These two “South Park” creators are from Colorado, which not only tracks with their famous adult cartoon creation but also with their sports allegiances. They’re known to mention both Broncos quarterback John Elway (a Super Bowl winner and now president of the same team) and Jay Cutler (who was drafted by the Broncos before going on to throw lots of interceptions for the Bears.)
“South Park,” while being wild at times, is still somewhat grounded in reality, so sports figures from the area often get mentioned. Plus, the characters all have a good dose of Broncos gear in their homes.
Indianapolis Colts: Rob Lowe
Just like his character on “Parks and Recreation,” Rob Lowe is a big Indy fan. In fact, he's not only a fan; he's a friend of Colts owner Jim Irsay and even had the chance to break the news that former Colts QB Peyton Manning would be retiring...which turned out not to be true.
He's no fair-weather fan; he can be spotted at a lot of their home games, whether they're on their way to the Super Bowl or tanking for the number one pick. If you spot him around Hollywood, there's a good chance he'll have some blue on him.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Gene Hackman
Hackman hasn't been a fan of the Jags for his entire life, but he started adding his voice to the roars when his friend Jack Del Rio became the head coach for eight years, starting in 2003. The Oscar-winning actor still pulls for the Jags, though he stays pretty quiet about it. Overall, being of an older generation that doesn't have as much of a presence on social media.
The Jaguars have been enjoying a growing fanbase in recent years, teasing at the edges of the playoffs and sneaking in every once in a while. We wonder, does Hackman ever show up to watch a game?
Washington Football Team: Matthew McConaughey
While this famous actor is Texas-born and raised, he actually pulls for one of the Cowboys' biggest rivals, the Football Team. The answer is simple: he was four years old, and he liked hamburgers. It tracks so far. Number fifty-five in Washington was, at the time, Chris Hanburger. At four years old, the choice was clear.
He recalls his parents allowing him to stay up late as a child so he could watch Washington play during prime time and also remembers skipping church to listen to his preferred team on the radio of his parent's car. Despite rooting for a dangerous team in Texas, he is a stalwart in his fandom.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Snoop Dogg
Snoop is the kind of guy that knows what he likes. Even though he grew up in Long Beach, California, he's been a big fan of the Steelers ever since he was a kid in the seventies. Some have thrown the bandwagon fan accusation at him, but he knows his stuff.
He isn't afraid to celebrate the team's successes and equally unabashed in his comments when something goes poorly — he's called out coaches and players in his Instagram videos. He says that it was the Mean Joe Green Coca-Cola commercial that turned him on to the franchise, and he greatly enjoyed watching the vaunted defense push opponents around on the field.
