Where's that team from?

Post by greeneyed » October 11, 2013, 6:48 pm

Just watching the Giants and Bears match on ESPN, and I reckon I have much more idea where US sports teams are based, in terms of the cities they come from, than I have any idea about where union teams in the "Super" Union competition come from.

So this is a bit of a game for the off season... "Where's that team from?"

I'll start...

Where are the NFL Giants and Bears from?

The person who gets it poses the next question.

New York and Chicago.

The Ducks and the Sooners?
Avatar Bet - bleedgreen99 - Raiders to make (BG99)/miss(Lucy) the 8. Avatar from last round of regular season 2015 until GF 2016.
Signature Bet - Raider85 - Raiders to get(Lucy)/miss(R85) the wooden spoon. Signature for entire offseason.
Bottle of something to the value of $70 - Matthew Borewood to not see (Lucy)/to see (Piggles) a first grade game in 2015 for the Warriors.
The Name Change Bet - Regarding the three bets above;
I win all three I keep my name.
I win one I become "the Punish"
I lose all I become "Chicken Little"
