Alright here's the deal. I am a die hard 49ers, Giants, Warriors, and AC Milan (Italian Soccer Team) fan. My dad is a 49ers fan but never really included me in his Sunday ritual. It was only when I flipped on my Madden 02 did I start becoming a football fan. Football parlayed into other sports (Except soccer, always have been a fan, Viva Italia!), and soon I was a Sports "Geek".
Now that I have transferred into a 4 year college, I want to be able to root for a College Football Team. I always told myself as soon as I get into a university I would have my team to root for, unfortunetly my college, UC Santa Cruz (Go Slugs!), does not have a football team for me to cheer for. So now I am putting my fan soul on the line and would like some of the 49er faithful to convince me to root for their team.
I have a few qualifications though:
- First - NO CAL! I was accepted by CAL only to be dropped 3 months before the start of school because of "over enrollment", which consequently ruined my back up school UC Davis. I have nothing against CAL fans (best friend is a die hard fan) just have bad memories.
- Second - I would very much preffer a PAC 10 or WAC team. Eventhough I haven't had a team to root for I have followed these two conferences every Saturday. Also those teams are usually the only ones I can watch every week on TV.
- Third - Please just don't vote for a team, give me reasons. Tell me why you love them.
Since I don't want to make a huge list for the poll, I will just put each team's state. After the first poll is done I'll take the state with the most votes and list each team within it.
I want to say, that once I chose a team, I am monagamous and unwaivering. I follow that team through thick and thin and will always be a fan.
So now let the bidding for my fan soul begin!
