Go Sharks!

I'm not really a sports fan, but if I *had* to like a sport, it would be hockey.

My husband is a goalie afterall.

And I can be a pretty good cheerleader when my town is doing great in the semi-finals.

In any sport, I really only like watching the last game of the finals...and just the last 1/2 hour or so at that. Ya know...to watch the emotional part...when the winners are celebrating and the other team is sad.

I almost always root for the underdog. The team who hasn't won in 20 years, or is trying to end a curse, or when a coach or player is retiring after that game. Or I root for the team with the coolest uniform colors (I'm such a girl). Unless it's a Bay Area team. If they made it to the playoffs, I'm gonna root for 'em...even if their uniforms suck.

I laughed over this, MAD, because that IS so "Girl." HA. But at least you admit it. I always root for the underdog if I don't have any special "thing" for the teams playing but there are some sports I could watch just for the joy of the sport itself, regardless of who plays. But when you come to college anything, it's MICHIGAN all the way. (I'm obviously a Girl who loves sports! :)
