SB Nation reader for a number of years. Have used articles by some writers to teach rhetorical devices to my high school students. Originally BIG fan of Lasorda and the Dodgers in 70s, who I watched with mother intently as a child. Great memories. Also a childhood fan of hockey and of Harlem Globetrotters Lost interest over middle years (raise family, etc) then regained in last few years as spare time reared its head! I like lots of teams - I have no jerseys or caps or stickers, so I do not fit the bill as a team fan, though since I reside in the East I have been to pro-level games at those cities: Detroit, Pittsburgh, Montreal, Buffalo, Toronto, Tampa, Indiana, cheering on the games in general - which apparently can be an issue with some! My apologies for not being rabid for one team. I find it best to hear from others who hold different points of view on a game or a sport - it helps maintain integrity, keeps me from being closed-minded, and reminds me of the variety of human perspectives out there - awesome.
