I'm a high schooler, but I wasn't born into a sports family, I kind of found it myself. In fact, the first Seahawks game I ever watched was the '05-'06 NFC Championship game. From then, I've steadily became a more steady fan. My parents were confused when I started watching SportsCenter instead of cartoons, but they'll never get it. Being a sports fan is something you're born with, you just have to find it. It doesn't matter to me whether they're winning or losing, I'm always a fan.
I am a Seattle SuperSonics fan as well. But I don't have too much memories of them. See, to me, the Sonics greats weren't Lenny Wilkins, Slick Watts, or Gary Payton. I grew up watching Rashard Lewis, Luke Ridnour, and Ray Allen. I miss them, and right now I'm watching the Thunder in the Finals. It breaks my heart. But I don't think Mr. Schultz thinks twice about what he did. I do have faith that Chris Hansen Will get a new stadium built, and I hope that Virginia Beach keeps their noses out of things.
Being a sports fan has it's highs and lows, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.
