Grantland: Blazers Fans Should Cheer For Newcastle United

Roger Bennett and Michael Davies write on Grantland.com that every NBA fanbase should adopt a soccer club during the lockout, and offers suggestions for each team. According to the duo, Portland Trail Blazers fans should root for the English Premier League's Newcastle United. -------------------------- You have a nasty case of Blazermania — a love so blind it compels you to bellow for your team, whatever the result. As one of the most rabid fan bases in pro sports, you are born to be a NEWCASTLE UNITED fan. Few teams mean more to their fans, despite giving them so little in return. In the same vein as Portland’s "Jail Blazers," the law has often presented more of a challenge for Newcastle than opposing teams. But an injection of talent has transformed results, and Geordie fans, fueled by multiple pints of Newcastle Brown Ale, are living proof that few acts are more joyous than cheering for your local team. NEXT STEP: Learn to decode the splendor of Newcastle-based Jersey Shore equivalent, Geordie Shore, without the aid of subtitles. -------------------------- Your new favorite soccer team's website can be found here. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
