Re: your favorite sports teams...
I find my like for teams can be traced to a player that I looked up to as a kid...
MLB: Reds (Johnny Bench - I was a catcher and he was the best)
NFL: Steelers (Jack Lambert - Darth Vader in Cleats just loved wathcing him play)
NBA: I dont follow anymore, when I did, Celtics, originally for Dave Cowens and Larry Bird, eventually for Dennis Johnson)
NHL: Sabres - Not player in particular, weekend visits to my uncle's place where he watched the Sabres got me interested. I got hooked in collge with Pat LaFontaine.
NCAA: Syracuse - Roosevelt Bowie. He grew up about 10 minutes from where I did, so as a kid, everyone talked about him and his work at Syracuse. Then Pearl Washington and Don McPherson in the 80s roped mein all the way.
Nothing to see here. Please disperse.
