Thats how I picked my NBA side, Charlotte Hornets, the Muggsy Bogues and Larry Johnson days, and my NHL side, Pitsburg Pengins with good old Jaromir Jagr at like 90 odd overall, because as we all know, there are 3 things set in life, death, taxes and Jaromir Jagr playing in the All Stars game. I dont have time to watch or play either now.Fuifui Bradbrad wrote: ↑January 23, 2019, 6:02 amThere’s the Fui method.

I liked the place when I visited. And the team played well when I became vaguely interested in the sport. Is there some other more acceptable rubric for choosing an NFL team I missed?
I dont really have time for sport much anymore. 2 kids makes that tougher. So, NBA is gone, my Soccer viewing is down to basic passing glances of the EPL and A-League and Australia FTA games - so, I barely know who is good and who isnt, and dont really recognize anyone anymore. BBL is now a case of only watching after my wife says 'there is nothing on'. AFL is down to the odd game once a month. Meaning my time is focused on Test Cricket, NRL and NFL. Its not enough IMO, but thats about as far as the time stretches these days.
SPL was Celtics because of Viduka (The green helped also)
EPL was Leeds because of Kewell, then Viduka. When they scored Fowler, that sealed the deal completely.
NBA was Raptors because of Vince Carter.
NHL was Ducks because of Charlie Conway, Adam Banks and Russ Tyler
I’m in the same boat as you, minus the kids. Just don’t have the time to get into sports as much as I used to. I’ve tried getting into AFL, following the Roos (No logic to picking them, just picked a team I like the colours of), but there’s not enough hours in the day to follow it all. I just browse the forums now to keep updated
