OK to have two favorite teams?
Former pro wrestler Ric Flair gave a pep talk -- and apparently a good one -- to the San Francisco 49ers before their victory over the Green Bay Packers in the NFL's wild-card playoff round. One person who wasn't happy with the show of confidence was Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith. It seems Flair was previously friendly with the Panthers players and has long had North Carolina ties. Because of the 49ers speech, Smith said he would no longer welcome Flair to talk to the Panthers. 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, meanwhile, doesn't understand the problem with supporting two teams.
