I'm 25 years old and have been following sports since I became a Mets fan in the late 80's early 90's. Of course I dont remember a whole lot of those teams but I'll always remember the day Darryl Strawberry left the Mets for the Dodgers. I didnt understand why that would happen.
Now in 2009 I have quite a different perspective on sports and have found a fasination in the history of sports and where we are today. I'm an avid reader of sports books and some of my favorites include; Cobb, Eight Men Out, Moneyball and Messier.
As a resident of Lancaster Pennsylvania (about 1 1/2 hours west of Philadelphia) I only root for one Philadelphia team. That team is the Eagles. My two other teams I pull for in professional sports are the New York Mets and New York Rangers. In college I am a die hard Penn State football fan and have recently been following the Villanova Wildcats basketball team.
I finally wrote my first article on Bleacher Report and am slowly becomming addicted to it. The more sports I watch the more I want to write about them.
After the great success of my first article about the uniform numbers 1-10, I have come back with the next installment, with the best players to wear the uniform numbers 11-20. I hope you can take a look and even comment on my choices. Thanks in advance!
