I was born on November 13, 1985 in Huntington, NY. I am currently living in Shirley, NY with my parents, 6 younger brothers and younger sister. As you can see, I am the oldest of eight children. I enjoy spending time with my friends whether it be a night at the movies, bowling or shooting pool among other things. I enjoy most other major sports and I tend to stick with my New York roots in determining which team I root for. As well as being a die-hard Yankee fan, I am also a huge fan of the New York Knicks, Rangers and Giants. I am currently a junior at Long Island University (C.W. Post campus) where I am majoring in political science.

I have been a big fan of the Yankees since I was about 10 years old. The first year I started watching games on a regular basis was the World Championship year of 1996. Basically I started watching games with my dad and grew more interested as the season went on. That Yankee team is still my favorite along with the 1998 team. I'd have to say the first major thrill I had watching the Yankees was when I saw Jim Leyritz hit that game-tying home run in Game 4 of the '96 Series. I didn't attend my first Yankee game until I saw a game against the Orioles in May of 2001. I have since attended a few games, including a game in Toronto in 2004 in which Tony Clark hit three home runs in a blowout win for the Yankees. The thing I like most about the Yankees is that they have a core group of exemplary leaders who show how the game should be played on the field as well as being model citizens off the field.
