Fridays Are For One Question

If you ask me what sports team I most love to hate, I would answer you very, very quickly:

The New York Yankees.

The Yankees, with their smug pinstripes and World Series trophies… arghhhhh….

But I was shocked this week to read a new study that the most reviled baseball team is NOT the Yankees, but the Cleveland Indians.


But that points to the fact that as much as any of us loves to root for a sports team, we love to hate another team even more. So for this week’s question, let’s go beyond the realm of baseball to sports in general:

“What is the one team you most love to hate?”

**The goal of “One Question Friday” is simple: To show that everyone has something funny, engaging, creative, and worthwhile to say. So comment away! Be real. Be creative. Think hard. And check back to see how others answered the question.

  • Jared Lee says:

    Chicago White Sox, hands down the most evil team in sports.

  • Tim Morrison says:

    Notre Dame. The most evil team in all of sports.

  • The Indianapolis Colts. I am not a fan of the most revered Peyton Manning.

  • Michael K. says:

    Wow. Really? I didn’t think anyone hated the Indianapolis Colts. I stand corrected.

  • Renee Teate says:

    It’s not the team…I’m married to a graduate of Alabama, but I really strongly dislike Nick Saban. He may be the best thing since Bear Bryant, but there is something about that guy. I can’t tell you exactly. It’s in his eyes. They are shifty or something. Shhhh!

  • Steve says:

    I gotta go with Jared: The White Sox.
    At the collegiate level, Alabama and Ole Miss.

  • Michael K. says:

    There’s the college football fans I was expecting. Nobody can hate like the SEC. Or perhaps there’s an Texas hater out there who can rival it?

  • Andy P. says:

    and the most unrightous Duke Blue Devils

  • Michael K. says:

    Now I’m curious – is there anyone out there who does legitimately like the Yankees? There must be if you’ve got to pay a thousand dollars for a hot dog in the new stadium.

  • Brandon says:

    I love the Yankees…ain’t nothing prettier than those pinstripes!

    So, my teams? Nothing gets my blood boiling like the ugly crimson Okies from Oklahoma. Blech.

    And, the Mexican national team is sooooo not my favorite…chanting Osama soon after 9/11 sealed that deal.

  • marcy says:

    Up here in Western Canada I’d say we don’t like the Toronto Maple Leafs or Detroit Redwings 🙂

  • Michael K. says:

    I love it when Forward Progress goes international.

  • ThatGuyKC says:

    The Pittsburgh Steelers.

  • Nanette R. says:

    I grew up in the metro NYC area, so I am an unashamed Yankees fan. I’ve even been out on the field (with my high school marching band) at the old Yankees stadium. Didn’t have to pay $1000 for a hotdog, but it was back in the 80s.

  • Jen Clapp says:

    Tennessee. I hate Tennessee. (the SEC team, not the state)

  • Jared says:

    The Yankees (including their fans)
