Born and raised in Oklahoma, I've always been a follower of college athletics. I had family members play for Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and the University of Tulsa. I also clung to the Green Bay Packers, something I inherited from my father who hailed from Wisconsin, while my mother being from Texas taught me her love for the Texas Rangers. I never really had allegiance to an NBA team until a couple years ago when the Seattle Supersonics relocated to Oklahoma City and became the Thunder, and from then on I was sold. I follow my teams very closely and think of myself as a die hard fan.
