Who would you root for if you were me?

The Struggle is Real…

I was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico and moved to LA at two years old. I moved back to Albuquerque when I was seven.

I grew up watching the Albuquerque Dukes, who at the time were the AAA farm team for the Dodgers.  I saw many Dodger stars go through the city on their way to Los Angeles and even a few who got sent down for rehab.

My first job was a sports reporter at the CBS affiliate in Albuquerque which of course now had me covering the Dukes.  I interviewed Tommy Lasorta, Darryl Stawberry, Paul Konerko and Billy Ashley to name a few.

In 2003 I moved to Houston, Texas.  It was easy to fall in love with the Astros and I now had two favorite teams. I even went to the World Series in 2005.

In January of 2015 I moved back to LA and have been going to games ever since. This year my son and nephew both caught foul balls and the Dodgers are his favorite team.

Honestly, I’m planning on rooting for both teams, but I’m sure after a few World Series pitches and a couple of innings my heart will pull for one of the teams but I don’t know who that is yet.

Who do you think that team will be?
