Stars Who Played for Two of Your Favorite Teams

Recommended Posts

I don't post on here very often anymore, but I recently had a thought that I believed other board members may share.  I happen to have more than one favorite team in each sport, and this is primarily because I didn't grow up in just one place. There have been star players who have played for both of my favorite teams, but this doesn't happen often.  I'll post those below.  My question is, how many other board members also have had star athletes or favorite players whom have donned uniforms of both of your favorite teams?

 

Gary Sheffield - Marlins/Brewers

Brian Stork - won a national title with FSU, & a SB with the Patriots.  That's pretty heady qualification there, even if I never thought much of him more than just some guy.

 

Alas(?) I've never had multiple favs in one sport.

There's really only one sport where I have a secondary team, baseball. But Randy Johnson comes to mind as having played for the Diamondbacks and Yankees.

I've always kinda been a fan of the New Jersey Devils along with the Minnesota Wild... Now I know what you're thinking... I'm not actually going to say Parise. Sure He's great, but I never really payed THAT much attention to the Devils. The one player that played for both that I really liked was Ryan Carter... He's from my hometown of White Bear Lake, and he was always fun to watch with the Devils, and now with the Wild. (Although I don't think the Wild resigned him this year...) :(

My first thought was whether anyone played for the North Stars and Wild...with only a 7-year gap it woulda been possible.  But I am pretty sure that never happened.

 

I am a one-team guy, though when I was a kid, I had all sorts of secondary teams based often on uniforms.  

  • Paul Molitor: Brewers and Twins.  Back in the 1980s I liked the Brewers because my uncle (a former Mil. Braves fan) did.  And we went to Milwaukee every year to see the Twins play outdoors.  So I liked the Brewers in those days. I would not put, say, Carlos Gomez in this category because I don't care about the Brewers any more.
  • Anthony Carter: Played for the Vikings and eventually the Lions, who I liked at the time because of Barry Sanders.

I am sure there are other marginal players...I liked the Bengals and Bucs into the mid-1990s.  The Spurs in the early 1990s.  The Celtics in the 80s.  The Red Wings in the 1980s and early 1990s.

 

I enjoy when players from my alma mater (Wisconsin) play for my pro teams.  This includes Ryan Suter, Tom Gilbert, Michael Bennett, Erasmus James (bust), and for four games Paul Grant.  But I guess "stars" is in the title, so this does not apply here.

I grew up in Miami, and moved to Massachusetts at age 20. I spent my first two collegiate years at FIU. Having said that, here's one:

 

Mike Lowell

- College: FIU

- Marlins

- Red Sox

 

So who can beat a three-team deal?
