A quick rundown:

BASEBALL: I'm a diehard Mets fan, and have been since '72. It could be worse - I'm a native of central Connecticut, and the vast majority of people here are Yankees or Red Sox fans. My father forbid us to root for the Yankees, since he was a Dodgers fan until they headed west. The Red Sox were tolerated, since they were the only team we could regularly watch on TV. I followed the Mets nearly exclusively on the radio in B.C (Before Cable) until I was 18 (God bless Lindsey, Bob and Ralph!). Claim to fame: I was at Shea in August of '73 and witnessed Willie Mays' final career home run.

HOCKEY: My first memory of hockey is the '71 finals. Probably due to my first sighting of the greatest uniform I had seen before or since, I became a Black Hawks fan at 7 years old. Then came the Hartford Whalers...living 15 miles from the Mall (and, incidentally, in the town where defenseman John Madden later lived while with the Devils), I morphed into a diehard fan of the Tail. Fast Forward: The franchise moves to Carolina (CAROLINA?!), and rips my heart out. Being a fan of the game and its history first and foremost, I returned to my original rooting interest. Outside of the Mets, the Blackhawks are my favorite franchise.

FOOTBALL: I'm the youngest of six, with three older brothers, all of whom were Cowboys fans. I grew up and out of that phase. I can't quite remember why, but I basically drifted toward the team I've rooted for since about '84...Seattle Seahawks. I know. WTF. One of my older brothers converted to the Saints, but two of them still worship the Evil Empire.

BASKETBALL: Meh.

As for the "Ref" tag - I've been a football official since 1988 on the high school, youth and semi-pro level. Linesman for 7 years, back judge for 10 and a full-time referee ("white hat") ever since, with three CT state high school championship games under my belt.

OK, since my Blackhawks and Seahawks reaped the benefits of my fandom, and since Mookie said I'd better rub some of my luck on the Mets
