I concurr. I hate it when fans don't really take any time to appreciate a team for its uniqueness or history and pick teams that are "favorites". I can safely say myself that I became a Man U fan because I thought David Beckham played for them some years ago. When I realized that he was not playing, a player by the name of Cristiano Ronaldo caught my eye with his dazzling moves and quick footwork. He intrigued me to begin watching soccer more regularly. I really cannot stand him now, since I am now an informed soccer fan. However, we all have some experience that pulls us in somehow.
