My name is Tyler Spence, I am 20 years old, and live in the town I have been in all my life, the beautiful Redding, California. My girlfriend Rachael is a big sports fan herself. Her family grew up in Illinois, so she is a diehard Bears, Cubs and Bulls fan. My Dad is also a writer on this website, (Blaine Spence), he is a fan of the 49ers, Lakers, and Yankees. I love sports more then anything, I play high school Football and Baseball right now, and am going to be playing College Football next season for a local college here, to stay with alot of my teammates I grew up with. I am a huge Dallas Cowboys, Los Angeles Lakers, New York Yankees, Washington Huskies and San Jose Sharks. Please before any of you goobers jump on me and call me a front runner, let me explain. Never question my fan hood, trust me, I am no fair weather fan. Growing up my Grandma and cousin were die hard Dallas Cowboys fans, and my Dad being a 49ers fan, I decided to side with Dallas, and have ever since. I have seen it all, but unfortunately the Super Bowl era I can't remember as well as I'd like, since I wasn't even in Kindergarden yet. My Grandpa, Uncle and Dad are all Lakers fans, and my Dad and cousin are Yankees fans. Washington Huskies I adopted because that is where I am going to play after I transfer, and the San Jose Sharks are the closest local hockey team to Redding.
