Growing up I was a big St. Louis Cardinal fan with Harry Carey at the mic. On the radio you could see the game being played in your mind.
Then in 1967 I was introduced to hockey and the Blues were number 1. With the late Dan Kelly at the mic and his colorful sidekicks you could listen to the game and know exactly where all the fast pace hockey action was happening at any time.
In the late 70's I starting watching the Daytona 500 and a few other NASCAR races which were on television and became hooked. I waited from Feburary to Feburary to see the Daytona 500. Then ESPN pick up NASCAR and I had cable, then I started watching races on a regular basis and kept Sundays free.
My favorite driver of all time was the late Neil Bonnett. He drove for some great owners namely Junior Johnson but couldn't get to the championship. In my book it was a dark day when he died. I will always think of Neil when is see the number 21 on a Woods brother car.
I don't have a professional journalism background, I majored in biology in college and presently I am in education. I enjoy most sports either as a spectator or participating. My favorite hobby is photography.
I hope everyone enjoys my perspective on sports. I write it the way I see it.
