    Having grown up an LSU fan (up until I started College), I have found it hard to shake my desire to see LSU Baseball succeed (unless of course you are playing my beloved Tigers).

    That being said, good luck at the CWS - do the SEC proud!

    Thanks Chuck, I didn't know that you grew up a "REAL" tiger. You have always been real supportive of LSU, and now I know why.

    Thanks,

    Well, technically, I "grew up" in Connecticut (ages 9-college), but from 1980 - 1984 I lived in Mandeville, LA. It was during that time that my early allegances were formed (Saints and LSU). When I moved up to CT, those allegances grew stronger b/c I was surrounded by NY Giants fans and people who didn't follow college football. My older brother went to LSU and I simply didn't want to follow him to college (nothing personal, just been following him my whole life), so I decided that while I still wanted to go to a SEC school, it wouldn't be LSU.

    Well, I didn't give you the full breakdown:

    Born in Dallas
    Moved to Coral Springs, FL when I was 1
    Moved to Mandeville, LA when I was 4
    Moved to Simsbury, CT when I was 8
    Went to college at Auburn
    Graduated and moved to Houston

    and no, I wasn't a military brat.
