The great thing about sports is you can root for any team you want, no matter where you live. There are no rules saying you have to pull for the local favorites. And yes, I have rooted for the Razorbacks all my life, but it was much more fun when I was living in Texas. That same “wild frontier” with no laws also means you can “hate” whoever you want. For me, a baseball lover, it’s an easy choice: the New York Yankees. They’ve won more than anyone else, and with the enactment of free agency and the free-spending ways of owner George Steinbrenner, it was a natural choice to root against the Yankees. It has nothing to do with the people of New York, though Yankees fans are known for being quite nasty when visiting fans try to deal with them at Yankee Stadium. It has more to do with rooting against the favorites, the perennial winners.
