Die-Hard Devils, Yankees, and 49ers fan. I couldn’t pick a definitive order, because I basically live and die with all three teams. But if you held a gun to my head, I guess it would have to go in that order. Luckily, I can focus solely on the Yankees for a large period of time, and when one sport is ‘heating up’ the other is usually just beginning, or in the case of the NHL during the NFL playoffs, settling into midseason.
My 49ers allegiance came from when I was about 6 or 7 years old, I would say, and they were the most dominant team in the NFL – I like to think that the last decade or so of getting my hopes up every season, only to have them smashed, has cemented my ‘true fan’ status. Their punishing win over the Chargers after defeating the Cowboys pushed Steve Young into superhero status in my eyes for the rest of time. Still my fondest NFL memory.
Being a Yankees fan is required in my family and I probably have been a fan of theirs the longest out of any team, I went to my first game before I can really remember, and it was always a forgone conclusion that I was a Yankees fan. Although my adult life has been full of successes, as a kid, in my baseball card collecting days, they were generally bad to awful. 1996 was a big moment, followed by the threepeat a year later, and I feel like I grew up with the ‘Jetarian Yankees’.
As for the Devils, I started playing hockey around age 10 or so, and knew every single member of the roster basically from then on out. My stepfather is a blueshirts fan and by the time 94 rolled around, I was already die-hard about the Devils. The single most crushing moment of my life as a sports fan was most definitely Game 7 of the ECF in 1994…..Matteau….still makes my stomach turn, hahaha. That series was also some of the greatest hockey Ive ever seen, and maybe the best series of my lifetime.
Anyway, thought Id update my profile, I haven’t written on here for forever. Ill get into some baseball articles for the playoffs, and possibly do some fantasy football analysis articles, since Im addicted. (just don’t tell my league-mates my tips)

Let me know if you have any questions.
Lou Gehrig has somehow been forgotten amongst the game’s immortals, even though he was possibly even more of a reason for the success of Ruth’s 1927 Yankees. Read about the quiet, forgotten leader of “Murderer’s Row,” Henry Lou Gehrig.
Thanks in advance!
