Hi Folks, thought it would be nice to post something other than cancer stuff! So who is into football? What is your team. I am a BUFFALO BILLS fan. I was OAKLAND RAIDERS when I was younger but decided to join the rest of the western New Yorkers and support the local team! Go BILLS!

Grew up a Ram's fan...lived in California. Now I'm a Texan, live near Houston, so I pull for the Texan's. High expectations around town to make the playoffs. If not, Kubiak may be gone.

A great weekend to all.
Chuck.

Kansas City Chiefs fan here.

Not much to cheer about the last few years, but that goes with the territory.

New Hampshire is so small that we don't have any pro teams so naturally I love all of the Boston teams.

Oh...football, that's right...just never saw picture of Glenna...know what her husband looks like...and who is that little one?

Oh yea, football...not a huge fan, but Penn State for college, EAGLES for Philly. It's a way to bond with Mark...although, he does not support watching reruns of Law and Order as a way of bonding with me...what's up with that????

Sorry guys but I'm getting off subject for a minute ;-)

Kim - I wished that was me in the pic, to be that young again - lol. That's a picture of my beautiful granddaughter Chelsea and her precious 8 month old son Maven. They are two of my reasons for fighting!! If I ever get a decent picture of me I will post it someday.

Okay guys, now back to the regularly scheduled discussion - FOOTBALL

I moved to Denver the year Elway started his rookie season, I live in MD now. So by heart I am a Broncos fan but by marriage I am a Steelers fan. My wife her sister, parents, cousins, etc are all die hard native to Pittsburgh fans.

God help me.

USC is my favorite, although I do like the Broncos. My older son played at Boise State in the mid 80's. I live 75 miles north of Boise so we are in Bronco territory. As for the pros, the Browns. I'm originally from Cleveland.

My husband is a true blue Lions fan. What a guy he has never given up on them. So if he can stick with them all these years, get laughted at when he wears his Lions shirts. One guy said he should be ashame to wear it. You know he is a Keeper. So with that I will say Go Lions, Please just GO!!!!

The one thing I really loved about football season was ordering pizza and wings. Though I know I won't be ready to do pizza I'm hoping to be a able to do some plain wings. I know I won't be able to handle and buffalo sauce :(!!!!

Wow! 20 wings. How long did it take him to eat that many. I can eat meat; but it takes so long and it gets frustrating.

Thanks for the fun topic. I am typing this while on vacation looking out across the St. Lawrence River.
Though I live a mere hour and a half from Buffalo, I am a Philadelphia Eagles fan. I've been a fan since I was 10 years old. It was Super Bowl 15, Oakland vs Philly and I had to pick a team to root for and I decided that I'd root for the Eagles since I loved birds and the color green. I've been a die hard fan ever since.

We don not have any professional team in the area, but I was a Pittsburgh fan when I was stationed there in the early 70’s. Here is a true story. My son’s favorite is the Rams. A few years back, I was heading for Las Vegas. His favorite team, the RAMS were at 200-1 to win the superbowl and he gave me 10 dollars to place a bet. This is an extremely long shot.

It was early in the season and the odds had dropped to 130-1. I placed his bet and decided to make a 10 dollar bet for myself. Surprisingly, the RAMS were in the superbowl. A friend was going to Vegas that weekend. I decided to make a hedge or counter bet of 500 dollars for the opposing team to win. I figured it was a win win situation. If the RAMS lost, I would lose that 10 dollar superbowl bet and win that 500 dollars bet. If the RAMS won, I would win 1300 dollars minus the 500 dollar bet for a gain of 800 dollars. This type of situation rarely occurs.

That game probably turned out to be the most exciting finish throughout my years of watching the superbowl game. Tennessee had the ball and was driving towards the goal line. They ended on the one yard line preserving my bets. This is besides that run by Franco Harris when I was at Pittsburgh.

The RAMS won by 7 points so my 10 dollar bet gave me a win of 1300 dollars plus my original 10 dollar bet. My son won a like amount. The point spread was RAMS at -7 so I was even on the 500 dollar bet and got my money back.

My apologies for this long story on this cancer forum. The men would probably be more interested in this tale. May be some ladies too. Sometimes, it is good to break away from the routine and talk about something else besides our battle with “C”.

From that year forward (2001) and since we do not have a professional football team close by, I having been betting the long shots and a few with 20-1 odds to win the superbowl. Then, I root for those teams to win.

The U of I never did anything for me. I graduated from Southern Ill U, though I did date a girl that went to the U of I. Notre Dame has always been the one. It kind of runs in the family. Cheers

I am an Rams fan by birth (Los Angeles) and a 49 fan by location (and I like their head coach Mike Singletary). But lately I am drawn to the Texans. Their style of play is always exciting with the Shaub to Johnson hookup always lurking.

Best,

Mick

Broncos from my mom's side and Da Bears from my dad's. Die hard Colorado State University Rams, though. I am fortunate enough to have season tickets to the Broncos and the Rams this year. Go Broncos, Bears, and Rams!!!!

Doesn't appear they "Boys" have a lot of fans but here goes....

Mike (my partner w/Stage IVA tonsil cancer): DALLAS COWBOYS all the way. Just in case you were wondering, he's a YANKEE fan too (he grew up on Long Island). He doesn't follow the NY football teams because JETS/GIANTS aren't true NY teams since they play in the Meadowlands (NJ) so the only real NY team is the BILLS and he was never a fan. LOL

Me on the other hand, the COLTS and of course I'm bias for the hometown team, the RAVENS.

College FB teams: Nebraska, Tennessee and of course Maryland (go TERPS)

Should be a great season.

Chris/Mike
