I'm from Ohio originally. I like the Reds/Bengals/Cavs/Buckeyes/Blue Jackets.

Post your fav. teams. Kinda curious to see how many people out there like teams that aren't in Pittsburgh.

If I end up moving to Pittsburgh. I'll always be a San Jose Sharks, Oakland A's, Raiders/9ers fan first!

That means if Pittsburgh plays San Jose (NHL) in the playoffs, I'll be wearing my Thornton jersey.

My husband grew up in RI and is a diehard Sox fan. He doesn't follow football or hockey as much, though, so he's happy to root for the Steelers and Pens when it comes up.

I'm from Central Florida, so my favorite teams are the Tampa Bay Bucs, Tampa Bay Rays, Orlando Magic and USF Bulls. I'm trying to get on the Steeler bandwagon, but I'm finding that it's hard to let go of the teams I grew up with. I end up going on the computer or doing something else when the Steeler game is on, I just don't care about them that much yet, not sure if I ever will.

The only non Pittsburgh team I root for is the Boston Celtics, although I had a hard finding anyone who cared about the NBA when I lived in Pittsburgh.

I am a Baltimore Ravens fan and feel sooooo alone here.

I grew up in Virginia where nearly everyone was a
Redskins fan. Being the deviant that I am I looked around as a young child and decided that I would become a Baltimore fan. I loved the Colts until they bolted for Indiana. I tried on many teams after they left but none ever felt right. I was so glad when the Ravens emerged. Several years later I married a military man and we settle in Pittsburgh when he retired from the military. I stand proud in all my Baltimore Ravens glory amongst the obsession that is the Steelers.
