Side teams

A sports fan is like a planet. Some of us are like Earth, with one large moon, a single sports team that means everything to us. Not to stereotype, but these sorts tend to be extremely local folks, and whether you support Everton or Auburn, that one team dominates your thinking 365 days a year. There are the Marses of us, with a couple of teams, most likely from different sports, and often in the same town (your prototypical Yankees in the summer, Giants in the winter type).

But then, there are us Jupiters. Somehow - and we don't always know how - we end up with scores of sattelites, some bigger than others, but the gravitational pull that is our obsession with sports has dragged a staggering number of teams into our orbit from the outer reaches of space. So, as I sit here in my Villa shirt, drinking coffee from a Habs mug, with my Nantes banner and Timbers Army scarves in the background, I ask you: how many teams are in your orbit? Which are the most important?


I'll go first. There are 11 teams for which I at least read up about online. The top six are teams for which I never miss a game.


Most important: Montreal Canadiens, Aston Villa, FC Nantes, Portland Timbers

Secondary: (my "ESPN" teams): Buffalo Bills, Portland Trail Blazers

Over the hills and far away: Sydney Roosters, Sydney Swans, Leinster Rugby, Al Ahly Cairo, CS Herediano
