It is said we are rare, but I don't believe it so much anymore. I am a part of the growing group of born, raised, and remain in Arizona. I have lived in the East Valley for my entire life, aside from a two-year stint as a missionary in Southern Argentina.

I have been passionate about Arizona sports (loving the Suns, Cardinals, D'Backs, Sun Devils, while hating Wilcats) for as long as I was aware that there were sports in Arizona. Unfortunately, due to the fact that my wonderful parents have never been big sports fans, I was about 12 when that happened, so I started late.

I am not a writer by profession, as I have been teaching Spanish to Mesa High School since 2002 and Rio Salado College since 2004. It is my pleasure to be a part of SB Nation Arizona, where I write from my perspective as a fan who, like many of you, is trapped (albeit happily) in a world of responsibility, being a husband, a father of four, a man with a career, and a man of faith. My views are formulated by watching games on TV, reading the Internet, and attending games (aside from ASU Football, as I go to ALL their home games) every once in a while.

I sometimes get mad, sad, frustrated, and disappointed, but even in the worst of times, I always enjoy the ride and want to look positively at what could be. After all, why bother with sports if you find no enjoyment in it? We already have enough things in life we have to do that lack in enjoyment.
