    He’s a football fan, I’m a hockey and baseball fan.  I cheer for his football team (Titans) cause I don’t care, and I cheer for my hockey (red wings) and baseball (Dodgers) teams.  And for my Alma Mater (Fresno State) in NCAA sports.

    THough if we did like the same sports, I would keep my teams…some competition is good!!

    We’re from Ohio, and he’s one of those weird Ohioans who isn’t into Ohio State football. I’ve been trying (and failing) to convert him since we started dating.

    At football-watching get togethers with my family, he takes great joy in sitting quietly on the couch and smiling whenever we moan and scream at the TV.

    I am a Yankees fan, but Mrs. Bee doesn’t like them!  Now that Joe Torre is coaching the Dodgers, I wouldn’t mind rooting for them… but not if they’re playing the Yankees.

    We’re both from Boston, so we root for the same teams! 🙂

    Go Sox, C’s, Pats and B’s!

    Toucs – I have to confess, I don’t know if I could have married Bee if she was a Boston fan.  I’d like to think that I am bigger than that, but maybe not haha!

    hahahaha, Mr. Bee! I’m totally not big enough either!!

    I really do respect all fans, and even have friends who root for the Yanks–but I never could watch games on a regular basis with. I remember Game 7 in 2003 vividly (and only can talk about it now because of 2004 & 2007). Mr. Toucan’s frat was having a recruitment party. The Boston fans were holed up in one room with the door locked sulking… we weren’t so social that night. That’s the night when I was so thankful Mr. T wasn’t a rival fan. With BOS/NYY, the winner can’t help but gloat, and the loser can’t help but sulk. I honestly don’t know how rival fans can be couples!

    I’m with Mr. Bee on this one.  Thankfully, Boy and I have the same teams because I don’t think we could get married otherwise!  We actually bonded over it when we first started dating.  We are both 49ers fans in addition to our local team (who choked in the NFC championship…) and we had a long convorsation about how we are east coasters who love a west coast team. 

    He has definitely gotten me more into hockey, though.  We’ve been to so many Flyers games that he admitted to wanting to propose at one!

    I’m from Baltimore, so I root for the Ravens. Since DC only recently got a professional baseball team, he grew up loving the Orioles, so we’re even there. He’s a Redskins fan and I root for them…unless they’re playing the Ravens!

    I’m lucky here… because niether of us really cares a lot about sports. He understands them more than I do, but I think that’s a combination "guy thing" and a lot of his family care about them… at least, more than mine does. (We really keep our heads in the sand about sports – his GRANDMA had to tell me who’s playingin the super bowl! lol)

    What a great thread!  My Fiance LOVES the Greenbay Packers.  I LOVE the Denver Broncos.  We always joke about which team is better, and it’s even a running joke that my family will let me marry him despite his choice of team!!

    Just last night he was giving me a hard time that our wedding will be "Packers colors."  I told him that’s because if it was in Broncos colors I’d shoot myself.  (Catholic school has made me hate Navy blue formal wear.)

    As long as our teams aren’t playing each other, we root for each other’s teams.  But in a head to head match?  LOL  Hasn’t happened since 1998 and we all know how THAT turned out!

    GO BRONCOS!!! [attachment=113878,2547]

    We are both NY Jets fans, thank goodness.  It makes the indelible frustration that much easier.

    my fi doesn’t like sports, so it’s a little role reversal there.

    he half-heartedly supports the padres (and I’m am a big chicago cubs/bears fan!), but other than that, he hates whatever sport I watch!
