Currently a sales manager for a national athletic company and living outside Orlando, in Lake Mary, FL, I have been a sports fan since 1960. Originally from the midwest and a die hard Cubs fan, I could not stomach the constant losing and lack of commitment from ownership. Because I have always loved the San Diego area; (I have been a consistent summer visitor since 1982) I became attached to the Padres in '95 and adopted the Chargers then too. I even have the ticket stub from my first Padres game in 1969! That's when I was hooked on the city of San Diego. My other sports passion is the Univ. of Florida and the Fighting Gators. For those of you who have never been to an SEC campus and college football game, you simply cannot imagine the feeling that comes over you when the game is about to begin. It is truly electric! I have been to 1 Super Bowl and 3 World Series games but in my opinion, nothing compares to the excitement of SOUTHEASTERN college football. You really have to try it!! What else do I enjoy watching? Hockey, golf (yes, I have been to the Masters!) and college basketball. Other than that, I am happy to be a contributor to this site. I think it's fun to exchange opinions on sports, especially on two of our favorite teams, the Padres and the Chargers.
Decided to start doing weekly MLB Power Rankings. If you get the chance, I'd like it if you took a look. Thanks.
