You could just read my signature, but I guess that's no fun... College Team 1.0 - Alabama - I was bred to be an insane Alabama fan. My dad's side of the family is from there and he graduated from there in the late 70s. In the hospital room I was born in, an Alabama basketball game was on TV. I can't remember a time where I was not an Alabama fan, even during the DuBose and Franchoine eras. The opinion in my parent's house is that if you don't remember the Freddie Kitchens led Tide teams, you are a bandwagon fan. College Team 2.0 - Appalachian State - Since Fall of '05 when I got accepted during my senior year of high school. I jumped on right before the national championship run and admittedly got spoiled that in my first two years in school, we won 2 national championships in football, had a hell of a run in men's basketball in 06-07 (should have made the tournament, and then got gypped with an away game at Ole Miss in the NIT), and oh yeah, beat Michigan at the Big House. I think that day was the day I was locked in to being a Mountaineer fan for life. I'm a "booster" and have had football season tickets since I graduated in 2010. NFL - New York Jets - Probably the least "solid" of any of my fandoms, since I'm usually exhausted from watching college football from Thursday-Saturday. My dad was a Jets fan because of Joe Namath (Alabama connection), and I picked it up sadly. Plus Chad Pennington was my favorite player as I went up the ranks of playing football myself. NBA - Atlanta Hawks - I grew up in Atlanta and we had season tickets at the Omni growing up. Dominique Wilkins was my idol growing up as opposed to Michael Jordan. When he got traded, my world was crushed. Though players like Mutombo and Steve Smith quickly filled the gap. I try to forget that the Lon Kruger era existed and that they passed on CP3 for Marvin Williams. Plus, what 6 year-old can resist the giant hawk jersey? MLB - Atlanta Braves - Grew up in Atlanta and played baseball growing up, so it was kind of the default. I wore #10 in little league and Chipper Jones was my favorite player. One of my favorite memories as a kid was after moving to Delaware, my parents took us to a game when the Braves were in town. I (and my three siblings) have a ball signed by Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, and John Smoltz. It's actually in my safe deposit box. My wife and I still go back for 2-3 series a year. BPL - Everton - My newest fandom, as I got bit by the soccer bug last summer during the World Cup. I don't think I've missed a game the past two seasons. I'm not sure how I picked the Toffees, except for the fact Tim Howard plays for them. It just kind of happened. Other teams: UNC - my wife is/grew up as a fan of the Heels and it rubbed off. Doesn't hurt we live 20 minutes from campus and can usually get tickets cheap. Carolina Hurricanes - I get free tickets through work. I like free.
