    Just pick a team already...this over analyzing you're doing is probably why you've already burned through three other "teams"...your team is picked from the heart, not your head...your head will always tell you there's a better team to follow, your heart will tell your head to F-off...

    I live in the absolutely WORST place to be a Bears fan. Northern Wisconsin where I have to put up with both Viking AND Packer fans. Yet here I am after all these years and I'm probably one of the oldest on the board. Speaking of which this IS the best board in all of sports. That's my take so I'll finish by saying that if you come on board you will NOT be disappointed.
    ;)

    I live in Vegas. Location doesnt matter. We live in the digital age, and teams travel all over the country. I last got to see the Bears play in Arizona against the Cardinals last December.

    Most fans of any team grew up or were influenced by their parents or family. I've been a bears fan since I was about 5.

    The best piece of advice I can give you is the team chooses the fan. When you know, you know.

    Become a Jacksonville Jaguars fan... There's no better way to appreciate a win, than with a team most likely going 0-16.. :D

    I have a lot of respect for fans that stick with their team through horrific times. In my town, there are a ton of bandwagon fans. They always sport the jersey of whomever is the hot team. When the Steelers were hot, the Pit jerseys were everywhere.........Giants, Green Bay, Patriots.....just the "flavor of the year" thing. I hate that.

    When I see a guy with a cap, t-shirt....anything, that is a team (any sport) that hasn't won big in a long time, I do respect the perseverance. It's "real" and not the phony stuff.

    Of course, maybe that's because, as a Bears fan, there have been a lot of real crappy years (I thought I'd die after '63 through the 70's. You'd watch the games to see your favorite player, but not to see wins (you'd go to games KNOWING they'd lose) but to see maybe Butkus kick some butt, or Sayers show some flash....and later years it was Walter. But no super bowls. Just the lone one in '85 that we cling to over a quarter century later. Yeah, gotta respect fans like the Jaguar fans. I do respect the die hard ones.

    p.s. This is off-topic, Ski, but thanks for upgrading the message board software. This is really good stuff. The bee's knees :-)
