- Teams Followed: I still follow my hometown childhood teams, the NY Giants, Mets, Knicks, Islanders.
- I dont know that I have a signature phrase but I have been known to break into rants more than just “on occassion”
Favorite sports experiences:
- Bobby Jones 1 hitter in 2000 NLDS vs SF Giants which clinched series.
- Mets 10 run 8th inning comeback vs Braves June 30, 2000
- R A Dickey win his 20th game with a 13K performance in final Mets home game of 2012 season
- 2003 ALCS Game 7 – the Grady Little game. Aaron Boone led off the bottom of the 11th, and the first pitch he saw from Tim Wakefield forever earned Boone a place in the annals of Yankees history.
Realistically, considering the teams I root for, I have a lot more “Miserable Sports moments” in games that I have attended than I do “favorite” ones.
