I'm a D-Backsaholic. Man that feels good to get off my chest. They say admitting you have a problem is the first step. So anyway where to start, where to start.
I grew up in rural Southern Indiana. My family was never a really big sports family. My father played D-I basketball and he was a casual viewer but my sisters and mother have zero competitiveness in them. I grew up playing every sport I could find a league for and I enjoyed baseball but basketball was my first true love. As time progressed and the game changed to the way it is today I started looking for a new sport. I discovered baseball. I love a game of strategy and numbers. Well anyway I decided to look for team exotic to all of the Cardinals fans. Well I lived in Scottsdale for about 16 months when I was really young and the DBacks were a young team. So I jumped on the wagon just before the 2001 season. (great timing) My fondest memory of the WS is jumping up and down in a quiet house at 1 in the morning trying to stay quiet and then wearing my fitted hat a size to big to school the next day. It felt amazing to show my team off.
Well I kinda lost interest through '03 and then in '04 joined my first fantasy league. Needless to say that reawakened my interests and I've been stuck on the DBacks ever since.
Now a days I'm finishing up my freshman year at Seton Hall University as an International Relations major. I spend most of my free time lurking around on here and watching movies. When I get out into the real world if there is any possible way for me to work in my field and make some good money in Phoenix I would be ecstatic. Although I'm not sure if my girlfriend (a relationship I don't see ending soon) thinks too highly of that plan. But to wrap up starting my second year with you all, love my DBacks and plan on getting rich and owning them someday. :-)
