Native of Arizona. I have four daughters to keep me humble. Them and my fiance Katrina are the loves of my life. Then it is all sports. In 1976 I fell in love with sports. Phoenix Suns, Cincinnati Reds, and Dallas Cowboys were all my favorites as I watched them all make it to the championship. Also in that year I saw my first Olympics. I became fascinated with anything USA. Hockey was a big deal for me as well. We attended many Phoenix Roadrunner games. To be honest I couldn't wait for the hot dog and soda as well as a few goals from the home squad. Even rooted for the parent team the LA Kings. But the Miracle on Ice came at the right time for me. Team USA made hockey magical. Just like a great trick so much anticipation and intensity leading to a climatic puck crossing the line and the crowd going absolutely crazy.
