|Born in Houston, lived there for my first 7 years. Dad got transferred to NY, so lived in NJ for 2.5 years, family HATED it there! So my dad quit his job and found one in San Antonio where I learned how to play basketball and I absolutely loved my time there. We left the year before David Robinson joined the team and at the time I really hated the Mavericks cause they would always beat up my SA and Houston teams. We moved to Keller and I still refused to root for the Derek Harper/Ro Blackman/Mark Aguirre Mavs due to them beating up on my other two favorite teams.
Spent a couple years in the Manitoba/Saskatchewan area of Canada. Came back home and got married and lived in NRH for a few years. I got into banking and bank management and we bought our first house in Lewisville as that was a halfway point between my wife's job and my first bank manager assignment. Lived there for about 12 years until we had our first and only son on the way (yep, 15 years of marriage before having our first child who is about to turn 8). Decided we wanted to move closer to my family in the Keller area (had 3 of my 5 siblings living around here) to get some free babysitting from nieces and nephews who were all of the right age! When my son was born we decided to be a mainly 1 income household so he could have the attention he deserves. My wife's career had taken a HUGE upswing, so I was the work sacrificial lamb. Have had odd jobs that brings in extra income throughout the last 7 or so years, but nothing that sacrifices too much time with my son.
Back to my fandom. It started turning around with Roy Tarpley. LOVED that guy! Hate his ending! Followed the team since then with my fandom growing, partly cause it was the team I could watch on a consistent basis at the time. The 3-J's won me over and made me a MFFL. I have since rooted for my other teams (recently added OKC to the teams I like due to my nephew moving up there and being a big fan, we go up and watch an OKC/Mavs game every year with him and his family, this year we're going up for the New Years Eve game) except when they play my Mavs.
