Male living in N. Florida.
Original NBA fan of the Knicks when the league started (Carl Braun, Harry the Horse Gallatan etc etc). Later a Philly fan when Chamberlain came into the league. Then, not much interested in the NBA for a long time until Bird came in the league, but then became a ardent Celt fan.
Dodger fan since the mid-40ties. Pete Reiser, Pee Wee Reese, Carl Furillo etc etc. When the Dodgers moved to LA, I was living in Southern Cal, so I could live with the move. I begin to lose interest when the O'Malleys had to sell out to Murdoch's News Media, who hired a bunch of funny well-dressed guys who knew nothing about baseball but had weird haircuts, then really lost it when the Boston Parking Lot Attendant -Frank McCourt , the BPLA is LA's name for him - bought the team. Now I just watch it to see how much more screwed up it can become.
Was an original fan of the Cleveland Browns because of Jim Brown. (How could anyone take so many hits, stay up and keep running?). Became interested in the LA Rams when George Allen took over. Went to the Redskins in the giant RamSkin trade, and have stayed there ever since. (Don't ask why cuz I don't know either).
