This is a very random question, but I was just curious.......
What is everyone's favorite teams besides the Sox, or who could you see yourself rooting for if you moved to another city?
My order of fav. teams

1. Sox (my #1 team forever)
2. A's (young, exciting, fun to watch, AWESOME fans)
3. D-backs (saw 'em win it in game 7, now a fan)
4. Mets (have Robin, plus they hate the yanks)
5. Cards (our ally cub-haters)
6. Astros (became a 'stros fan this year, rooting against scrubs)

Indifferent to rest except......

27. Twinks (last year especially, but this might not be a problem now)
28. Yanks (have kept Sox from winning for ever)
29. Injuns (no explanation needed)
30. Scrubs (no explanation needed)

1. sox (duh)
2. mets (the sox of new york. nobody likes the park, all press goes to the other team in town, broke cub fan hearts in '69, robin, sox dont play em)
3. astros (helped ruin cubs in '01, like some players)
4. marlins (cliff floyd, CJ, good young players and pitchers)
5. dbacks (thank you dbacks)

25. yanks (make baseball boring)
26. tigers (cheap shots, robert flick, higgy, scrap iron, weaver, dean palmer)
27. mariners (really annoying fans, hate most of their players)
28. indians (sox rivals, hate their fans, hate their racist cartoon)
29. twins (stupid stadium, i hate doug mientkiewicz and his unnecassary dives so he can get on web gems and carl ravich can get a hard on, hate all of their players, hate their uniforms, hate the name "twins", hate their fans who all of a sudden show up at comiskey park when their team is doing kind of good, hate the twins fan who tried to start a fight with me for wearing a twins suck shirt at a sox game, hate everything about them, i will laugh histerically if the are contracted)
30. cubs (dont get me started)

1. Sox

2. Whoever's playing the Cubs


15. St. Louis. I hate La Russa, but the Cards did take care of the sCrUBS this year, so they are saved from my $#!+ list.


28. Cleveland. The mistake by the lake houses baseball's worst fans in the Jake.

29. Detroit. I hate Phil Garner and every player that took cheap shots in the brawl.

30. The Cubs. If only they could teach their trainer the Hymleck maneuver, maybe he could save them from choking. They said they brought in a new goat in 1998...I think his name was Brant Brown.

Mine would be any of the National League West teams. I can't stand the East teams in either league and I could never root for an American League team over the Sox if I moved.

1) White Sox
2) Houston Astos--Used to love those '80 rainbow uniforms as a kid, and lived in H-town to boot from '86-93, so I saw a lot of games at the Dome. Have not had a chance yet to go to Enron--should be a lot of fun next year!
3) Whoever is beating the Yankees in the World Series. That's it.

Who to hate:

1) Cleveland--Nuff said.
2) The Twinkies--see #1.
3) Yankees. Ugh.
4) Mariners--I really loved their tank-job in the offseason.
5) Dodgers--Sink LA and their latte-drinkning baseball club!

Faves

Least Faves

1. Cubs

1) Sox - No explanation needed
2) Whoever's playin' the Cubs
3) Reds - I remember that 1990 Reds/A's World Series... Awesomeness...
4) Cardinals - I loooooooooove the city

Im pretty much indifferent to the rest of the teams (except for the Special 3). My hatred of each team rises and falls moreso due to their recent history with the Sox. Like, back in the mid-90s, i HATED Toronto with a passion. Now I don't care.

The Special 3:
28. Indians - My favorite Comiskey chant: CLEVE-LAND SUCKS! CLEVE-LAND SUCKS!
29. Yankees
30. Flubbies

Well Johnson no I wouldn't hate him if he pitched for the Sox. Schilling I would still not like. He is one of my all time hate players. Don't ask why I just hate him. Johnson at least is fun to watch in the way he dominates hitters.

2. boston ... they seem to share the sox's post season luck + always liked their players (williams, yaz, etc)
3. minnesota ... killebrew and oliva fan from way back
4. cleveland ... again, going back, i was a colavito fan, vic wertz, etc. i don't like the current crop of players but hell, sometimes i don't like the sox players either. i like the fact they're a centrally located, often crapped on blue collar team who after years of frustration put together a team that was pretty dominant the last 10 years. at least their management TRIED!
(don't hate me cause i'm right) :)

2)Red Sox (you would understand)
3)Padres (seem like the chisox of the west, get no respect but play hard)
4)Mariners (just do)
5)Astros (fun to watch, in the regular season anyway)

26) Dodgers (blech)
27) Cubs (my hatred may not run as deep but they still annoy me)
28) Tigers (they deserve to keep losing)
29) Yankees (irritate the crap out of me)
30) Indians (bunch of arrogant *******s)

2) Royals (I know they're a division rival, but they're still cool)
3) A's (I've adopted them as my West Coast version of the Sox).
4) Padres (I liked their brown unis better)
5) Expos (Montreal doesn't deserve a franchise that good).

27) Rockies (there should not be baseball at that altitude)
28) Giants (two words - Barry Bonds. I hate that guy)
29) Yankees (duh)
30) Cubs (double duh)

The Sox are pretty much it for me. (What a pathetic existence it is being a full-time Sox Fan).

I used to like Detroit but gave that up after they hired Garner.

Everybody else is measured strictly in terms of hate:

1. Cubs
2. Indians
3. Red Sox
4. Yankees
(All of these for their insufferable fans)

5. Orioles
6. Brewers
7. Twins
8. Royals
(They are all bad for baseball, for various irrational reasons of mine)

9. Blue Jays
(The Sox can't even be Chicago's team; these guys have an entire nation!. Plus they use funny looking money that's worth a third less than ours. Bwahahahahahaha!)

THE CANADIANS ARE FINALLY GOING TO HELP AMERICA WITH THE WAR ON TERRORISM!
THEY HAVE PLEDGED 2 OF THEIR BIGGEST BATTLESHIPS, 600 GROUND TROOPS AND 6
FIGHTER JETS.

AFTER THE AMERICAN EXCHANGE RATE WE ENDED UP WITH 2 MOUNTIES, 1 CANOE AND A
FLYING SQUIRREL.
