Mostly-baseball we both like the Indians, basketball is the Cavaliers, and hockey we both like the Penguins. But football-I’m a Cleveland Browns fan and he’s a Steelers fan.

mm, sorta. The only sport either of is really cares for is baseball, and at heart I’m a White Sox fan, but I don’t mind rooting for the Yankees as long as they aren’t playing the white sox lol I suppose wrestling doesn’t quite count? We like different wrestlers lol

Oooh we differ in baseball SO bad! He loves the Cincinnati Reds and I am an Atlanta Braves girl through and through. Neither one of us care about pro or college football, but basketball we both like the UK Wildcats (I graduated from there and he grew up in Lexington).

I’m the bigger sports fan, but Fiance has definitely hopped the bandwagon and roots for my teams which makes me happy… especially when it comes to living in Dallas and being and Eagles fan (born in Philly)

No, my Fiance is from the Boston area and I’m from Minneapolis. He loves all Boston sports teams (especially the Sox, sorry Mr Bee) and I love all MN teams (especially the Twins). I’ve made him into a pseudo-Twins and Vikings fan (neither of us are big into basketball or hockey) but I have yet to jump on the Sox bandwagon and I don’t really care for the Pats, either.

Thank goodness we cheer on the same teams.  Before we started dated, I remember finding a NY J-E-T-S hat in his car.  I knew he was a keeper.

Oh and: GO LEAFS GO!

We’re both originally from MS (near Memphis) and we love Ole Miss but neither of us went there.  My sis, bil and rest of family did so it’s my “default” SEC team and we both claim that as our SEC team.

But I am really a Univ. of Memphis Tiger at heart…heck was their featured twirler there and T went to Emory.  Neither are football powerhouses (and Emory doesn’t even have a football team) but U of M certainly has a wicked basketball team and we always have had the greatest halftimes in the world!

T loves the Redwings for Hockey (he used to play and was Can Am).  I just cheer for whichever hockey team he likes.  I love to watch it!

Yes! We both love the Cowboys, and I never really cared about basketball until he took me to a Mavericks game, and now they’re my team! My family all roots for the Spurs, so it has been a huge problem for them, lol!

@MzThrowBac2B – I saw you’re from Bryan – I’m in College Station! 🙂

We are both Mets fans.  It makes life easier.  Husband’s sister is in a Mets/Yankees marriage and it gets very sticky.  Any boys will be raised Yankee, any girls, Mets.  All will be Catholic, I think.
