Yes, I'm aware that many find it pretty random when I tell them that I'm Minnesota Twins fan, but in my family it's pretty much a given at birth. With a Dad from South Dakota, he grew up following them since they were the closest city with a major league baseball team. He has since passed down his love to my mother, siblings and I, along with the Minnesota Vikings (this one never took for me since I don't really consider football a sport ;)) and the Utah Jazz (this one makes sense since they're local).
I'm glad I have a passion for sports. I've always been athletic, and was a cheerleader throughout jr.high/high school so I know what a thrill it is to be in the heat of good game and feel the exhilaration of a winning point!
