Can you hate your city but like their football team?

    So Denver is going to Superbowl icon_cool.gif The only thing is I can't stand living here and will be out of the area by the time Superbowl comes around, so it's sort of like 'meh'. It's great, but It's hard to celebrate a team winning when you don't care for the city lol. Especially when all the people who live there are a bunch of homogeneous clones. It's only slightly more exciting than 'OMAHA' Nebraska, the nearest slightly happening city to the east icon_rolleyes.gif

    So I wonder, is it possible to not like living in a city but like the football team? Or is it mutually exclusive? I celebrated my home team the Buccaneers winning a few years ago.

    I guess I could root for San Fran since I like their gay scene more. (oh and SF will turn Kapernick gay in another lifetime)

    I did go to an Argo's game once, but I don't care much for team sports in general. Too much hoop-lah over basically nothing happening.

    I'm the opposite. Love my city, but I don't care too much for LA Galaxy.

    Yes, it's the same as college football! I can't stand Columbia, SC. It's a fucking boring city, it's so hot in the summer and I'm glad I left. But I love my Gamecocks during football season and that's the only time I visit Columbia.

    Well, considering it was one of the last places to get a footie team. Maybe you all will get a good QB next year lol.

    I used to not be into football as much myself...well, I was more into playing it and the games. But having traveled so much, I think a team pretty much is a way to 'advertise' a city in a way.

    if you have to define your city by a sports team, it's just sad
