The "support your team" challenge
Today, sport is a big part of our world. Despite Churchill, i think it's possible to love sport. I don't think Sprt and elegance are antinomic.
Most of Championships have started in September, there is the Rugby World Cup, Basketaball European Cup finished last weekend etc...
So, the challenge is very simple, you have to show your support to your favorite team, but steel in an elegant way (could be with a pattern, a color, a symbol for exemple)

Not like that :



Put the pictures of the emblem of your favorite club or national team just next to the pictures of your outfit.

Casual and formal entries are accepted.

Schedule: Entries must be posted by midnight GMT on Friday. The poll will go up some time on Saturday (because i'll be on trip after that), and will close at midnight GMT on Monday.

Let's play !

If I only had a gray suit, I could do the Spurs.

I have zero interest in team sports, but I'll see if I can come up with something anyway.

Although I am also one of those unfortunate Cowboys fans (ever since the Oilers jumped ship).

Why not follow the Oilers to Tennessee? Same team, same colors. Cowboys support is understandable as a birth defect, but to choose it?

I'll only play and represent the Gunners if @Murlsquirl plays and represents Manchester United. I get burgundy; he has to make bright red work!

Same team, same colors, but no longer Texan. That being said, I certainly was rooting for them when this broke my heart:


Sadly, I missed out on the good years of Cowboys fandom. And god being an Astros fan is tragic (I was in college when we "played" in the World Series)

I can't complain too much: I've been spoiled as a Spurs/Rockets fan (born in Houston and a huge fan of them both--watched Olajuwon demolish Robinson in person in a WCF game). Generally rooted for Rockets over Spurs, but growing up in San Antonio, Spurs made a strong push in my heart late 90s. The new uniforms and the trading of Olajuwon caused the switch; sometime during the Lakers three-peat I began rooting for the Spurs over the Rockets. Still my two favorite teams, and I always hope they meet in the playoffs: I'll be pretty happy regardless of who wins, so it's a rare and truly enjoyable game where I can sit back, relax, and enjoy basketball while still caring about the teams I'm watching).

I'm a pretty loyal Texan. I don't think I'd ever root for a non-Texan team over a Texan team ever. With one exception. One bizarre, bizarre exception. In fact, Butchy, maybe just sit down before you unspoiler.

What's weird is their inability to win big games. And liking them didn't this from being the second greatest game I've ever watched (not in person):



Greatest game I've ever watched (not in person):




(You better believe Horry makes that shot. Christ that game was incredable. Horry came out of nowhere, scoring 21 points in the last minute of the third quarter, fourth quarter, and OT. And they left him open!!! God that was a great game. Ugly, defensive basketball at its finest. It was the WWI trench warfare of Finals games. Probably my second favorite NBA Finals, behind the '14 Spurs but ahead of the 93-94 Rockets, 94-95 Rockets, 99, 03, and 07 Spurs).

Of course, little can compare to seeing this in person (except maybe remembering it. That would be nice. I think I was 10).

(mind you, Robinson had just won NBA MVP and was NBA All Defensive First Team that year. Their stats that series:
Olajuwon: 35.3PPG, 56%FG, 12.5RPG, 5.0APG, 1.3SPG, 4.2BPG
Robinson: 23.8PPG, 44.9%FG, 11.8RBG, 2.7APG, 1.5SPG, 2.2BPG)
