Who do you root against?

Posted on: June 14, 2009 1:16 am
 
Watching the NBA series, I find myself rooting against the Lakers more than I root for the Magic. I root against the yankees. I root against Purdue (when they play IU).  I root against North Carolina and USC.  There are teams that we dispise. Maybe because we are jealous. Maybe becuase they absorb too much of our time. Maybe because they cheat. Maybe because they have so much money the competition isnt fair. For whatever reason, we do tend to root against teams. Who do you root against?

Who do you root against?

1) Patriots.  Cheaters with obnoxious and unrealistic fans and a d0uch3bag coach.  An easy team to hate. 
2) Brazilian national soccer team.  The team that perfected the art of flopping in international competition.  When the replay shows there was no contact and yet the player is writhing on the ground in order to get the foul...well, only the Brazilians and Bill Billichik would do that!
3) Red Sox.  For years we had to hear their fans complain about the Yankees stealing players away from them because they had the most money to throw around.  Then the Red Sox started winning with that same strategy and it's suddenly okay with them.  Not to mention that the Red Sox fans are the same rotund, donut-eating whiners that root for the Patriots. 
4) Yankees.  They outspend every team in baseball by a large margin.  It's a built-in villain that you love to hate.
5) New Zealand All-blacks.  The NY Yankees of international rugby.  My South African springboks are coming around and the All-blacks are going down!
6) Tiger Woods.  Nothing against him, really, but it'd be nice to see someone else win some tourneys.  Look, Tiger misses a cut and Tom Watson almost wins a major at 59 years of age and Veejay Singh finally wins one.  That's what can happen if we could just get rid of Tiger!
7) 30 Rock.  The show's not funny and Alec Baldwin is a tool.
8) Keith Oberman.  Like Rush Limbaugh, only on the other side of the political spectrum.  He's never seen a political problem that wasn't the fault of GWB and the Republicans.  He's about as likeable as the Grinch.  That chick on before him is almost as bad.  Come to think of it, the whole network should occupy this part of the list.
9) Rosie Odonnell.  Not that I'm on Donald Trump's side, but a-whole-lot-of-Rosie's a bitter, mean gorgon.  Why is she still a celebrity?
10) U2.  What a sententious, sanctimonious, holier-than-thou rock band that really isn't that good.  They've got maybe three songs worth listening to, and yet we have to listen to Bono's controversial stand on AIDS (he's against it).
11) Al Gore.  He put together one of the best fantasy movies in my lifetime, and yet many mistook it for a documentary.  Kind of reminds me of the War of the Worlds radio fiasco, only many (including the Nobel Prize Committee) took it to be real.

heehur, you had me going there. One of the teams I root against is one of your own, the Miami Felons. I was a student at Notre Dame during the Catholics vs the Convicts series.  We HATED Miami. Some things stick.  It does add something to the game. Have you ever been watching several games on TV some saturday or sunday when a team you really hate is getting pummeled? YOu have to stay and watch a while. Thats sick, I know, but its true.

Go Colts! Go Hoosiers, Go Pacers!

seems like everyone can agree that dook is awful.

how can you "hate" a team because they are better than your team? thats weak.

There are plenty of teams and players that i root against but these are my top 3:
1)Any AFC East Team other than the Jets-Lifelong Gang Green fan and wouldnt have it any other way
2)Boston Red Sox- Because im a die hard yankee fan and wouldnt be if i didn't
3)Terrell Owens and any team that he plays for- he is just a moron and would rather he never existed, this year its buffalo, sorry you didn't have a shot...reference  number 1
Then there's the Mets once in a while when Met fans try to compare their organization to the yankees and thin Jose Reyes is better than Derek Jeter.
