I was born in Tennessee and grew up in East Texas. I became a Dallas Cowboys fan in 1966 and a San Antonio Spurs fan in 1983 when I moved to South Texas.

Our family Thanksgiving tradition from 1965 through 1983 was to drive to Dallas/Irving and attend the Cowboys Thanksgiving games, first at the Cotton Bowl and then at Texas Stadium.

When I was at Tyler Junior College, I played in the band. The Apache Band and Apache Belles performed at five Cowboys games - three at Texas Stadium (two pre-season and one playoff - 1973 vs. the Rams) and two Cowboys road games (at Denver in 1973 and at Washington in 1974).

So, in 1974, I was privileged to attend BOTH Cowboys-Redskins games - including the famous Clint Longley game (with several visiting family members who were Redskins fans).

I attended one Super Bowl in person - Super Bowl X in Miami (first Cowboys-Steelers game - where Lynn Swann made all the acrobatic catches and where Percy Howard made his only NFL reception - a Cowboys TD).

I have been reading SB Nation Blogs - mostly Blogging the Boys and Pounding the Rock - for at least a couple of years, but I have never logged in or commented before now.

My degrees (college and seminary) are in church music, and I have spent most of my adult life serving in a ministry position on a church staff. My main hobby is sports. I have moved more toward reading the blogs first; then, if I have time, I will read Yahoo! Sports (columnists and wire stories) and Texas newspapers' sports columnists online (San Antonio Express-News, The Dallas Morning News, and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram).

I prefer to watch sports after the fact, recording them on my DVR and speed-watching later. Typically, NFL or NBA games can be watched in sixty to ninety minutes - faster if the game is boring, longer if the game is exciting.
