I was born in late November of 1985 in Dayton Ohio. My father was from the same area, born in 1952, he was a teen when the Browns were dominant in early 1960s, and the Reds were in the midst of a historic upswing, and Woody Hayes was entering his prime . My family always loved the Reds, as they were a staple (and still are) in the Dayton area for years. My father ended up going to Case Western Reserve in Cleveland - (where he played basketball and baseball) - in the early 70's, which is where his Browns fandom solidified (being a Reds fan the Indians had no influence). A product of my fathers influence, I naturally gravitated towards the Buckeyes, Browns and Reds. When I first noticed hockey, I was about 10 or 12. At the time in Ohio, it was was either the Red Wings or the Penguins. I was inclined for Lemieux and Jagr, and the great Pens teams of 90's. Recently, I've shown an interest in the Crew and Blue Jackets living in Columbus. The Cavs are my NBA team, but I like the players more than the team in pro ball. I'm Ohio bred so it will always be Ohio sports>>>all. If I had to rank my love of sports by my teams it would go : Buckeye Football, Browns Football, Reds Baseball, Buckeye Basketball, Cavs Basketball, Penguins Hockey.
