I lived in England for a few years when I was a kid, and one of our neighbors was a HUGE Liverpool fan. He gave me a Liverpool scarf as a gift and I was an instant fan. What can I say? 8-year olds are easily influenced. Moved back to the States and lost track of the team.
My oldest halfbro is a fan too, even though he lives in London. Dragged me with him to watch a game, almost 10 years ago already though. YNWA is amazing live.
I'm not really a fan of any team, I sort of lost interest when I "retired" myself almost 7 years ago (I watch games sometimes thou). I played 7 years, 4 of those served as captain. 6 months before I left, our old coach was replaced by a new one whose twin sons played in the team. From the very beginning, he seemed to have a some sort of attitude problem towards me and piled everything (and I mean EVERYTHING, in a game where our regular goalkeeper was sick, one of the d-men had to play G and so a lot of goals were scored against us, I scored 4 goals and we lost 5-4- yup, that was my fault after the game..) as my fault. This ultimately led to me being stripped off the C, and the final straw was at a practice (don't remember the details nor why the argument started, but I came pretty close to punching him) at which he pointed to the door and I never looked back (originally I took a sabbatical in the hope of a new coach, but it took 3 years to happen and I thought I'd be too rusted after such a long time away).
The funny thing, a few months after that incident the coach begged me to return because of their struggles to score goals after I left.
i just wish the soccer field was half the size and their were half the players on the field. Then it would become the most epic sport in the world.
Its too big and too much play in the "neutral zone"

MLB: Braves 1st, Marlins 2nd
NFL: Falcons. I like the Dolphins and will cheer for them when I feel like it - I just don't care about football that much.
NHL: Spurs. Hawks in a distant second, when they're not being little b****es.
English Premiere League: Liverpool!!!
