Larry in Tempe
Larry in Tempe is a native of the valley and obviously has spent many, many years enjoying our local sports scene.
A graduate of Paradise Valley High School (where he earned 5 varsity letters in football and track and field) and ASU, class of '77, (where the best time of all time was had) he currently holds season tickets for the Cards and Sun Devil football.
Dawn L (the one in the middle...duh.)
Dawn is a big fan of hockey, football, baseball, and basketball who got her love of sports through her Dad. She has participated in gymnastics, baseball, softball, and soccer.
Dawn grew up in Tucson and moved to the Valley of the Sun the summer of 2000. She says: "I did not go to the U of A so donÊ¼t be hatinÊ¼." Dawn loves Phoenix because she can pretty much pick up and go to a professional or college game, of some sort, almost anytime of the year.

I'm a second generation native of Arizona. I bleed all Arizona sports teams (except UofA), but my main passions are football, then basketball. (My grandmother tells me at the age of 4 I could name every NFL football team). I played football and basketball thru Jr. High and some basketball in high school.
Outside of that, I enjoy a good cold beer (or 10), and love to go camping and/or fishing whenever possible. I also do some hunting when I get drawn.

Josh in Phoenix
A long-time fan of Jurecki and Bickley, Josh in Phoenix is an avid hometown fan. Grew up attending Suns, Cardinals, Sun Devil and Phoenix Firebirds games. A fourth-generation native of Arizona, he uses this card to solve arguments from time to time. “Are you a native? Didn’t think so…now take that late fee off.” Voted against Proposition 302 in 2000. Personally boycotted the Cardinals in 2008 due to 20 years of bad football – then watched them in Super Bowl.

Finally recovering from the end of football season depression (I was
surprised to find that my healthcare plan does not cover therapy for
post football syndrome.. what do I pay all that money for anyway?) I
thought I'd comment on a few recent local sports happenings.
In the last month I've actually attended a couple of Suns games at the
"morgue". Don't worry, the tickets were free and with the city
turning off all the street side meters at 5pm parking can also be
free. One game I took the train from Tempe to the arena and back and
that was fun.
As for the team itself my New Years resolution was to be a cup half
filled guy so I really can't say much other then wonder about the
rumor that reclusive GM Lance Blanks was seen walking around Suns
offices with 8" long fingernails, a tattered robe and Kleenix boxes on
his feet. Again, it's just a rumor.
The other big story revealed this weekend is the bounty the Saints had
out for Kurt Warner in the 2009 playoff game. So let's check the
list: a bounty out for Warner; Justin Upton gets hit 80 or 90 times in
the season; Canada wants our hockey team; Ryan Braun laughed all the
way to the NLCS; every NBA team under .500 beats on the Suns,
particularly at home.
I guess the valley has become North America's "beyatch".
Geese... I'm starting to get depressed again.
