More what? Smor sports, that's what.
Sports provide one of the things that make me, me. A constantly evolving and changing portal to connect me with where I come from. Sports often also create common ground with a stranger when nothing immediately obvious overlaps.
UWBadgers.com provides the basics for all Badger athletics. I received my undergraduate degree from there and happen to love the city of Madison and the school. I'm thrilled when the occasional opportunity surfaces for connecting to the sports teams. Unfortunately, events that espouse the University almost always occur at inconvenient times or in inconvenient places. While I do love the Badgers, I'm not quite willing to suffer through extreme difficulties to observe them. Luckily I can access the site to quench my thirst for them.
The Green Bay Packers occupy the status as the greatest professional sports franchise in existence. Opinions can and do exist for art and sports and politics, but in this one case no alternative opinions contain any validity. One truth exists. That's because a wide swath of people own the team, well, that's one reason. The team can never leave on the whim of an individual owner. Also, it's a professional sports franchise located in a small town. It dominates the place. Heck, it dominates everyone in the State, but in that location it completely dominates. The waiting list for season tickets extends for decades. Also, the team won the league's first two championships. The championship trophy bears the name of the team's coach at that time. Also...well it doesn't matter I guess...if you possess the wrong opinion, I'm probably not swaying you. http://www.packers.com
This team possesses the best name ever. The Milwaukee Brewers. Brewing, and then drinking, beer permeates the culture in Wisconsin and in Milwaukee. The name, the Milwaukee Brewers, directly appeals to the populace who take tremendous pride in the concept of beer. So the name intentionally and specifically appeals to the people. And it does so successfully. I don't live in Wisconsin any more and I don't drink copious amounts of alcohol but a Brewers' tapestry hangs from my wall and numerous Brewers bobbleheads sit on my shelf. I cheer strongly for the Brewers. http://milwaukee.brewers.mlb.com/index.jsp?c_id=mil
It's hard to follow the best sports team of all time and the best team name of all time. The Milwaukee Bucks do not attempt the impossible. But over time, their determination and persistence have endeared them to the locals. They inhabit the city of Milwaukee itself (unlike the Brewer's stadium, Miller Park, which stands far off in the distance). Belief and support in the team equates to belief in and support of the city. The blue collar ethic of the people transfers to a similar consistent tenacity applied to cheering for the local professional basketball franchise. http://www.nba.com/bucks/?tmd=1
