Packers, Brewers, Bucks for pro sports. The Texans are my AFC team tho. They are loaded with Badgers. And considering I'm a Wisconsin alumni I always cheer for the Badgers in any sports. Even dumb ones like hockey!

My favorite sport to play is basketball by far. The apartment complex I moved into has basketball courts, so I'm dying for warmer weather to come so I can get out there. I also like playing tennis if I can find someone of equal skill level.

Angels, Lakers, and Cowboys for me. Though the last two have been giving me nothing but trouble so far. I don't play much now since it's hard to get enough of my buds together, but I always love those rare times the guys from my old lacrosse team get together to play, it's my favorite to play.

49ers, Suns and the Braves are my teams. Still bummed about that fucking SuperBowl but we should be good going into next year hopefully. The Suns are just a lost cause at the moment.

Its funny because I just played basketball for the first time in a while a few days ago. I was surprised by how good I still was haha. But damn did it leave me sore afterwards. Guess that means I need to start working out again and getting back in shape. Anyway basketball is by far my favorite sport to play but football has become my favorite to watch.

Philly sports for everything except basketball because I don't care about basketball. I played hockey most of my life and its probably my favorite sport right behind football. Excited to get baseball back in a few weeks.

And we're definitely going to need a thread dedicated to football.

Let's see... Detroit Lions, Detroit Tigers, Detroit Red Wings... So, you know, two out of three ain't bad. If I gave a shit about basketball, I suppose I'd like the Lakers, because the Pistons are fucking terrible.

A football thread, yes.

Pretty much the only sports I watch are the Vancouver Canucks.

I play intramural floor hockey with some random people I met. And intramural soccer with other engineers; damn do we get excited when we get even close to winning.

AC Milan. Besides Neph, I'm probably the only one that follows soccer, and to be honest I'm not even sure if he follows soccer. He plays the sport, that is all that I really know. They're going through a rebuilding phase, so what that means is they suck. They did however take down the mighty Barcelona in the Champions League. When it comes to international teams I root for Italy, and then after that any country that has a Milan player. The Milan derby is tomorrow, but I doubt anyone knows what that means. Forza Milan!

Being a Michigander I'll root for the Michigan teams. I love Detroit Red Wings hockey, but the salary cap made the game boring in my opinion, especially since my team spent for players. AFter that I like the Patriots and the Lions, but I don't really care about basketball or baseball. If I picked a basketball team it would be the Miami Heat, because I think James is a really great basketball player and I would pick him over Jordan because he's a team player.

My teams are the Philadelphia Eagles and 76ers for the pros. And the Florida State Seminoles and Syracuse Orangemen (I haven't and will not except just calling them the Orange) for basketball. I don't watch the other sports much.

I did play football in high school. I was captain and played guard on offense and Defensive End/Linebacker on defense. That was like ten years ago though. I play some pickup basketball occasionally still and am back into powerlifting, but otherwise I don't play many sports these days. I loved Skateboarding when I was in Junior High and early High School. I wasn't great, but could do basic stuff and a couple cool tricks. My most memorable tricks were probably a darkslide and this double kickflip I did on a ramp. I also jumped BMX bikes a bit too, but was really no good at that.

Who are you hoping we grab in the draft, Trip? I'm praying Jarvis Jones falls to the fourth pick. Especially if we really are switching to a 3-4, we're going to need some linebackers.

I hope/assume we're doing a NCAA bracket again this year? It's less than a month away!

Let's see if I can resist the temptation to put my Badgers in the Final Four this year?

...probably not

Oops... sorry I missed this post somehow. I am not sure who I want, but it seems we probably will switch to a 3-4, so Linebackers are definitely a need. I must say I've always been more of a 4 man front guy. I get the advantages of the 3-4, but my heart hasn't given in to it yet. Still a 4-3 guy myself.

And yes I'm all in for NCAA tourney thing again.

Sorry Bret. I usually put my life on hold for the Eurocup and World Cup (I usually take an extended period off work to watch) but otherwise I find it too hard/inconvenient to follow soccer regularly despite loving the sport.

The lockout just soured me more on hockey and I haven't watched more than 2 minutes of an Oilers game since. I live in Canada so everyone bleeds hockey and it's fucking annoying.

NFL is my sport of choice and the Steelers are my team... although I kind of hate their team now.

As for sports I've played/play: I ran track internationally and for my University team. I've played soccer my whole life and at the highest Canadian level (which I guess could qualify as semi-pro because whenever our city had a professional soccer team they just pulled people from the top tier of men's soccer). I was captain of my football team at runningback, slotback and outside linebacker (It's Canadian High School football... so the equivalent of elementary school in the states. One year we travelled to LA and lost like 50 to 0 to a team that had a 23 game losing streak or something.) Now I just still play high level soccer, pick up soccer and co-ed rec soccer. As much soccer as I can get before my body gives out.

It's easy to follow soccer when you really follow one team. I'll go to sites to see what is happening with other teams/leagues, but I only devote my time to watching Milan. It was a great match watching them take down Barcelona in the Champions League a week ago.

Yeah but I don't even have much time to follow football news. I usually just have the tv on in the background all Sunday. So soccer is just too tought to follow if I have to make any effort.

And pspiddy I'm a little full of shit. I always brag about playing Major league soccer but in reality it was only a half season. I've always just played Premier or Div 1 (the second and third highest leagues). I even played with my law school friends in the bottom league and sandbagged for a couple years. I was the highest per game goal scorer in the league last season.

Does the World's Strongest Man prove his title by pulling a truck with his teeth? If so, I'm all in for that - I also look forward to his 30 For 30 episode prior to the show.

Me and Matt seem to be the only ones to fill out a bracket for March Madness. I am using the same group as last year on CBS. Here is a link to the group:

http://pspeeps.mayhem.cbssports.com/e

The password is: playstation

Please join if you are interested. It is just for fun. Apologies if you didn't get an email. I thought it just emailed everyone automatically each year to be honest.
