David Letterman: Indianapolis Colts

Blake Shelton might be from Oklahoma, but since there is no NFL team for the country singer’s team, he’s a serious fan of the Arizona Cardinals. He says he’s been a team fan since the mid-1990s. The singer can often be seen wearing team gear. In 2015, he made a video for the team’s website, in which he said he became friends with Larry Fitzgerald himself, the legend of the Cardinals.

He claimed he was “not happy” about it. Chris has been seen at many Vikings games in recent years, including in 2019. Unless he wants a rather awkward conversation, he might be wiser to avoid the quarterback.
Jeff Goldblum: Pittsburgh Steelers
Perhaps one of the most celebrated NFL history teams is the Pittsburgh Steelers, making sense that they have some very famous fans. One of which just so happens to be Jeff Goldblum, the one and only one. He was born and raised in the Pittsburgh area and said he had Steelers season tickets growing up in his family, meaning he never missed his father’s home game.

In 2018, when his Redskins beat Curry’s favorite team, the Panthers beat his then-teammate Steph Curry.
Macklemore: Seattle Seahawks
As Benjamin Haggerty, Rapper Macklemore is actually somewhat connected with the Seattle Seahawks or any other Seattle-based team. When it comes to the Seahawks, no matter what, regardless of their success, he shows his support for them. So, it makes sense that he is a native of Seattle. He has a song titled “My Oh My,” in which he pays an ode to former color commentator Dave Niehaus of the Seattle Mariner. We can’t help but appreciate those fans, no matter what, who stick to their hometown teams.
Alyssa Milano: New York Giants
As an actress in Charmed, you might know her, but Alyssa Milano is a sports fanatic. As a Brooklyn native, she grew up with her love of the New York Giants, among other sports. She actually launched her own line of clothing called “Touch,” which has NASCAR and NFL-related items. She’s also a woman of her word, however. In many interviews, she’s been raving about the Giants’ defense. This certainly shows that she cares and might even look through the box scores.
Tara Reid: Philadelphia Eagles
You’re probably familiar with Tara Reid from American Pie. Like many other celebrities, she’s a Philadelphia Eagles fan – even though she grew up in New Jersey. As for her most recent career developments, she has a big role in the Sharknado series. With her eyebrow-raising career antics, we are unsure if she just randomly roots for the Eagles or because she likes the team’s colors. We accept it, whatever it may be.
