    Payton to Denver

    Mcgwire to St Lous

    Gretzky to the Kings

    Walker to the Vikings (giggle)

    Do you cheer for them?
    Do you hate them?

    One of the weirdest feelings for me as a sports fan was watching my hero Junior Seau almost win a ring with the Pats

    All of San Diego loves Junior but 99% of San Diego hates the Pats.. and the Pats were perfect that year..

    Most of America wanted to see them lose...

    In the end my hate for the Pats at the time was stronger than my ability to wish Junior a ring .

    I don't root for the team but I root for the players I like, if they are traded.

    Kinda depends on the terms they left on. My wife is crushed Nick Markakis left his Orioles home and went to Atlanta. ...but we have a cheap owner didnt want to pay...yes we will cheer for him.
    Mike Mussina one of the greatest Oriole pitchers left to go to the Yankees cause he said he wanted a "ring"...that left me bitter couldnt cheer for him.
    Depends i guess....:dontknow:

    Never liked the Jets, hated seeing Tomlinson in their gear.

    Chargers made the right move, still bugs me that they never had post-season success with him.

    "sports hero" is an oxymoron.

    The last player I really cared about was Daryl Strawberry leaving the Mets. It might've been for the best. He had one more good year, then it was all down hill.
