    Default Sports Fans in the Playground!

    Are there such things as fans of RP and Sports?

    I should count myself as one, as I've tried creating an "Entourage" style RPG using GURPS a long while back.

    So - anyone excited for their team's upcoming (or in-progress) season?

    And named after one of the greatest moments in sports history. ;)

    (I root for two teams; the Milwaukee Brewers, and whoever is playing the Cubs.)

    You know, Bartmanhomer, I liked you until now, but you had to go and be a Yankees' fan. Go Red Sox!

    A Red Sox fan calling out a Yankees fan is like Saruman calling out Sauron. You're both evil.

    FYI, I was born and raised in New York City my whole life. And Yankees is my favorite home baseball team. So don't get all mad at me for being a Yankees fan.

    Indeed. The Yanks and the Sox are basically the same, except the Yankees have more money. And championships. And prestige. And a city people actually want to visit. I kid, I kid; the Yankees really do have the best team money can buy.
    There, that should sufficiently rile up both groups.

    Gods help us all that that does not happen.

    Let's see:

    Hockey: Nashville Predators fan. Occasional sympathies for the local crew over in Glendale, but not when they're playing my boys.
    Baseball: Milwaukee Brewers.
    Football: I am from the great state of Wisconsin. I was born a Packers fan.
    College Football: My alma mater, UW-Whitewater. Barring them, the big school in Madison (Wisconsin Badgers).
    Basketball: Again, my alma mater, UW-Whitewater. I prefer Badger Big Ten hoops.

    Oh, you mean the NBA? Well, yeah, the Bucks, but I already know they won't be winning a title anytime soon. Same as with about 24 other teams in the league.

    The Other Footy: I'll be honest, don't really have any rooting interest in the so-called "beautiful game."

    Just to throw some love the A's way, it is a great story when Khris Davis to hit a home run wearing a jersey autographed by a Make-A-Wish fan.

    Now back to your regularly scheduled trash talk: The Athletics? Isn't that the team that Philadelphia said " Naw, we're good. We'd rather have the Phillies."

    It is said that the smartest move the Athletics ever made was to leave Philadelphia...

    Hear hear! It's not baseball unless there's good natured play fighting among the fans. Not real fighting, of course, then it'd be soccer. I went to a fight once, and a hockey game broke out.

    Aw, us soccer supporters are able to keep it down to good ol' trash talk. At least in MLS and NWSL. Unless you're from Seattle.

    Aren't fantasy sports the intersection between sports fans and rp fans? Also, I hate sports.

    Well, yeah, it is that time of year. Fantasy Football comes back with a vengeance, while Roto Baseball is winding down and Hockey pools are starting up.

    I won't schedule a D&D session up against a Cowboys game.

    It's technically possible to live in Dallas and not be a Cowboys fan, but I don't recommend it.

    Can you at least pick your college football team? Texas, Baylor, TCU, Texas Tech, A&M? You know, you guys could make your own conference if you throw in Rice, Houston & UTEP...

    @V No.

    Yes, I am still a Southwest Conference fan. As a Rice grad, I am more interested in the Rice/UH game than any other on this year's schedule -- because it's a SWC game.

    When I was growing up, there were three major league sports in Texas -- Cowboys football, Southwest Conference football, and high school football.
