My Favorite Teams

My favorite professional teams are the Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars.

Rangers are headed to the World Series!

I’ve been a Texas Rangers fan for as long as I can remember. Growing up in Tarrant county they were the team to watch. Also, my Granddaddy liked the Rangers.

Guess I discovered the Mavericks in middles school. Guess I became a because of location. They also had several of my my favorite players for a while.

At the time, the Minnesota North Star’s decision to relocate to North Texas seemed like a strange move at the time. Like many in Texas I was introduced to hockey through the Stars.

I also follow several college teams as well. Of course, I like my alma mater, Hardin-Simmons. HSU has done pretty well since dropping down to D3 in the 1990’s.

The Big Guy is both an Aggie (Texas A&M) and Gator (University of Florida) so I’ve been assimilated. It should be interesting this year with A&M moving into the SEC.

Finally, growing up in Ft Worth, Texas I’ve always liked the TCU Horned Frogs.  Spent my preschool years tagging along with my mom. She was a graduate student.

Favorite Old TV Shows

My top three would be MacGyver, Red Green Show and Monk.

MacGyverMacGyver was a fun action show. Mac could solve any problem with a piece of gum and string. I liked how he had creative solutions to get out of messes. The way Mike, from Burn Notice, solves problems is reminiscent of MacGyver.

Red GreenRed Green was a low-budget Canadian show that aired on our local PBS affiliate. The series revolved around Red and his friends, a group of middle-aged guys, who hung out at the Possum Lodge. They came up with some of the funniest things.

Monk

I guess it was time for Monk to end but I wasn’t consulted in the decision. I’ve always liked mystery shows like Colombo and Diagnosis Murder. Monk was my favorite of this genre.
