I live in Delaware. On our local channels we get Washington, Baltimore and philly. Been a broncos fan since 97 when I was 7. Picked the redskins as my local team. Outside of football, I am a Detroit fan. No real explanation why. I have taken a weekend trip to see the Tigers in Detroit as well as their Triple A affiliate Toledo.
I live in the New York City and have grown up with the Yankees, Knicks and Giants.
The only non-NY team I root for would be the San Antonio Spurs. Since the early 2000's.
Love the way they run their organization. Old school while still being miles ahead of everyone else. Fundamentals down. One of the greatest, most respected coaches in history.
They remind me of the New England Patriots in how they can win with almost anyone on their team. They make the right trades, pick up the right free agents, draft the right rookies, and keep the right veterans.
Even without Duncan, Parker and Ginobli, I see them being a top team again within a couple of years.

My Football (soccer) team is Leeds United, but given that they haven't been in the Premier League in over 15 years, I do root for a Premier League team in Tottenham (they kinda won me over in 2010 or so when they pissed on Man City's cornflakes and took the last Champions League spot).
I guess I can count my NFL support too, because although I do support the Jags as the default UK team, lately I've been pretty much sympathy cheering the Browns, especially after they arguably got robbed of a playoff berth by a ton of refball last year.
