 I support Tigers that is one of the Japanese baseball teams. Tigers always lose but has a lot of fan. Even if the team lose games, we hope that the team will be champion next season. I have the same writer's opinion. I like the phrase that supporting a team's like being part of family, sharing the same dream, desire and disappointments.

My favorite team is Manchester because of Ji sung Park. His from korea and I'm from korea too, but after I read this article, I prefer another team then  Manchester.

I don't support the strong team that always wins. Usually I would support a weaker team because there is a lot of joy and satisfaction when the underdog wins. Thank you.
