I quite frequently catch myself speaking of "we" and "us" when talking about the Preds, like I am actually out there taking faceoffs and making saves. Getting invested in a team is part of what makes being a sports fan and sporting events so much fun in the first place. But I was wondering how fellow OTFers felt about the use of first person when referring to a team you follow. Obviously, this is not a very important topic, but is my effort to burn some of my nervous energy as I eagerly await the final few games and playoffs.
Is it proper fan etiquette to use "we" and "us" to refer to a favorite team? (As in, "We really took it to the Wings last night!")
