I used to like at least one big name team to be in it but the NBA with the Cavs vs. Warriors 4 years in a row got so old.

I tend to agree. It's not a lot of fun when the same teams are in the finals of any sport year after year.

I like who I like, marquee is not relevant. If it's not including who I like, then I like a good game/series.

Unless its my team, I love a Cinderella story!



San Antonio, TX (in the old city)


"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

Still waiting for the Lions and the Browns in the Super Bowl...

I don't care, but I like a team I'm rooting for to be competing.

And I don't like playoffs. In the old days, the team with the best record won the league championship (speaking of baseball, of course), and played the best team from the other side. Five or seven-game playoffs are too prone to uncertainty.

Half the teams in the NHL (for example) get to the playoffs! But, each game in each city is sold out throughout the playoffs! It's all about the money!

Playoff hockey is probably the best of the big spprts, but playoff anything is a step up in terms of intensity and drama. I'm not a huge sports fan, and I do find the length of regular season games ludicrous in relation to the playoffs.

The Dodgers are the underdogs.
But Machado is such a d00sh.

Edit: I root for the underdog unless it's LA, the Yankees, Ohio State, Notre Dame, or the Dallas Cowboys.
