I am, of course, rooting for my favorite soccer team, Inter Milan.
How are they my favorite team, you ask? Well, four years ago during the World Cup, I visited several soccer sites and checked out some of their “stores.” One of them had it sectioned off by teams, and Inter, I realized, has the same color scheme as my favorite (American) football team, the Carolina Panthers.
And thus, a favorite team was created. They’ve actually been on quite a tear since the World Cup, so it’s been a good time to be a fan.
Oh, and if you think that’s a bad reason to like a team, remind me to tell you why I (successfully) picked the Italians to win the last World Cup, and how I selected them to be my team.
