    For me, it's American Football all the way. I'm more a fan of college football than NFL and am a Texas Longhorns fan.

    NFL wise, I'm more a fan of players than teams and will follow the teams that have players I like more. If I had to pick teams, it would either be New Orleans Saints or San Francisco 49ers. Can't stand the Cowboys.

    Football is my favorite sport, and I'm usually just a Chicago team fan, but I'll list em all......

    I'm a die-hard Chicago Bears fan, and have been since I was in grade school. It's just something about the legacy of the Bears, and how they were one of the originals. It's not to say that I agree with a lot of stuff they did/are doing, personnel-wise, but getting rid of Angelo was a HUGE start. Brian Urlacher is hands down one helluva player and the best hidden gem the Bears drafted. I'm not a big Cutler fan, but we'll see how it plays out this year with his thumb healed. A huge plus for me as far as the Bears go....I get to work a LOT of Bears home games so get to see a lot of stuff up-close and personal. Not so much meeting the players and stuff, as that is not in the cards, and certainly not part of my role when working Risk Management and Life Hazard. The view from the sidelines is incomparable, though I'm not on the sidelines often. But my role when working there allows me access to areas most folks could only dream of.

    Yes, I'm also a Chicago Cubs fan, so used to heartbreak that I'm now numb to it. To put things in perspective, my Grandmother was 2 years old when the Cubs last won a World Series, and she hopes that they win another before she dies, as she'll be 106 this year! I don't want to break her heart so I don't tell her that it may be another 100 years before they actually have a chance at winning. I'm hoping that dream she has is part of what keeps her going, still in her own house, and with all her wits about her at the young age of 105!

    I'm also a Chicago White Sox fan, and am particularly glad that Ozzie is gone to Florida. Yeah, he brought us a World Series title, but his tone, and abrasiveness never made me a fan of his. Robin Ventura is quite the gentleman, and I'm hoping his persona is what helps drive his team to the playoffs.

    I'm not a soccer fan, don't understand it very well and never follow it.

    Golf, I love it, play it, am very good at it, and wish I was young enough again to try out for the PGA. I'll have to get my kids into that. Great money, and no contact!

    I'm not a huge College sport fan, but to list a couple that interest me....

    Duke is by far one of my favorite College basketball teams! The coach, Mike Krzyzewski, is not only a fantastic person, but is a "grades first, basketball second" coach! He stresses the importance that the players got to Duke on scholarship for their abilities in basketball, but that they need to keep that scholarship by excelling with their grades. Anyone found to be under-performing with their grades, did not play. As a side note, I got to have lunch with "the Coach", at one firehouse I used to go to, because his brother was a Captain on the Chicago Fire Department! Not only did we have lunch, but he sat and talked, took pictures with us, and just wanted to "shoot the breeze". What a great guy!

    I like Big Ten Football, though it's a toss-up between Michigan and Illinois for favorite team. My younger brother is an alumni of Illinois, and is a die-hard Illini fan, often tossing it in his wife's face, who is a die-hard Tennessee Fan, even though they're in different Conferences. So I tend to side with him for his "protection" when watching Illinois.

    Hockey isn't a big sport for me, though I truly like the Blackhawks!

    You now have another reason to like Boise State Kev. Hopefully, he's like Urlacher, with his versatility.

    I'm a fan of many sports none of which are the traditional ones, (football, baseball, basketball, etc). I've been a golf fan since I was a kid. I love the sport of diving because I trained for it for 8 years and coached for another 8. I am a huge fan of the Olympics and most of those sports. I like martial arts. I've done a few throughout my life for a time, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu being the most recent. That also makes me an MMA fan. I like training in sports rather than just watching them. Right now I am training for my second Spartan Race in September.
