NFL much in recent years, so my interest in the team has waned. Ironically, I ended up living in Columbus, Ohio for a while in 2005-2007, so if I had kept my Bengals interest, I could have easily taken myself to some games.
Besides that, interest tends to be more along the lines of looking up results without really being a fan.
Rugby Union: I always looked for the results of London Irish, as my dad was born and grew up in London to Irish parents.
Rugby League: I have randomly always hoped Warrington do well.
Cricket: Even more randomly, I always used to "support" Derbyshire as a kid, despite never having been there. Nowadays I fel sympathetic to a few clubs, including Somerset owing to their continuing rotten luck in achieving a first ever county championship. Similarly, I hope Gloucestershire and Northamptonshire somehow win it someday (though Gloucestershire won it a bunch back in the unofficial days of the 1800s).
