Favorite Sports teams!!!

Time to talk about my favorite sports teams and why...these are in no particular order.

1. TCU- Well...its the school I got my undergrad and masters from. So I have to like them of course. Since 2002 when I stepped on campus, I think I have only missed 1 or 2 home games. I have confidence that we will make it into a BCS game soon, and I WILL be there!!! We have a GREAT coach and an unbelivable Defense every year. Some of footballs greats have come through TCU. Slingin Sammy Baugh, one of the first throwing QB's in the NFL. He was in the first Hall of Fame class as well. Davey O'brien, the award for best college quarterback is named after him. Enough said. Bob Lilly, member of the Ring of Fame for the Cowboys. And of course, my favorite player, LaDanian Tomlinson. One of if not the best running back in the NFL today.

2. Nebraska- This is where I was born. I was only in Nebraska for 6 months before my dad got transfered to Houston, but most of my family still lives here. My dad is an alum of Nebraska, so I grew up watching Nebraska football. This is where I originally wanted to go to school, till I finally decided on TCU. There is so much tradition in Nebraska football. 5 National Championships, and I was fortunate to be around 3 of them. My favorite number is 15 because of my favorite all time player Tommie Frazier. GO BIG RED!!!

3. Houston Sports
a) Rockets- 2 time World Champions, Hakeem the Dream, Yao Ming, Clyde Drexler....thats all.
b) Astros- Always entertaining even though they arent so hot right now. My favorite baseball player ever Jeff Bagwell, the other killer B Craig Biggio, Berkman
c) Texans- This is their me!!!
