    let’s see…

    FH, being born and raised in DC, is a die-hard Redskins fan. I was raised in TX… HOUSTON, TEXAS. So I was an original Oilers fan before they moved to Tennesee (boo that). And then we got the Texans and because I was so extremly bitter about the Oilers abandoning me (still am), I became a Texans fan. But then I met and fell in love with FH and adopted his team. I am now a die-hard Redskins fan too. I still love my Texans though.

    Funny note… don’t know if anyone here knows of the Redskins & Cowboys rivalry but… when FH first met me and found out that I was a huge football fan and from TX the first thing he asked me was "Are you a Cowboys fan?" And when I said "H*ll no!" (I really have a severe hatred for the Cowboys) he said "Aiight. We’re good." ๐Ÿ˜‰  Now that I think about it… if I WERE a Cowboys fan, would FH really have passed me up???

    • Wedding: September 2008

    We both grew up in Seattle so we share the same pro teams.  My husband LOVES sports…especially football.  His family has had season tickets forever.  I was just a casual fan until I met my husband, now I’m crazy for the Seahaws (so sad we had a terrible year, but I can’t wait for next year!) and he is so proud. 

    Our college teams never play each other, so he’ll cheer for my UW Huskies and I’ll cheer for his Duke Blue Devils…he says hell never let our kids go to UNC and I say they’ll never go to WSU.  I think it’s so funny when couples from rival colleges get married…fortunately we don’t have to deal with that ๐Ÿ™‚

    Woah Mr. Bee hating on Boston?!?!  Man!!


    We have more of a college football issue in our relationship!  We’re big ACC football rivals Virginia Tech (him) and Boston College (me) (ugh to BC losing 2 ACC championships in a row!!)  

    We say we "break up" every time we play each other for 24 hours, 12 hours before and after kickoff. Everyone makes a big joke of it — we even have a section on our wedding website about it that I think is so funny.  Last season we hosted 18 of his Hokie fans at my parents house for the weekend of the BC vs VT game — thankfully BC won!!  It was a blast.  Other then when we play each other — we root for each others teams. My family goes to all the BC games and I’ve been to Lane stadium a few times. It’s so fun!

    I am not hating on Boston! I was proud of the Sox for breaking the Curse.

    I’ve just had some really negative experience with Boston fans.  I never rub it in when my teams are winning…  I am not a fan of unsolicited smack talk.  It’s fun when it’s between friends, but the fan rivalry is too much for me!

    Eh I could care less about sports… But when it comes to my Bruins- don’t mess with me! I get full on into my Bruin Spirit wear and cheer my bum off! 

    I think my man has changed his team sport for me. He is such an east coaster (but transplanted to SoCal) Whats cute about my man, is he loves every sport. College/Pros. He wears his UNC sports wear, then his UVA sportswear- and then when I came into the picture he now weats UCLA colors- all depending on what game he is watching (basketball, football…), and I love that! –but I hate that he supports USC football. grrr.

    We both cheer for both of our teams.

    My Fiance has lived in Boston all his life and has always been into the Sox and Patriots.  I cheer for the Sox but am inherently annoyed by the Patriots…but I don’t watch or like football, so whatever happens, happens.

    I grew up in Philly with a family who was all about the sports.  I was never hugely interested in sports, but I always knew what was going with them because my dad and brothers were so into it.  I was extremely happy to see the Phillies win the Series this year because I knew it would make the city so happy.

    My Fiance loves my family, so he’s happy when the Philly teams do well, because he knows it’ll make my fam happy.  My dad loves my Fiance to pieces, so he’s always happy when Boston teams do well.

    My FH is not "into" sports, so it is not much of an issue.  Also, I prefer college sports to the professional teams, so I can cheer for "my" team (‘SC) and "his" team (USMA) too.  There is no real competition between the two schools.  Now, if he had gone to UT or LSU or UCLA . . . Well, then it would be good that he does not like sports!

    My Fiance plays arena football and coaches high school football, basketball and track.  However, I could care less about sports.  I’ve never been into sports, but I do attend his football games. He plays better when I’m watching, he likes to show off.  He also likes to talk about the game and plays to me like I understand what he is saying.  Although my honie plays sports, he does not watch them on tv. I truly love that, cause I could not handle my tv time being taken away by a football or basketball game.

    This is a soft spot for me and Fiance. He is from New England and loves his Sox and Pats. I am  NYer and a Mets/Giants fan who lived in Boston for awhile. Let’s just say when I left I was not a fan and very much root against his teams now. He hates it. I will say though that I said nothing after last year’s Superbowl. I was very nice about it and made sure to comfort him. I love him more than the Giants ๐Ÿ™‚

    We root for SEC football.  As long as Auburn isn’t playing Mississippi State, we’re ok.
