Why am I a fan?
15 years ago I moved away from Buffalo and coverage of the cities professional sports teams was taken away. A couple of years later some guy named Turner Gill was hires and I got to seeing UB mentioned more in the news, so I started to follow along with the guys over on UBfan.
I got hooked on college sports and a couple of seasons later, frustrated by the lack of UB coverage during the summer after our MAC championship, I kicked off Bull Run.
Since then I've expanded my sports pallet from "football and hockey" to everything which falls under the NCAA. Soccer, wrestling, track and field, even swimming.
Plus I am rooting for the only sports entity in Buffalo that's never going anywhere ;)
