I so look forward to the day that all the northerners that move to Florida (by choice) embrace Florida teams as though they are your first choice. Florida needs people with state pride and proud to be from Florida, supporting hometown teams.

Not judging all, but we all know that many from the northern states come down and still love their northern team.

You moved to Florida for a reason, embrace it and love the hometown teams!

Many of them are diehard fans and won't ever adopt the local teams. They lived and died with the success/failures of their teams and can't just abandon their old city's team - but doesn't mean they have to be major douchebags in our stadiums/arenas.

I love the Tampa Bay Lightning! The only thing missing from them is a few more crazy fans : )

So proud of our team! Possible two Stanley Cup wins in two years -- a beautiful tropical beach city with no winter.... talk about defying the odds. I don't care if the players are from here, they definitely are grateful for being here. I just ran into a mom of a Predators player in Nashville -- she said, "IF only her son would be transferred to Tampa, what a beautiful city!" I agree! Go Bolts!

My husband and son are big time Tampa team fans since moving here in'97...however my sil and bil (been here since '04) along with their kids are Yankee,Giant, Knicks and Rangers fans...It's strange how some people adopt the new home team while others hold on to the past...

I've been watching and supporting the Lightning. I won't abandon teams I've supported for nearly 40 years, but I'll definitely support the local teams.

The obvious conflict will be when they play each other, of course.
