If you couldn't be a fan of the Skins, what team would you follow and why?
Please give reasons.

Re: If you weren't a Skins fan, who would you be a fan of and why??

Oops, I forgot to post my answer...
The Packers.
Because Green Bay is probably the best football town ever. Brett Favre is the most gutsy QB of all time. You have to love a town that has around 500k people and all of them are die hard fans. Green Bay is what football is all about.

Also, The Packers aren't all about Me, me, me...they are and have always been a team by the best definition of the word.

I have been a Skins fan since 1971 when I was 7 years old. I grew up in North Carolina back in those days there was not a Panthers team and most folks from NC were Skins fans. So I suppose if I were not a lifelong skinsfan I would be a Panthers fan.

I hope your poll/question is not an indication that you think Skins fans will be looking for a new team to root for soon.

Not at all.
Just curious, the Packers game tonight made me think of that.
My wife and I just snuggled under a blanket, dimmed the lights, shared a bowl of popcorn with the fire place roaring. We both love to watch Brett Favre.

awww! thats so sweet. j/k!

this is a hard one........I really dont know who to pick. I dont really have a "second favorite" team. There are a few teams that I pull for on sundays but its usually out of pity, not because I like them. Teams like Det,Cle,Arz(now that they are out of the NFC east). Those teams have all been horrible for a long time and being a Redskins fan I can relate.

Re: If you weren't a Skins fan, who would you be a fan of and why??

I love how the Packers are "owned" by the fans. That's pretty cool. Growing up I used to root for the Browns. Loved Kosar, Byner, Mack, Slaughter, Minnifield...

But anyway I'd say today my second favorite team is the Titans. Been that way for about 10 years. When I was living in Puerto Rico after college we used to get the satelittle feed from Tennessee so I got hooked on all teams from Tennesse since that's all I'd see.

That's funny.
Well, you're in the Eastern Time Zone, so it's late there...I'm in Mountain, so it's barely 9:30pm.
I do love the Mountain time zone when it comes to football.

I didn't know you lived in Puerto Rico, is that where you're originally from, or were you just having a good time?

Yeah, my mom is from Puerto Rico. I go there all the time. I went there about a month after I graduated from college to spend a couple of weeks with my cousins. Stumbled across a job there, moved in with my uncle, lived there for a year.

I am convinced that Taf would have a closet full of Vikings shit. He would follow Smooty from team to team.

Re: If you weren't a Skins fan, who would you be a fan of and why??

The Lions were always my second favorite team in the 90's, but I really could care less about them at this point. I tend to alternate between liking teams and hating teams, with the Skins being the only team I always root for, and the Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, and Ravens being the converse teams I always root against. This year I like the Saints and the Chargers, like everybody else. I like the Packers. I like the Bills. Steelers. Old line small market teams with passionate fans. My mother is from Chicago so I tend to support the Bears. My favorite contemporary player is McNair - even though he's a Raven now, I can't bring myself to like him any less (although I don't have a problem rooting for him to lose).

I thought jobs there paid very poorly?

I think that's great to live in another culture and learn the way other people live. I enjoy visiting other countries, but I have yet to go to Puerto Rico. I did however, see it from the cruise ship on my way to St. Thomas.

Well the pay was horrible, but that's why I lived with my uncle. But you gotta pay your dues somewhere. The experience was great, and without it I probably don't make it to ESPN today. Plus I mean I was living in Puerto Rico in the wintertime! Can't beat that
