info:
- league: Major League Baseball
favorite: Texas Ranger
link: https://www.mlb.com/rangers
comment: I wasn't always a Ranger fan. I had family in Houston and saw my
first MLB game at the Astrodome. But in High School and more in College
my fandom went to the true Texas team. And haven't looked back. Also
got my Mom enjoying the games!

- sport: basketball
info:
- league: National Basketball Association
favorite: Dallas Mavericks
link: https://www.mavs.com/
comment: Another team I didn't always support. I didn't have a true team
for a long time, and since the San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets were
both better teams than the Mavericks throughout the 90's, I waffled
between the three. Around 2002, I finally committed to the Mavericks...
don't know why (they still weren't all that great at that time), but have
enjoyed watching them ever since.

- sport: hockey
info:
- league: National Hockey League
favorite: Dallas Stars
link: https://www.nhl.com/stars/
comment: I was a Boston Bruins fan for no reason for a long time. Texas
didn't have a real hockey team and when the North Stars moved south, I
didn't join in. I didn't even move over when they won the Stanley Cup!
I've only been a Stars fan for around 5 years (at the time of this
writing), and can't say I miss the Bruins. Even when they weren't doing
well, watching the young team find there identity and deal with some of
the _veteran_ leadership they supposedly brought in was entertaining.

- sport: soccer
info:
- league: Major League Soccer
favorite: FC Dallas
link: https://www.fcdallas.com/
comment: I held no soccer allegiance before moving to Dallas and as such
never really followed the _Hoops_. But around 2010-2011-ish, I started
following because of Brek Shea was doing some crazy awesome stuff prior
to his English and Klinsmann meltdown. Since then I've kept up with
their progress.

- league: English Premier League
favorite: Liverpool FC
link: http://www.liverpoolfc.com/
comment: Because I can unite in a group of people that maintain an extreme
dislike for Tom Hicks. I figure that commonality would allow me to
overlook any cultural differences if I were to attend a match...ever.

- sport: lacrosse
info:
- league: Major League Lacrosse
favorite: Dallas Rattlers
link: http://dallasrattlers.com/
comment: So didn't pay much attention to Lacrosse until my son started
playing. Then I was guessing we could be a Denver Outlaws fan based on
relative proximity versus other teams...and Outlaws...you know, I'm from
Texas. But Rochester moved to Dallas, so now I'm a Rattlers fan. Being
they were 3rd place prior to moving, it's even a plus that it's not a
basement team.
