Most memorable sporting event I attended in person:
I was at the game where Ricky Williams broke Tony Dorsett's all time college rushing record. Just a phenomenal atmosphere. Not only did Ricky have a monster game he broke the record on a 60 yard touchdown run. To top it off, Texas was playing their arch rival Texas A&M (A&M was ranked #6) and Williams carried 44 times for 259 yards in an upset victory.
What teams do I follow:
In football I root for the Cowboys. Stupid childhood attachment, I used to think that the space fighter pilot on Battlestar Gallactica, Lt. Starbuck (played by the uncomparable Dirk Benedict who went on to star as Face Man on the A-Team) and Roger Staubach were one and the same. Plus I was a grumpy kid and being from D.C. I liked to root against
the hometown Redskins.
In basketball I root for the Bullets (I refuse to call them the Wizards) an absolutely backwards franchise if there is one. I actually went to games when they used to play at the Cap Center in Landover. I saw some truly horrific games. Games where Ledell Eackles was their go-to guy. Ledell Eackles ... the dude was like 6-5 300lbs playing shooting guard. Easily the fatest shooting guard I've ever seen in the NBA. Just incomprehensible.
I also root for Iverson. Since Iverson went to G-Town and I went to G-Town baskeball camp when I was 8 I figure I get a free pass to root for his teams. I also expect big things from the Cavs this year.
