i really can't answer this question... 'cause this past year's super bowl is the first championship i've been able to celebrate since i was 9 years old, when you don't really think about things like this.

so ask me again next year, and i'll let you know. i tell myself that the giants have a 5 year grace period after such an amazing run, but we'll see how long that lasts.

I've never seen a championship for a team I root for at the professional or collegiate level, so I cannot answer this question.

Hey, the Philadelphia Soul won the AFL Championship last night! Now you can say that you have seen a professional sports championship in Philadelphia. Now you can answer the question. C'mon, how does it feel?

I had been into hockey only about five or six years when the Wings won the Cup back in 97, and I remember crying tears of joy. The next year I was just as excited, hoping they could do it again, and maybe because the 98 one was so much more emotional thanks to the Konstantinov factor, it was that much sweeter.

When the Packers won the Super Bowl in 1997...holy moly. I was 14 years old. My aunt and uncle lived next door, so my parents, my sister, and I had gone over to watch it with them. There was a whole lot of excitement in that house! It was awesome. Of course, Favre ended up on the front page of the local paper, and you could buy prints of it. I had one hanging in my bedroom.

Even if the Packers were to never win a single game again, I'd love them and stand by them. But, man...them winning the Super Bowl sure was fun!! It really gave you an extra burst of pride in being a fan.

I believe I used the phrase "team I root for." Some lacrosse team in Philly has won a title or two in my lifetime. Only problem is, I don't give a fuck about either.

Besides kicking ass and being THE HISTORIAN, what do you give a fuck about?

Aww, the Arena Football League has been around for 22 seasons. I guess you can say they're a "real" pro sports league now. I know you used the phrase "team you root for", but I figured you might be into the Philadelphia Soul. Hell, Jon Bon Jovi owns the team! Why not?

Nothing. If it ain't kicking ass, what's the point?

I just don't give a fuck about the Soul, and I'm having a really hard time getting around that. So, yeah.

Is that supposed to be a reason to root for them?

Oh wait, we can't make fun of Bon Jovi on this forum. It's mean. Nevermind.

It's not real. It's not real football. It's so clear.

Also, you're wrong.

I still love to talk about football and it is fun to watch but I'm just not excited anymore. Everything I wanted has happened.

Has anyone else had an experience like this with your favorite team or athlete?
Not me. After being there for 6 nonconsecutive years and 2 degrees, I will never ever ever get tired of watching the Hokies play (read: kick ass). I look forward to each new season. I finally got to go to an ACC championship game last year and see it first hand, which was incredible. If we make it this year I'll try my best to get there again. Hopefully this season I can still attend a few games. I really want to finally get tickets for a bowl game this time. I'm already getting excited about it. I don't care how many times they win, I'm a Hokie for life! I really don't think I could ever get sick of it. Plus, it's fun to go out to bars outside of Blacksburg and impress some of the fellas with my knowledge of college football
