I'm a die hard Steelers and Yankees fan, and have grown into a big Michigan football fan. Having grown up in Harrisburg, PA, I was raised to be a fan of the Steelers and Yankees, even though those early years were not always the best. My Michigan loyalty started when Penn State joined the Big Ten. Having grown up in an area filled with Penn State fans, I rebelled and rooted for anyone they played. When they joined the Big Ten, I immediately became drawn to the Maize and Blue.
Now, living in Michigan, I have the ability to make it down to the Big House for several games each year, and the occasional road trip for a quality college football game. I try to make it to a least one Steelers game every season and the same for the Yankees.
My favorite athletes of all time include: Paul O'Neil, Don Mattingly, Ricky Henderson, Rod Woodson, Jerome Bettis, Hines Ward, Charles Barkley, Isiah Thomas, and I have to throw in Jack Lambert from all the stories I've read.
I'd have to rank my sporting preference as: Steelers, college football, Yankees, Michigan Wolverines, any hockey. I've played ice hockey in high school and roller hockey in college. I think I'm more a fan of the sport than any team in particular.

    When you edit please don't take all the tags out of the article! That's so unbelievably frustrating.
