Problem?

Your ease and process of selecting your team is funny. Like a Clown. Like "ha ha" funny.



Clown, huh? You're going to have to explain that one. I thought most people do root for either their local team, or the one that their parents did. Makes sense to me, but just for you, I'll summarize how I chose my teams.

49ers - SB 23 was basically my first memory, and there was no other team in the Bay Area.

Giants - I felt bad for them losing to the A's in the '89 WS, and them being in the same city as the niners, I leaned towards them rather than the A's. Like I wrote in another post, I don't care for Oakland.

Sharks - They're the only local team, SJ is close to me, and I've liked them since their emergence into the league.

Stanford - My dad got his masters there, and they're the school I rooted for while growing up.

Cal - I go here, so I have to root for them by default. A very large portion of my family are Cal alumni except my dad, so it makes things awkward when it comes to sports, but I like both schools.

I already wrote what I think of the Warriors, so I won't go into anything more than saying they're local. San Jose is also local for me, and when it comes to cities, I much prefer San Jose over Oakland. I'd feel like a POS being a Lakers fan, and since I'm not currently big into the NBA, I'd like to have the chance to have a team.

So tell me, what's so funny about wanting to have a local team to root for when I have no diehard feelings for any other one?

Holy s**t! Calm down, man. I was giving you s**t.


I couldn't care less who you root for. It was just funny. It's ok for things to be funny.

Giving s**t? Yeah, that's true. Was there anything in either post worth being funny? Not sure about that one, but whatever floats your boat.

It's well within the rules of fanhood to jump ship and root for another team if that other team is moving to your hometown.

Yeah well you're weird, you root for the Magic, 49ers, STL Cardinals. That's 3 states



I'm a Bay Area guy, South Bay guy and I only root for teams near my hometown

Niners/Giants/Sharks/Stanford fan



I seriously consider jumping ship to the San Jose Hornets over the Golden State Warriors


It's not like the Warriors deserve their fan base.

cardinals - grew up watching them
blues - grew up watching them
magic - no nba team in stl, love the nba..found a team i enjoyed and went w/ it
49ers- no nfl team in stl (at the time), love the nfl ..found a team i enjoyed and went w/ it
I'd consider dumping the Niners if they hire another Erickson/Nolan/Singletary.

Agreed. As long as he doesn't rename them the San Jose Oracles.
