I'm generally a baseball only/superbowl kinda gal, but if there's a team that I can put myself behind in other sports, I find myself more willing to root for them. Working for event staff at BYU gave me a love for Cougar football (I'll always root for them now). I don't really have any set affiliation with a basketball team and that's due to the lack of teams within the state of Missouri. But since I lived in Utah for a good chunk of time, I find myself really excited about them being in the playoffs.
So. What about everyone else? Do you care about basketball? Do you have a team that you cheer for just for the home town team factor? Or is it all just a big joke for you?
