So I grew up in Panama City Beach, FL. We were 5 hours from New Orleans, 6 hours from Atlanta, 5 hours from Jacksonville, 6 hours from Tampa and 6 hours from Orlando. So needless to say I had no favorite professional sports teams. Our local news probably covered Atanta sports more than others but I always hated the Braves, and I could care less about any other Atlanta sports teams.
When I was in middle school, I was always bothered by the fact I didn’t really have any professional sports teams that I rooted for besides the San Francisco Giants, because Will Clark was my favorite player.
I remember making a conscious decision that I would one day live in a big city and cheer for the teams that were in that city. I lived in LA, but never took to the Lakers, Clippers, Dodgers, Angels, Ducks or Kings. I currently live in DC and I have to say, I like the Nationals. The rest of the teams I am kind of indifferent about. But now, we are moving to Miami.
So finally, decades of waiting to have a favorite professional sports team, and I can finally have four. The Heat, Dolphins, Marlins and Panthers are now my favorite professional sports teams. Can’t wait to start going to the games! I feel good getting that off my chest, its been about 15-20 years in the making.
By the way fellow Seminoles, don’t worry I will always be a Seminole!
Who are your favorite teams?
