    Of my favorite pro teams: with the San Jose Earthquakes' season just over, the San Francisco Giants' season long over, the San Jose Sharks still not playing and the San Francisco 49ers hardly playing, my last hope for some enjoyable sports-spectating the next few months appears to be the Golden State Warriors. :eek:

    How about you? :confused:

    GO SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES!!! :cool:

    Arsenal is pretty much it until spring training.

    As for MLS, I am fond of the Crew, but they are gone too. So it's now "Anybody But The Galaxy".

    Woo hoo! It's football weather all the time here! I'm a 49ers fan. Can't stand the Raiders! But I'm also fond of the Seahawks cuz I love their city.

    I also love college football. I haven't developed a favorite yet. I grew up liking USC. I like Stanford. I like University of Oregon over Oregon State, but I still like the Beavers. I like University of Washington and Washington State. I can't pick a favorite!!! I love college football. I'm leaning toward being a HUGE duck fan though....

    The Sacramento Kings, who have started not so hot.

    Manchester United, who have started not so hot.

    The Niners, who have started not so hot.

    Professional bicycling. Tyler Hamilton is my favorite rider. Oh wait, he has a positive blood doping test...

    Common theme anyone? It's been a brutal couple of months and doesn't look that rosy going forward...

    p.s. Anyone else into cycling? It's like I live in the wrong country.

    Oh my goodness! Then there's basketball! I like the Kings. I really want to like the Trailblazers. But for now they're nothing more to me than Jailblazers. How sad. I finally live in a city with an NBA team, and I can't get behind them.

    I love college basketball too. My teams here are pretty much the same as for football, except not USC. So I like Stanford and then the Oregon and Washington teams.

    Oh my gosh! I love sports! It's always sports season!

    Of course, regardless of the sport, I could also turn to my alma mater - San Jose State University (GO SPARTANS!!!)... except that most of its sports teams haven't been doing so hot lately either. :(

    GO SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES!!! :cool:

    I stopped watching pointy ball when Montana quit. (the last player who actually got paid for thinking on his own)

    I stopped watching Baseball when I moved out of Missouri (the Royals were my favorite)

    I stopped watching Hockey when I left Missouri (I hung out with people from St. Louis while at college in Rolla, Mo. and became a Blues fan)

    I never watched Basketball (it is just to damn easy to score or call a timeout and you shouldn't be allowed to put your hand inside the rim)

    Before the Quakes it was the RAI game every Sunday on Channel 26 (found out about Ceasars down near Fisherman's Warf during the 15 min of adds during half time)

    So now its just my 6 yr old doing Winter Warriers with Kids Love Soccer :)

    International football...UEFA Cup right now. (C'mon Celtic!!!)

    EPL.

    Some pointyball (casually following)

    As off seasons go, this should prove to be one of the most interesting where our Quakes are concerned. Usually, it's just a matter of counting days until the opener, wondering if we'll draft/trade for anyone interesting and trying to endure the "where will Landon go?" nonsense. This year...

    ...where WILL Landon be?

    ...where will the Quakes be?

    ...will we get an owner?

    ...will we get a stadium in the works?

    ...who will we lose to expansion?

    ...will we retain DeRo, Ramiro and Craig?

    ...what will happen with Dom?

    ...what is our schedule for next year?

    In the past, we've known the answers to the few questions we've had usually by Christmas. I have a feeling this off season, we'll be getting answers to most of these questions the entire time until next Opening Day.

    Oh, well...at least it won't be a boring off season.

    I've followed Le Tour since BEFORE Greg Lemond even entered! The first bike race I saw was a 17 year old Lemond KICK ASS as a junior rider in the seniors race at Nevada City Criterium. He lapped the entire field twice. Easily the most awesome athletic feat I've witnessed first hand.

    Hamilton had my vote for gutsiest ride ever after hauling up the pyrenees with a freaking broken collar bone. But the blood doping is devastating. I can't support anyone who uses performance enhancing drugs.


    Guys - I keep saying - support your local college soccer teams. Men's and Women's at SCU are top 10. Stanford has good teams both genders. SCU and Stanford regularly have teams challenging for the national titles. USF and Cal have great men's teams this year also. I don't know how Cal women are doing but they are usually competitive. Sorry to say SJState teams aren't doing so hot this season - but they still deserve your support!

    A bike enthusist friend of mine once explained blood doping to me as taking out a pint or two of your own blood, working out for a month or so and then reinfusing yourself with the blood taken out.

    How does this involve drugs, or am I thinking of something else here :confused:

    You can all come and watch me play soccer on Sundays. I wouldn't call it entertaining, however, unless you like humor.

    The EPL---Newcastle, maybe Arsenal (the husband's team since he was 7). I'd like to see PSV (Dutch League) and see DaMarcus....

    Anyone knows why they're benching Keller and Howard? I mean, this might be Keller's last year in the EPL but Howard?

    Still refereeing the BU8s and coaching the BU19s. (I am begging the weather gods for dry skies so that we can end the season on schedule.) Then I am helping with elementary school basketball. Plus I get to watch my 7-year-old at karate and swim lessons every week. The fun never ends around here!

    Whatever's on FSW. EPL, Bundesliga, Argentine & Brazilian... as long as the football is round, I will watch it.

    Pointyball, baseball, basketball, hockey = YAWN.

    No hockey... :(

    Lucky to catch Champions League action, or anything on Fox Sports World.

    Though, my interest in the NFL has been revived for some peculiar reason...

    I'm opining here... he had a bad game and commited a last minute gaffe in a Champions League match... it's the Brad Friedel syndrome, you have a bad game in a big game and suck, you go to the bench, and the British press will never let you hear the end of it...

    playing goalie for Man U or Liverpool is like being the drummer for Spinal Tap, they get rotated around every so often...

    cheers!

    I now watch my Dallas Cowboys - because I love Bill Parcells. (49ers used to be my favorite team, but when they traded Joe Montana, that was it for me. I left and never looked back. I loved Joe Montana.)

    I also watch every soccer game on FSW - but don't really cheer for any team in particular.

    And then of course my daugher's soccer team. They rock!

    Hartlepool United FC, West Hartlepool RFC and in the US The New York Giants.

    Not really into a particular college team as I didn't go to school over here and have not lived in one place long enough to get attached to any. I am hoping to go to the Womans NCAA finals which take place in Cary, NC though.

    I used to like the NBA, but have got sick of it. Still look for the Rockets results.

    Re: With the Earthquakes' season over, which teams/sports are you currently watching?

    Howard had three clankers, so he was sent to the end of the bench. His replacement has done well, so now Howard only gets midweek League Cup matches. He'll be back though.

    As for Kasey Keller, Spurs brought in Paul Robinson, the best young English keeper, in the offseason, and was sent to the bench. Robinson and Keller are not that far apart, Robinson's English, and Robinson's at least 8 years younger than Keller. Hopefully, Keller will be sold to a side where he has a chance to play.
