 I don't really follow the NBA but I'm thinking of starting up...and the team that makes the most sense for me to latch on to would be the Blazers, since the Sonics are now in OKC and I have no sentimental ties to them.

Also, disclaimer, for Texas I picked the Texans because I despise the Stars and that's the only hockey team, and some of my favorite Q'ers are Texans fans. For the 2nd time today I say hey, I'm here for moral support.

I picked the #YoungAndTalented Kings solely to get on KBecky's good side. She's like a crazy soccer-mom with that team. I'm not a lunatic, I follow sports.

(Plus I'm clearly a little too happy about the Dodgers debacle right now. I say contract them or move them back to Brooklyn.)

If I was a Houston sports fan, I wouldn't want them back. Houston got a better deal out of the reimbursed compensation in the long run I believe.

I don't like any of the teams besides the Spurs and the Texans.   So, I want a N/A option (por favor')

I haven't felt the same way about football since the Oilers got sold.  It took me 14 years to start
rooting for the Dolphins (by default of geography).

Won't be long before the Jaguars move there, if the NFL ever gets around to getting that deal done. Out of all the cities that lost a team during the 1980's and 90's, the NFL managed to reimburse all of them (Baltimore, St. Louis, Houston, Cleveland) except for L.A.

 Northern Arizona University, really you should go with the Coyotes. the rest of them suck!

It does crack me up that the Texans are winning Texas, haters gonna hate. I am not saying that the Cowboys should be winning. But based on the last year and who has won. It should be the Rangers or the Mavericks. The Texans didn't win sh!t last year and shouldn't be winning Texas. People are just picking the Texans over the Cowboys for that reason.

Texas!!!!!!!!!!
HOW is that the Texanshave as much as the Rangers and more than the Mavs and Spurs????????????????????????
Honest question- When was the last time the Texans were in the playoffs???
In all honesty Spurs are the best team in Texas, but as a Mavs fan i REFUSE to vote for them CHUMPS!!!!!!!

Kenne- for the State of Washington, you should have put an answer opition of "its a tie they both lose"!!!
Captain- Lakers are the best team in Cali, and will always be the best team in Cali (I just cant vote for them right now since my Mavs are playing them, LOL)!!!

In one of these he said something about putting teams we like too, not necessarily who's the best so that's what I went with.

Not likely.  He's not even paying attention.  

(If I had actually taken the time to think, I probably would have picked the Rockies on that one, but since I really don't care about any of the teams, I just clicked on whatever.)

They were going to move them to Hamilton, Ontario but that move didn't go through. I've also heard the Atlanta Thrashers could move to Canada and resurface as the Winnipeg Jets.

Lots of rumblings about Atlanta moving to.  I think it's smart to move teams that don't turn a profit.  Especially in the south where hockey isn't very popular.  I just hope Hartford gets another team some day.  There jerseys were f'in sweet.

It surprises me that Phoenix has a pro hockey team instead of an MLS team. I think soccer would be a big hit here, especially amongst the Hispanic community, which is around 50% of the who all live here.

Hockey hasn't really caught on and the recent buyout controversies really dampened the team's reputation amongst the local sports fans. They are trying to offer season tickets at super discounts to win back some of their fan base, partially due to the organization waiting several months after the rest of the NHL started selling tickets, because they had no idea if they were going to remain there next season.

I believe there are a couple of reasons the NHL wants to make Phoenix work.  First, it's the #13 market in the US.  Which is pretty substantial.  It's more than every Canadian market except Toronto.  And more than six times that of Quebec City or Winnipeg.  It has far more potential for local corporate support than any Canadian city (Except Toronto).  And finally, the NHL is very east heavy and needs teams in the western side of the continent if they want to be more than just a regional or niche sport.

It's not an automatic that an area with a strong Hispanic community would flock to MLS games.  Sometimes it just depends on where in town the team plays.  When the Quakes played at Spartan Stadium, sometimes I felt like I wasn't in the USA when I went to games with all the Spanish being spoken around.  But since they have been playing at Buck Shaw Stadium in Santa Clara, there are WAY more non-Hispanics than ever at the games.  Further, allegiance to the Mexican teams still seem to overwhelm MLS here.  There are still very strong allegiances to the Mexican Club teams (Like Club America) and, of course, the national team.

Also...  Perhaps MLS doesn't want their players suffering heat exhaustion playing games in 120 degrees?

Side note...  I was kind of surprised that when Chivas USA joined the league that they didn't play in San Diego.  I guess someone figured they'd do better sharing the facility in Carson than being the only MLS in San Diego...
