Just your average sports fan here. I am in sales for a sporting goods retailer that has been in business for over 85 years (my grandfather bought all of his gear from the same place back in the 30's/40's). My territory is pretty much the entire state of WV, and I also have a few schools/universities in OH/VA/KY.
Baseball/Football are my fav's, but I also follow basketball pretty closely. I am not a big NHL fan, and I also follow some golf....tennis....softball....etc.
I have been a huge San Diego Chargers since I watched Dan Fouts back in 1981. Not too many Charger fans in WV, so when it came time to pick a baseball team to follow of course I went with the Padres and Tony Gwynn.
I enjoy reading about all sports, but past sports really catch my interest the most. I would have loved to follow sports back in the 40's through the 60's.
I am a huge Michael Jordan fan and love to win the argument when someone says that ????? was better than Jordan....it's just not true.
Yeah, the Padres are in first place right now. But are they a contender or a pretender? Check out my Division Leader Contenders/Pretenders piece and see what you think.
Hey, man! These raider bitches are talkin' trash on the article I wrote, "Are Raider Fans As Dumb As Their Team?" You should come join the fight on the Charger Nation frontline! Need some buddys to back me up!
