Ron remains a baseball guy in a football world, but if there's one constant in his life as a sports fan it's that he doesn't spend a lot of time basking in the glory of victory. Sure, the Atlanta Braves won 14 straight division titles but their endless playoff futility almost didn't make the '95 Series worth it. His father cursed him to be a Virginia basketball and football fan at a young age, and learning to love ACC hoops right when Ralph Sampson made the Cavaliers for the first and only time nationally relevant created a burden of impossible expectations Ron will always have to carry. He never cared much for the NFL until Charlotte landed the Panthers in '95, but after covering their home games for years for a North Carolina newspaper he was hooked. Ron counts the Arizona-Carolina playoff game in January as his best in-person NFL experience - right up until Jake's first interception.
I enjoyed your last article about Carolina. Hope you can read mine. Enjoy!

It is not too late to make a difference!
You can help. Please give a read and "pay this forward" Some things are bigger than sports.
There was a touching moment in the Mariners game last night, made possible by the best pitcher I've ever gotten to watch - Randy Johnson. Watching history unfold inspired to me take a look at his incredible career and count down his five best moments, in my eyes. If you get a chance, take a look at it, I'd appreciate it. Thanks a lot.
Which I see I had already added myself as a fan.
