It is almost football season, who do you cheer for???

I know that I have cheered on, college wise, the Texas Longhorns since I have been about 3 years old. Both of my parents went to University of Texas and taught me the fight song at a very young age so I know no different! So, that is a given. (In fact, my daughter had asked how many colleges I had applied for. I told her only one -- was there any other to consider in the late 1970's???? j/k I had never given any consideration for any other!!!)

I used to cheer on the Dallas Cowboys, but now that the Texans have come along when I was living in the Houston area, they have become a team that I cheer on now. When they both play, it is tough to decide who I want to win.... just like when the Washington Redskins play the Dallas Cowboys... I would always want Washington to win, but when they played Dallas, it was tough.....

Who is your favorite team?

For how long have they been your favorite????

Just curious...

AnnandDan2005 - My being born in 1959, I missed the beginnings of the Cowboys; but, my first husband (7 years older than me) remembers it well. The OU UT game is still played the same week of October as per tradition. Some things never change!!!

I have been a fan of the Cowboys since 1960. Only a Texan that grew up in the 50s would remember that before the Cowboys, the state did not have a major league team of any kind. The closest were in St. Louis. I listened to Cardinals and Browns baseball by scartchy radio. I attended UT back in the days of the old Southwest Conference. I always tried to go to the OU UT game in Dallas (it was always the week the State Fair opened).

yess....cookie. I was at Kyle Field a few years ago at the emergence of Reggie McNeil as a true freshman...and the butt-kickin' the Aggies put on the Sooners that day. Watching Bob Stoops throw down the headset and clipboard made my season...

waggypolly? you're not a fan of the AllBlacks or Wallabys? Rugby and Aussie Football is where it's at! aaaaaggggghhhh! I'd once considered moving to Sydney to accept a job and it's the football that was the primary motivator...and the salary, of course...

I've been a Texas A&M fan since early teens..mainly because College Station is only 40 miles from our farm. I've never been the 'UT Hater' or 'Raider Hater' or any of that stuff. I really look down on others that do . I really love Longhorn football and baseball (and know the teams better than the A&M club, thanks to sports talk radio). I went to LSU and played for Louisnana Tech, but you're not going to see me paint MY house purple or Blue/White....maybe maroon, though. I can never wait each year for college and high school football to start. Nuttin' better....

waggypolly - Ahhhh.. pick a team and following their winnings (hopefully). It is pretty exciting.... Of course, my first husband took it to an extreme and would bet on every tarnation team there was...and work in the parlee bets as well.... It would upset him terribly if I could out pick him...and he would study so hard on all the teams to know who's wife had just had a baby the night before. His gambling was so bad, he was betting on golf -- now, come on!!! lol...

Hope you have fun when you pick a team to follow... Of course, I would pick the Houston Texans to follow... Their quarterback, Dave Carr, is something else!!!

The weather forcast for the upcoming pro football season is Lightning! Go CHARGERS.

And I don't care how much they suck... I just can't turn my back on my team.

mi_mwpm - Well the Oilers left Houston and Houston got a MUCH better team... South Carolina got the Panthers...and Jacksonville got the Jaquars.....Hopefully, we will see the Detroit team re-vitalized for game playing sake!!!

You know me, TxRose, Crimson and Cream as in OU Sooners! I have also been a fan of the 49ers and wish that they would get back to their glory days. I am elated that they finally unloaded Terrel Owens. He will never hold a candle to Jerry Rice. And.....I am so looking forward to that Bevo Burger that will be served up this year. Texas may be the Big 12 favorite but they have to go through OU to get there!

Hi, my name is JF and I'm a Detroit Lions fan. I've been addicted since I can remember. Don't know why... last time they had anything going on there was this guy, Barry Sanders, and they caused him to retire 'cause they suck so bad.

Anyone want to bring a real football team to Detroit, and I don't mean as the gang that beats up on the Pussies, er I mean, Lions every other week?
