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.

Cheer leading, I think, is not a sport. I mean the girls who are cheer leaders never go are the girls teams but never miss a team where there are boys. So if it was a sport then shouldn't they cheer for all the students who are play a certain game where cheer leading is needed/allowed? Maybe in some schools it is a sport but in most, it isn't. -_-'

I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.
