I've been a California/Anaheim/Los Angeles Angels fan essentially since birth. I was also raised on UCLA sports. Mainly a Bruin football, baseball and basketball fan; but root for any Bruin athletic program. I picked up an NFL team around 1998 when the Rams continually beat the Buccaneers. Aside from my family's roots in South Florida, I rooted for the Bucs to spite my mother's love of Kurt Warner, but grew to love the organization more the older I got. Basketball is Lakers or bust, aside from the former UCLA players in the NBA.
