Today's flashback takes me to when I described my favorite sports teams.
Click HERE to learn about my favorite teams.
I've realized that I really don't have a centralized set of teams that I like. Truth be told, I like it that way. It makes me unique. Plus, it becomes a pretty good conversation piece.
"Hey, Tyrone. You from Chicago?"
"Nope, just love the White Sox."
"You from Wisconsin? You sure do love those Packers."
"Nope, I just have an affinity for teams that have the best quarterbacks ever."
"Tyrone, I know you're not from Oklahoma."
"You're not really from Seattle either, are you?"
"Nope, just loved those Sonics."
I think the main reason I love these sets of teams is because I'm not good at following the crowd. I like being an original. I love the fact that I have such a wide array of teams that I like. I do wish to take a road trip to see these teams. I want to go to Lambeau and see the Packers...except they're booked for the next 100 years or something like that. I want to go to Comiskey (U.S. Cellular Field) to see the White Sox, and that's a goal I think I can achieve. I have tons of friends in Chicago that would put me up, no problem. I have friends in Oklahoma City that could put me up and then take me to a game, no complaints. One day, I will see my favorite teams in person.
And I will cry. Tears of joy.
