Sports Bio

Anyone that's read my posts knows I'm a diehard Detroit homer. The most memorable sporting event I've attended was game 4 of the 1997 Stanley Cup Finals. I had already been very lucky scoring playoff tickets that year, seeing game 1 of round one vs. St. Louis, the triple-OT game in Detroit vs. Anaheim, and watching the Wings paste Colorado 6-0 on home ice. But to see my life-long dream of my Detroit Red Wings finally put an end to the 42-year curse was better than any other moment in my sports life...and yes, I cried like a five-year-old girl with a skinned knee when Stevie Y. finally got to hoist the Cup...

Can True Sports Fans Switch to a New Favorite Team?

I've only ever lived in southeastern Michigan, so I'm straight Red Wings/Tigers/Pistons/Lions. Most of this was because of family and friends, but also partly because that's all you could see without cable. But when I first got into football in the early 80s, I quickly realized that if you're a fan of the Lions, you need a backup know, for the playoffs. For the longest time, that was the Niners for me. I also added the Patriots when Brady took over at QB, him being a Michigan man and all. The Niners have fallen off of my radar lately, because I do not like Colin Kaepernick. Any other allegiances have been short stints (Red Sox in 2004, Steelers in 2008). Other than that, I hate every other team equally...except the Maple Leafs. I despise them with the intensity of 1,000 suns...
