Fun Monday 09.22.08

This week's Fun Monday is being hosted by Heather's Recipes.

The Rules:

The topic: Sports. More specifically, the sports team that you are rabid about. Maybe you love the Dallas Cowboys. Maybe you never miss a Cincinnati Reds game. Perhaps you follow every goal of the Fighting Illini Water Polo team. Or maybe nobody can tear you away from a Manchester United game. I want to hear about whatever sports team(s) that make you cry tears of joy when they win and tears of sorrow when they lose.

And on the flip side, I also want to hear about the teams you love to hate and why you hate them so much. You know what I mean. Like when you meet a new friend who is really cool and fun, and then you find out they root for your most hated rival team and you actually consider for a moment that you can't be friends anymore. Those teams.

That's it. And if you don't like any sports at all, I don't know what to say to you. Tell us something else you are impassioned about

Robocop's Comment:

I am not a die hard sports fan anymore. But given the opportunity, I can enjoy an occasional football game.

On my rare moments of NFL fanaticism, I am a New York Giants fan. Two silly reasons really. First, they are as close to my old hometown team I can get without having to root for the Buffalo Bills (the best Second Place Team the NFL has ever produced). Second, they made it to last years Superbowl, and the Dallas Cowboys did not.

As for a team I rally love to hate:

I hate the Dallas Cowboys. Why? Because a good number of them will probably end up being "customers" of mine. What a collection of thugs. Do you know what they call a dope deal in a stadium? A huddle. They are living proof that money will never change a street punk.

Well,that's it. Enjoy Fun Monday!

Interesting your comment about money. I think some professional sports people are paid way too much money. Especially in European football, or soccer as you call it. Think Mr Beckham for example

Oh ya baby!!! A collection of 'thugs'....LOVE IT!!!

Happy Fun Monday.

I don't know anything about them or other teams. Here in Europe everybody watches what you call soccer. Then people get crazy ! (not me)

Debs said...

I hate "The Boys". I hate that the tax payers are stuck helping to get their new stadium built. I think Jerry Jones is an idiot.

All sport figures get paid way too much money.

Heather said...

You are not the first to mention that the Dallas Cowboys team is full of scoundrels. I guess I don't follow other teams enough to know about all that.

Thanks for playing this week!

Alison said...

unfortunately they will probably not be your customers...with all their money and a good lawyer...

Love to hate the Cowboys!

All professional athletes make too much money. Its amazing what millions of dollars can turn into when in the hands of someone who has absolutely no self-control or guardrails on their life.

Thanks for sharing!

I am a die hard Flyers fan! They totally rock!! I'm patiently waiting for a Stanley Cup, I just hope I'm still alive and kicking to see it.

Yeah, the Cowboys take the cake of worst teams. I can't stand Terrell Owens! Glad he got out of Philly. Too cocky and arrogant for my taste.

The Jersey Devils bite too! We have the hardest time beating them! Notice I include myself in that.....LOL

My hubby is a BIG football fan, but the Dallas team is one that he can't stand.

So funny - I think that the Cowboys really bring on a "love 'em or Hate 'em" attitude with people. I don't like them either. I'm horrible with Football because I change my favorite team about every 5 years.

I always root for the Seahawks but they always let me down. So, I have to pick another team to support.
