Celebrities' Favorite Teams

Celebrities, like all of us, are huge sports fans. Actress Ashley Judd has been rooting for her Kentucky Wildcats basketball team since she went to school there in the early '90s. She even travels to Kentucky road games. Spike Lee is always courtside at Knicks' games talkin' trash to opposing players. And who can forget Jack Nicholson, who has been a Lakers' fan since the Magic Johnson days!

We break down which teams the celebs like to root for. They also like teams for different reasons. Some cheer for their home team, some own the team and some are married to someone on the team. We've provided you with a key to the reasons why - (ht)=hometown, (o)=owner, (sp)=spouse, (cc)=current city.

"FBGirl" wrote:I like cheerleading, but definitely NOT a sport! Sports are physical activity with competition and GEAR. The closest thing cheerleaders have to gear are pom-poms. And, yeah. Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!

All cheerleaders and coaches put A LOT of effort and time into making and practicing cheers. It is true that cheerleaders turn people and the players on...but it's much more than that. it's about having fun, teamwork, having some more fun, getting some exercise (uh that kinda makes it a sport right?), and great times with the other girls on your squad.   Rant over lol
