Column: A Look at My History — or Lack Thereof — with the NFL

Share this...

My taste in sports comes mostly from my dad. Whatever was on TV were the sports I grew a liking toward. The favorites in the house have and will always be the St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Blues. We’d sprinkle in some English Premier League — with a split Manchester United and Tottenham fandom in the house.

I got my love for college basketball from my mom. March was sacred in our house with brackets hung up on the walls. When I was younger, my picks were based on the color of the jerseys — eventually I grew to pick properly.
