I've been a Clemson Tigers fan my whole life growing up in South Carolina. Being from South Carolina also means that when it comes to pro sports, my affiliations are random, because of course there aren't local pro sports teams to follow. Baseball, I of course follow the Braves since they're the team of the South. Had I been born a few years later when the Carolina Panthers were already going I would've probably just been a fan of them, but I had already fallen in love with the mystique of the bad ass Raiders (and I thought that Bo Jackson was about the most bad ass person ever) so the Panthers had to settle for being my secondary team by the time they came along. I first learned to watch hockey because of a buddy of mine whose family was from Michigan, so I became a Red Wings fan. And then there are the San Antonio Spurs. People who I'm a Raiders fan as well accuse me of just liking the colors of Silver and Black, but the Spurs really hadn't even embraced that whole theme when I first started following them as they still had that awful "fiesta colors" logo and court design. I became a Spurs fan because I admired David Robinson, who happened to have the best nickname in all of sports, and it was solidified for life when they drafted Tim Duncan, whom I had liked watching during his college career at Wake Forest even as he was singlehandedly shredding some of the best basketball teams Clemson has ever had. So there you have it, the story behind how I managed to assemble the most ridiculous collection of teams to root for ever assembled.
