I've been a die-hard Florida Gators fan since I stepped on campus in 1989. I graduated and got Football Season tickets (haven't lived in FL since I've have tickets...boy I have a good wife)...Been in same city when Gators won the National Championship (couldn't afford tickets at Sugar Bowl, but did see the Fiesta and Orange Bowl wins). I love all that is Florida Gators....

I've been a Dallas Cowboys fan since the early 1980s..when Landry and Dorsett roamed the sidelines. Emmit Smith, a Former Gator, made watching 'The boys' extra special.

I'm a Boston Fan: It was the last state I lived in that had a MLB team. Although I live in New Jersey...there is no way I root for a NY Team....

I tried out and made the Florida Gator Track Team as a walk-on...Got to run in some events, but school came first and I only lasted one year. I am still amazed at college athletes...going to school and having to perform at a top level isn't as easy as some would think. I remember going to practice and watching some of the team wearing their Olympic outfits...I then realized...I was out of my league.
