Born near Reading, Pennsylvania, I will always be a Philly sports fan at heart. I'm a die-hard Eagles fan. I cheer for the Phillies. And I defend my favorite cheesesteak to the teeth. Grrrrr...
When I was little, my dad transformed our basement into a shrine to Penn State football. He painted the ceiling black in one corner so the big screen would glow even more with Nittany Lion luminescence. He custom-built a bar inlaid with PSU trivia, family photos of us sitting on "the Lion" and ticket stubs from important games. The pool table was white wood with navy felt. A life-size cardboard cut-out of the legendary Joe Pa lurks in the corner. On Saturday mornings we used to gather round the shiny white helmet and worship it before games. Taking turns putting it on and smacking each other on the head. That is, unless we were lucky enough to be scalping tickets and tailgating in Happy Valley.
Now I live in San Francisco where I try to stay in stride with my Philly sports, and I represent when my teams come to town. AT&T Park has a damn pretty view but it will never be the Vet.
I have a new found love of MMA and closely follow UFC. As far as my own sports interests, I'm a gymnast/cheerleader/trampolinist/yogi and I do triathlons and marathons.
Oh, and I can do backflips.

I have just published a battle cry for (LSU) Tiger Nation. It's a must read for Tiger fans and it might be my best literary effort to date, I hope everyone will enjoy regardless of team or sport affiliation.
Please let me know what you think, I hope you like it and feel free to recommend it to a couple of friends if you find me worthy!.
Thanks in advance - HB
Should tax dollars be used to support NASCAR? What would you like to see in the San Jose Sharks next season?
Have you read about the Brett Favre virus?
Hi Erin! I have two articles I would like to get your feedback on. The first is on the “New” Yankee Stadium, and the other is my reflections on the early years of the San Jose Sharks. Thanks!
