Obviously, a lifelong Gamecock fan, as well as alum.
I abhor bandwagon teams (LA, Cowboys, Yankees)
But I'd also like to 'pick' a team that is not a perennial cellar-dweller.
I'm not looking for self-flagellation. In other words, I'm not trying to 'pick' the EPL equivalent to the Chicago Cubs (yes, I realize some might characterize the Gamecocks as the CFB equivalent of the Cubs...)
I prefer some American connections that I can get behind.
What team(s), in your opinion, would be good for me to consider looking into further?
Up and coming team with a lot of young talent. Got a new manager last year, Roberto Martinez (who has been on the ESPN World Cup broadcast and shows), almost made the Champions League last year. American connection - the goalkeeper for Everton is Tim Howard. Last year, he had his best season for them. Landon Donovan also played for Everton at one time.
