Dear Poll: Who Do You Root for?

For some reason, I like winners to win. I like to see the jock dating the head of the cheerleading squad, but I have a lot of friends who are always rooting for the underdog — they want the self-proclaimed nerd to take the most popular girl in school to the prom. I'm not sure what it says about me that I want the champs to keep winning, but what I want to know is, who do you root for? The underdog or the champion?

I can see why people root for champions, because they can take on mythic proportions. They are the dependable heroes. But I usually prefer an underdog that plays with a lot of heart. That way every worthy person has a taste of victory.

A little bit of both for me. In sports, I like underdog stories UNLESS they're against my team, then screw 'em, lol. I'm a loyal fan through good and bad. In life I cheer for the underdog.

I love the underdog. I'm always the undedog rooter. Even when it's good guy bad guy types of situations. Most of the time I want the villian to win. Never seems to happen that way but I have faith for the future!

Underdogs of course. Though I like seeing underdogs with underdogs not with champions.
