Football is the only sport I'm really into, but I watch a little basketball too...
I am a HUGE Saints fan - through thick and thin... I love them. It's actually a little past obsessive and into the realm of sick.
I really enjoy the people involved in the games, so I follow players pretty closely. While the Saints have no competition for first in my heart, my second place team will change based on the players and coaches. If I like someone, I want them to do well.
On the other side of that coin, if I don't like a player or coach, I generally want the team to fail. I also develop theories about off field behavior based on my feelings about a player.
On that note, I maintain that Tom Brady kicks puppies for fun. That "nice guy" persona is totally fake. It has to be - you can see the evil in his eyes. I take it personally that Ben Roethlisberger can't seem to be nice to Bill Cowher, who seems to be a really great guy.
I love Notre Dame, adore Charlie Weiss, and cried every Saturday of the 2007 season. I'll talk about them more when I have something nice to say.
I follow Florida and LSU also - but not with the same passion.
I just wanted to let you know that Bleacher Report has launched out of beta with an updated look and feel and some great new features. Check out the "Game On" link in the header to find out more.
Next week we'll be launching the site to the world with some public announcements—and it'd be great to get a contribution from you between now and Tuesday to make Bleacher Report's launch a success.
Let me know if you need any help with ideas or have questions. Have a great weekend z.z.!
