A lot of people say they've been a fan of something "since the day they were born." But for me, that literally holds true with sports. I was born in mid-October during the Major League Baseball playoffs. The Twins and the Tigers were playing the evening I was born, and according to my parents, hours after my birth, my dad cradled me in his arms as he watched the baseball game in the hospital and explained to me what was going on and the rules of the game. I've been a baseball fan, and a sports fan, for as long as I can remember, and bonding over sports has given my dad and me an exceptionally close relationship. I believe watching that baseball game together when I was less than a day old set the tone for the rest of my life.
