As I consider leaving Houston in search for a better opportunity in a different city, I started thinking about how difficult it would be to root for my Houston teams. I was not born in Houston, but I warmed up to Houston sports teams very easily. Having people around me that are crazy for their hometown teams definitely made that easier.
Nowadays, it's easier to become a fan of a team other than the one that plays in your hometown. Teh Internetz, Sattelite/Dish/Cable sports packages, ESPN and of course your cellphone. You now have access to your favorite teams 24/7. You gotta love technology. We might not have flying cars yet, but we can find out if our favorite team won the game with a click of a button/mouse.
So I ask you this BRB, What are the difficulties that you've faced rooting for a team that doesn't play in your city/country.
