    Scar,

    Very cool about Braddock. Cinderella Man is one of my all time favorite books, the movie was great too. I watched allot of his old fights online.

    Gueli,
    I do not put them on a pedestal I just enjoy watching them. I used to collect autographs, and honestly I did tend to put atheletes on a pedestal years ago. After I had been in the hobby for about 4 years I learned better.

    I was about to go- waitaminute- I wasnt saying... - But I reread your post and realized you were not being defensive- and I was going to say I did not mean to offend... But realy your reply was not going there.

    I do not think collecting autographs is such a bad thing, especially if you go and meet that person in person. The last autographs I went to colect was from WWII veterans at an airshow near reading, pa. Some people I look up to, especially when you hear about some of their exploits.
    Well anyway,
    Back to the OP...

    Favorite Sport: Baseball

    NFL:
    Favorites: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (yes, I know, but I'm a native of the Tampa area and have stood by them since 0-26 so I won't abandon them now)
    Least Favorites: New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins

    MLB:
    Favorites: Philadelphia Phillies
    Least Favorites: Braves, Yankees

    NBA:
    Favorites: 76ers
    Least Favorites: Lakers

    NHL:
    Favorites: Flyers
    Least Favorite: don't really have one, as this is my least favorite of the 4 major pro team sports

    College:
    Favorite- Boston College (where I did graduate work), South Florida (for Dad, who is an alum)
    Least Favorite- Notre Dame, by a mile!

    Nascar: could care less

    Favorite Athletes: I don't really have any favorites. Growing up it was Dr. J, but after all that stuff came out about him in his divorce and he was less than a good husband and father, it tainted my love for athletes. Then a friend of mine went to work for the Red Sox after college as a TV producer and traveled with the team. I learned from him that 95% of the athletes he came in contact with in his job (and not just Red Sox players, either) were self-centered egotistical jerks to most people. So, I root for teams, not players.

    Love Football. Don't care for most other sports but my oldest son went through a Nascar phase and now I'm familiar with many drivers. His favorite was Jeff Gordon.

    GO GATORS!!!

    And I liked the Bills of the '90's in spite of their Super Bowl losses.
