This is fun for all of us depressed fans whose teams are stuck sitting at home this month...

Basically, you tell it what team you usually root for (or you can say that you don't root for any team); it asks you five random questions and then gives you a bandwagon to jump on.

Answering honestly I got the Jets, which is fine by me since they haven't been eliminated (yet) and they're not one of the teams in the playoffs I dislike (Colts, Giants) or utterly despise (Eagles). It's cool, though, playing around with it and seeing what it gives you based on how you answer the questions (once you figure out how each of the questions translates).

It picked the Cowboys for me, which is pretty sweet actually because that's probably the team left that I'm pulling for the most. If it had picked the Saints or the Colts, I'd have thrown my computer out the window.

UPDATE: Well shit.

I got the Saints, which is cool with me. I'm happy Brees is having a good season, I picked up Marques Colston on my fantasy team, and Reggie Bush was exactly how I thought he'd be: mostly mediocre.

Great. I just got the Cowboys, the team that just lost in the worst way humanly possible. Nuts to that.

Hell no. I'm a Chiefs fan (as those who complained about my old sig probably know), and it gave me the Colts. Fuck that.

This thing's really got a problem with New England, apparantly - I just went back and did it again now that the Jets are eliminated, and it gave me the Chargers, who New England play next. Yeesh. (I imagine it was either that or the Saints, since they're similar in a lot of way, and I figure that this thing wouldn't give me an in-division rival to cheer for.)

I got into the source file for the questions. It's at , or at least it was there when I downloaded it.

Incidentally, they need to improve their Firefox support. I had plenty of times where the sound got messed up, and one time it got stuck on the montage scene before it announces your team.

There are some interesting things:

As suspected, it eliminates division rivals of the team you say you are a fan of.

It divides teams up into
Warm/Cold Weather (which sounds like it would be the same, but Tennessee is listed as a southern cold weather team),
Big Market/Small Market,
Historical Name/Animal Name,
Older Team/Newer Team,
Teams With/Without A Super Bowl Ring,
Teams Better At Home/On Road,
Many/Few Penalties,
Passing/Running Team (if you get this question, it eliminates Baltimore no matter which option you pick. Chicago is listed as a passing team, oddly enough. They must be including passes to the other team),
Defensive/Offensive Team,
Early Games/Late Games (only Baltimore and New Orleans are listed as teams playing early games. Both played two night games this season, while the other playoff teams have at least 3),
Coach With/Without Facial Hair,
A Team With Many/Few Stars (San Diego and New Orleans are listed as having few stars),
Many Rookies/Veterans,
4th Down Tendencies (New England and New Orleans go for it on 4th),
Teams With/Without Cheerleaders (only the Bears are in the without among playoff teams), and
Team Built Through Draft/Free Agency (New Orleans and Philadelphia are the Free Agency Teams).

There is some method for choosing a team if your answers conflict, but I'm not sure what it was.

It can also ask you about your favorite college team. As far as I can tell, this doesn't change your answer. But if the team it picks has players from the college team you tell it, it will say that at the end. I was going to list all the colleges that have alumni on active playoff teams, but it was a long list.

So, I got the Bears. I can't think of a team that I am rooting for less than the Bears.

I think I will pick my own team rather than rely on this, though it was quite entertaining.

See, I don't get the need in doing that. A lot of fans will respect teams that are in the same division as their team that go farther come playoff time. For example, I know that probably most Bucs fans (myself included) are gonna be rooting for New Orleans over that evil Eagle scum this weekend...

I done this two times yesterday. First time I did it, I got the Colts; second time around, I landed the Bears.
