I do not like the Detroit Lions. I will discuss the team with Lions fans, but I find them to be some of the most annoying fans in sports. I root against them when they are playing. I keep it to myself around their fans though. I went to a playoff party during their playoff game last year... I was secretly rooting against the Lions when everybody else was rooting for them.
Living in NYC, I am surrounded by Yankee fans, but it's generally bad business to go around talking about how much I detest the Yankees. If someone actually is into baseball and wants to chat about it, I'll talk smack about how we own them in the post season and that they have half their roster on the disabled list right now, etc. But I'm not going to walk into a crowded subway car and announce that I hate douchebag Yankee fans.
(Also, in fairness, most of their fans were born here. It's not like they live in Michigan and root for the Yankees, Cowboys, Lakers and Duke. Sure, they could have been Mets fans, in theory, but most people inherit their teams from their dads/grandpas/etc. And while they're certainly spoiled and have ridiculous expectations, they're dead serious about baseball and aren't really fair-weather fans. So while I hate what the Yankees stand for in the MLB, I can't begrudge my coworker who has been rooting for them since he can remember his fandom.)
You'll only find Mets fans in Queens, it seems.
Yet as a typical New Yorker who couldn't get into the ivies you head west to Michigan and proclaim your love for scum. I bet everyone loves your accent too.
Keeping the sunshiners in check since 2000.
How could you hate the Lions. That's like making fun of a kid with a learning disability.
hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
Im surviving UT football, but only because my kid goes there. She hates the football team, partly because she is a Gator and partly because she hates watching them sleep in class, but she enjoys the rest of the teams.
Im currently wearing a UT ROWING hat. God help me.
edit: I will not wear Vols attire. If it doesnt say LadyVols Rowing I will not wear it.

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
Let me guess, you're a UM and New England Patriots fan, and you've recently really started liking the Miami Heat.
