People often ask what sports teams I root for. It may appear contradictory to support for two teams in the same sport, but I believe it is possible for people to root for multiple sport teams. This isn’t holy matrimony. My heart is big enough for more than just one team.

So here’s how I do it: I rank the teams I like and will root for all of those teams. However, if they are playing each other, I will root for the team at the top of the list.
