What Professional Sports Teams do people in Tallahassee follow?

For MLB, NBA, NFL and Hockey?

I'm kind of guessing it could be mostly between Atlanta and Tampa, with the occasional Orlando or JAX team out there...but until I ask, I just wouldn't know.

What all do you guys follow for sports franchises, in the Tallahassee area?

There are a lot of transplants from SoFla in Tallahassee, so the Miami teams have a significant following (Dolphins, Heat, Marlins). The TB teams have a following too, since they are generally the closest geographically.

From my time living there, I don't recall seeing many Atl team logos, with the exception of the Braves, who have a following throughout the South.

Before the growth of professional sports in south/central Florida (apart from the Dolphins), the Atlanta teams were televised locally. I grew up in Tallahassee as a child in the 1970's and 1980's. I remember the Dolphins were the AFC team for local TV (NBC back then), and the Falcons were the NFC team (CBS back then), and this was even after the Bucs. Probably changed to Bucs/Jags in the 1990's.

The Braves had a national following due to Ted Turner, but I also listened to the Braves radio broadcasts back in the day in Tallahassee. Before the Marlins/Rays, Tallahassee was absolutely a Braves town, but not any more.

I grew up in Tallahassee in the 80s and early 90s. Any connection to a professional sports team back then was tenuous at best. I remember seeing a lot of Braves on TV during the Dale Murphy era. But pro football was an afterthought given the height of FSU football and the fact that the Bucs, Saints, and Falcons generally stunk and the Jags didn't exist. NFL just seemed like a letdown after FSU played on Saturday.

I know a lot of people follow Orlando City for MLS.

Braves for baseball

NBA is usually Miami Heat.

NFL is definitely Jags and Bucs.

Honestly College sports are more interesting to me.
