Fan Poll/Washington Post
« Topic Start: October 23, 2011, 11:55:10 AM »
Found this to be an interesting article/poll in today's Post about "fans" in the DC area:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/dcsportsfans

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/sports/postpoll_DCsportspoll_1011.html

Personally in order, I'm a football, baseball, hockey, basketball, soccer fan or  Steelers, Nats, Caps, Wiz, United (and more so generally like the Premier League).    I also like the "good story" in season,  i.e.   Manchester City beating United, Cam Newton, Michigan State beating Wisconsin, Pujols, MD basketball, Ovie vs Sid the Kid, John Wall, etc.

Megafan. I am guessing nearly all of us are the same. Dull poll.

I was on that train as well.    Hell, the OP must have needed filler.   I guess what surprised me is the Steelers didn't poll higher :)

I have absolutely bailed out on boxing.   I won't watch it.   What is "meh"?

Donovan McNabb rated the same as Frank Howard as "Greatest sports figure in DC history" :?

I'm down to caring about the Nats and Skins and occasionally watching college football if there is a good matchup. I'd say mega on both, but for football, it's more because I usually have 980 on in the background and all they ever talk about is football
