Auspicious Debut

I haven't written a lot about sports yet, but I'm a fanatic. I'm a rabid sports junkie. I've of course fallen for the teams that are the "lovable losers," and the "team that almost won it." I make no secret about the fact that I'm a HUGE Chicago Cubs fan. I've got a team (or 2) in every sport. My allegiances are as follows:

MLB: Chicago Cubs, Milwaukee Brewers, Boston Red Sox, and whomever is playing the Yankees. Did I mention that NL baseball is superior to AL baseball? Designated hitter? I don't even know her!
NFL: Chicago Bears
NBA: well, I really don't like the NBA...at all. I root for the Milwaukee Bucks though.
NHL: Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks (I know, impossible!); God I miss the NHL right about now! At least we have the Wisconsin Badgers college hockey team. They are definitely 'East Coast Canadian,' EH?!
College Football: Wisconsin Badgers, Nebraska Cornhuskers (my uncle Otis went to school there and was the athletic trainer under legendary coach, Tom Osborne), my DIII fave: the UW-Whitewater Warhawks!
College Basketball: Here is where it gets muddled...I LOVE the UNC Tarheels. I'm also a big fan of the UWGB Phoenix, the Wisconsin Badgers, and whomever is playing Dook. I don't mind Marquette too much either. I give most of my love to the ACC. Best conference in the land, hands down. Gotta give props to the Big Ten (11?) though!

So, my Tarheels debuted tonight in Oakland against Santa Clara. NOT good...They were without Raymond Felton (PG). They played poorly and ended up losing 77-66, to start the season 0-1. [CBS] [UNC] [ESPN]

Came across your blog today. Great stuff. Agree with your baseball selections. Always good to find another sports junkie. Sorry about your Heels tonight. Tough less...Long live the Sports Illustrated jinx.

Noticed you were a college basketball fan. Hoping you could (create a blogroll and) add a link to my College Basketball Blog, http://collegeball.blogspot.com. I'd very much appreciate a link on your site.

And would gladly return the favor, adding a link from my site to yours.
