Golden Nuggets: Of Manning, Smith And Newton

I got to thinking about how I never see most of you on any other sites here on SB Nation. I'm not talking about things like on our mixed martial arts site or our tennis site, I'm talking about on the other Bay Area teams. Then I realized the dominance that the San Francisco 49ers had and when they had it, and realized that most of us aren't necessarily in the Bay Area and have no ties to the other teams. I guess I'm interested to know what other teams in other sports are you guys fans of? Or which fighters, boxers or tennis players - things like that. If I didn't have events like UFC 146 and Roland Garros, I'd be losing my mind by now without football. The offseason blows. Onto the links, of which there are few.
