I’m as much of a sports fan as many Americans. I enjoy watching both college and professional sports and do have my favorite teams. In professional sports, I’ve been a life-long fan of the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team. That started when I was a kid, living just across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, on the Illinois side. Some of my fondest memories as a kid was watching the great Stan Musial play baseball. Even though I’m 65-years-old and live just south of Cincinnati, I’m still a huge fan of the Redbirds, not the Cincinnati Reds.

In football, I’m a fan of the now Arizona Cardinals. I’ll date myself and surprise some by saying that I first became a fan of the NFL Cardinals when they were in Chicago, before moving to St. Louis and then on to Arizona. I was also a big fan of the St. Louis Hawks and was devastated when they moved to Atlanta.

In college sports, I’m an alum of Arizona State University, so of course I root for my school first and foremost. Then I root for other schools in my beloved state, of which there aren’t many, and then I root for the conference, the PAC 12.

Like many sports fans, I get really disappointed when my favorite team(s) lose and end all chances of winning a championship, but as an educated adult, I get over it and look forward to the next season. I don’t riot, protest nor do I harass or threaten opposing teams or officials.
