For those of you who follow football and have a favorite team, who’s your team?
Being from Minnesota, I’ve grown up a huge Vikings fan. 2nd favorite team would have to be the Patriots.
@kidd, The Cleveland All America Football Conference franchise conducted a fan contest in 1945 to name the team. The most popular submission was “Browns” in recognition of the team’s first coach and general manager Paul Brown. At first, Brown vetoed the choice and the team selected from the contest entries the name “Panthers.” However, after an area businessman informed the team that he owned the rights to the name Cleveland Panthers from an earlier failed football team, Brown rescinded his objection and agreed to the use of his name.
I am a Patriots fan, born and raised. Although I’m kind of embarrassed by the last two games. I’m glad I didn’t watch them, though, because I would not have been able to get any of my work done afterward! @sumtinprophetic, I’m the same way about the Jets and Giants – I’ll root for anyone playing against them! [Also, why isn’t it the New Jersey Giants? Isn’t their field in New Jersey, and NOT New York? Just sayin’ …]
