Hello to you all
 
My favorite team which I have been a loyal supporter for some 20 year, ever since I know football, has finally reached its first final in 6 years and hopefully will bring the first championship in 10 years though we have a bad history with finals, we lost 34 final matches in 40 years.
 
So what is your favorite team/s in every sport you follow?

PAOK of Thessaloniki. In all sports (basically Football (or soccer for you yanks) and Basketball.
Sadly, the last years this great team is declining...

England. Mainly Rugby and Cricket. Though I do have Australian sympathies of course. I am a Chelsea supporter too (though not fervent).

Despite everything I still support Southampton at football, though masochistically and from afar. Supporting Hampshire at cricket is currently not so painful.
 
The Atlanta Braves have been going through a bad patch, maybe because I haven't been over for a couple of years. (Every time I've watched them, they have won.)
 
I probably should support the Falcons but I'm always reminded of the legendary newsreader who is supposed to have announced that the police had caught a sneak thief in the Falcons' car park before the game: however he was not forced to watch the game on the ground that it would be constitutionally cruel and unusual punishment.

Legia Warsaw, Barca, Celtic, Liverpool, Schalke, Borussia D., AC Milan and Poland of course. Other sports - no favourite teams because the only true teams are in football.

You're right. The only true teams are in football, not soccer. Wink

My favorites are the Atlanta Falcons and the Kansas City Chiefs.

For baseball I like the Atlanta Braves.

For basketball...The Chicago Bulls, I guess, since Michael Jordan played for them. (I don't really follow basketball)

Soccer: Don't watch much soccer, though I enjoyed the World Cup and the Champion's league.

Oh boy, where too begin...
 
American style football - Primarily the Dallas Cowboys, with a healthy dose of respect for the NY Giants! Ouch
 
Rugby - I guess we could say it is the precursor to American football? I can't find it on often where i live, but when i do, i'll watch every second of it until it is over!
 
Soccer - I don't have a favorite American or International team. But it is fun too watch.
 
Baseball - As a kid, i liked the Texas Rangers, but got rather bored with it as i grew up. Mostly because the game has been dominated mainly by any team from the New England area for most of it's history. Maybe once... on a rare blue moon, some other team might capture the championship. Other then that, the game seems most sadly to be very easily predictable. Angry I wished it weren't so! Censored
 
Basketball - At the beginning of the season, i usally like too watch and root for the Dallas Mavericks, but then... i usally find myself throwing my support too any team that can keep itself together by the end of the season!
 
Hockey - No particular team is my favorite, but the fights that can break out are very spectacularly passionate! A damn good sport Thumbs%20Up
 
Racing - I love Nascar (Dale Earnhart Sr. was and still is the best!Tongue, his was the only team in the sport of racing worth watching!) Since his death i have followed Tony Stewarts career with interest, who himself came over to Nascar from Formula car racing. I don't have a particular team favorite among the Formula car racing teams. I'm just have a particular need for speed! I'm not that picky. Big%20smile I also have always enjoyed National and International Superbike racing, as well as Motocross.

There's only one Borussia....Borussia Dortmund.
 
Another team is FRAM Reykjavik.
 
And of course the team of Reykjavik's unions. You can watch it twice a month, mostly on sundays, at Reykjaviks puplic sports fields.

Also worthy of Clap, unless they are playing the Timberwolves, I am rooting for them.  How can one not love Tim Duncan?  And Manu, Tony Parker, the since retired Admiral, David Robinson etc. etc.
 
My favorite teams are the Twins, Vikings, T-Wolves, Wild, aforementioned Spurs, use to like a ton of other baseball teams, as well as football teams.  But mainly those first four.

Well, only team I ever loved is F.C. Sarajevo, and that love lasts since 80's... Smile
Even tho our league sucks big time lately, and it is a real torture to follow it, I still feel the same passion every time my team plays...
 
I've tried to "force" myself to get into following of some other international teams too, so that watching of foreign leagues or international cups could be more interesting for me,  but it simply didn't work... I stay more or less detached about their results.
 
I could mention some teams that i prefer among other internetional ones, mostly because the atmosphere on the stadiums and their ultras/hooligans... like: Boca Juniors, Besiktas, Napoli, Livorno, Liverpool etc...
 
But, my favorite team... Only Sarajevo F.C...
