Do you and your fiancé(e) wear the same colors on game day? Or do you have a sports rivalry? Would you rather be on opposing sides or team up together? Are you and your fiancé(e) rivals or teammates?

    Neither, really! I’m the sports fan in the household (go NY Giants and UNC Tar Heels!) while FH always just roots for the underdog.

    I am a Cowboys fan and my husband is an Eagles fan. In our vows we said we would love each other even if the others team beat ours and that we would root against the Giants together.

    We don't usually watch the NFL, but we have this year because the Chiefs are so fun to watch (we're from KC)! We're more college sports fans. He is a KSU (Kansas State) fan/alum and I'm a KU (Kansas) fan, so that keeps it...interesting haha. We're really big Big 12 fans though and we hate the SEC, so at least we can agree on that!

    For the most part we root for the same teams, but now that sports (especially football) have gotten too political, we don’t really watch anymore

    We aren't sports fans. The only sporting events we watch are professional rock climbing competitions and we root for all of the climbers so I guess that makes us teammates.

    We would have worn different teams.. He's a raiders fan and I'm a Vikings fan.. This year he has to work and going out with friends instead of watching the Super Bowl

    We agree on baseball and hockey teams, but are rivals in football and college basketball! (We can be nice though and support the other when needed. )

    Spurs and Yankees -- luckily we're different sports! It works!

    Neither one of us are sports fans, but I like college sports when it's Baylor University, so we root for them together. He attended West Virginia University for a bit, so he'll jokingly root for them when they play against Baylor, but he truly doesn't care.

    We fell in love because we both love the same baseball team.
    Every room in our house has something of our team in it - we even have a shower curtain with our team logo.

    Our invitations are going to be themed to our team. Our cake topper as well.

    We are die hard.

    (Go Philly!)

    My FH is the most serious sports fan I have ever met, he's actually is the one who got me into football so were on the same side (Redskins fans, its a sad life). His family has season tickets, but i'm not allowed to sit next to him because i "ask too many questions" lol

    Who is the Yankees fan?! I'm Yankees (even though I'm from Boston hehe)

    Do you two watch each other's sports together or do you keep it pretty separate?

    My sweet Long Islander fiance is! When we started dating he immediately became a spurs fan, it took me a couple of years to be a yankees fan, but I'm here now! We like to examine Didi Gregorious' tweets after games. How did you become a yankees fan in Boston? That seems unusual!

    We are pretty similar in teams we are fans of.

    I always tell people that i am a Patriots fan by relation. My sister became a pats fan because of a mentor and her boyfriend, and then i met my FH who was also a pats fan. Coming from a house where we didn't really watch football, it has made my mom happy to have something to do and root for as a family!

    GO PATS!

    I was never really into baseball but my boyfriend is a huge Yankees fan! So eventually it caught on. I'm hoping my love of the Patriots catches on with him but I don't think it will happen. He desperately wants to name our next dog "Judge" after Aaron Judge!

    Are you and your FS going to/hosting a SuperBowl party?!
