1A) Cleveland Indians: The older I get, the more I love baseball. Some of my best memories are going to games with my dad. And I love listening to Tom Hamilton call a game.

1B) Ohio State Football: My first true sports love. Seeing those shiny helmets and the bright scarlet jerseys is a beautiful sight.

1C) Cleveland Browns: Family heritage. Usually requires copious amounts of beer to handle nowadays.

1D) Ohio State Basketball: Watched since I was six. My dad has told many stories about Fred Taylor and his great teams. 

5) Cleveland Cavaliers: Been a fan since the late 1980's, even when most of the kids my age were cheering for Jordan and the Bulls.

6) Columbus Blue Jackets: Attending games since the inaugural year. 

7) Aston Villa

8) Columbus Crew

9) Ohio State Wrestling: former high school wrestler and now a middle school coach, so I follow the sport as much as I can.

10) Nashville Predators: lived here for three years now and this is the only local team I've adopted.

11+) Various secondary teams I've semi-followed over the years (Reds, Cubs, Vikings, Titans, Lakers, and several other college FB and BB teams).

Northbrook, you made me laugh with that one! I should have been more specific: Middle School wrestling.

DJ, just read about your resignation. This fellow Marionaire will miss your prose. Not a frequent commentor, but a daily reader of this site who thoroughly enjoyed your work. Best of luck.

Supposed to be based on the state flag of Maryland. Makes for an awful uniform.
