I was born in California, but grew up in Alabama and was raised a Crimson Tide fan (ROLL TIDE!!!). I have been pulling for the New York Giants since Phil Simms was drafted out of Morehead State University in 1979, and I love the Atlanta Braves. I also root for the Boston Red Sox because my husband is a diehard fan and what better way to say I love you than to support your spouse’s team?! In turn, I converted him into an Alabama fan because any other team simply would not do. But as a fan of the Green Bay Packers, he hates my Giants. And he doesn’t like the Braves because of a heckling incident involving Chipper Jones years back. Oh well, who said love was perfect?
I was a sports writer for 11 years in Indiana, Kentucky and Alabama before moving to Canada in 2004 and getting married the following year. And while I don’t miss deadlines, I do miss walking the sidelines and writing. So I started a blog to feed the need to write again and share what’s on my mind. I’m very much unfiltered, and I like to have some fun with fictional entries from time to time. But most of my entries deal with everyday things or issues that just warrant writing about.
