Who Do You Root AGAINST?! (Not just when they play your team)
This is the place to discuss everything from who has the best burger in the State of Kentucky, to where you buy your underwear. Anything and everything is up for debate, discussion and just plain fun! The Break Room is where High School Sports enthusiasts spend their "off-season".

High School...none really
College Football...Michigan and Notre Dame
MLB...Yankees and Cardinals (used to be Dodgers back in the day)
NHL...guess I'd have to follow it in the first place
The New England Patriots... Oh how I loathe them...
High School - None
College - Ohio St.
MLB - Cardinals, Yanks
NFL - Pittsburgh Steelers - They are the worst!
High School: no one of consequence.
College Basketball: Syracuse, Georgetown, Villanova. But only in the regular season. If I pick em in my NCAA pool I'm a fan.
College Football: Not really anyone. My life is a little more serene if Ohio State and Notre Dame both lose a couple games a year.
MLB: none. Used to hate the Yankees, but since the Jeter era, I can't root against them anymore.
NBA: none. The new Clippers annoy me, but they're a mild nuisance.
Anyone playing NCC at the time
CUBS and Cardinals Yankees and Red Sox
Steelers, Ravens and Jets
Heat and Kings
United and Chelsea
St Henry , Trinity then

College - Ohio State, Xavier, USC, Florida State, Duke
MLB - Cardinals, Yankees, Red Sox
NFL - Patriots, Ravens, Cowboys, 49ers - in that order.
NBA - Lakers, Heat
NHL - N/A
NASCAR - N/A
Louisville and the Yankees.
High school - No one (high school sports are insanely boring)
College - Ohio State, Louisville
MLB - Yankees, Cardinals, Braves
NFL - Jets, Giants, Steelers, Ravens
NBA - Heat, Spurs
High School: Nobody. I dislike coaches, not schools
College Basketball: Duke, UC, and IU has a special place of hatred in my heart.
College Football: The Ohio State University
NBA: Whoever is playing the Celtics
NFL: Want to hate the Steelers, but I can only find a strong dislike for Big Ben. Sick of him talking about injuries in the media.
MLB: Tony LaRussa, but now nobody
Soccer: Mexico and Italy
I am with Mex...I do not root against high schools, but some coaches annoy me...I cannot stand IU (mostly b/c of Bully Knight), Big Ben, Ohio St., & LaRussa...
A serious question. My wife would say the same thing about Indiana (can't stand The General).
How long does a coach have to be gone for the "rooting against" to subside?
My guess is "never" in the case of the wife.
I just can't get over my dislike for IU fans. Going to school in Indiana during IU's impressive run to the Finals was AWFUL. Their nose is permanently in the air.
