Born in Massachusetts, but moved to San Diego when I was 5. Split alliance between the Red Sox and Padres and Patriots and Chargers. Favorite Boston players were Carl Yastrzemski and John Havlicek. My grandparents lived in Worcester, MA next door to Bob Cousy. Favorite Padres were Kevin Brown and Steve Finley. College boyfriend at Penn was the school radio announcer for football and basketball games so I was his statistician and researcher and got in free for all games.
