I am a very passionate person, and one thing I hate more than almost anything is losing, so if I carry on a debate forever, that's the reason why. I also really enjoy Iowa Hawkeyes football, and I was born into that as well. My dad is a Hawkeye alum, and basically my whole family is from Sioux City, IA, and we are all big Hawk fans. I had the privilege of growing up with both Michael Jordan and John Elway, but Jordan's logo was on pretty much every article of clothing I owned growing up. I am a huge Chicago Bulls fan. The other half of my family is comprised of Chicago Bears fans, and I grew up liking pretty much every team but the Bears, including our beloved Cubbies. Perhaps my liking the Cubs has made me the optimist I am today. I will always do my best to see the positive in things, and I am not a doom and gloom type of person. I will always give you a reason why the Broncos can win every game in a season, and I refuse to believe that this 4-12 season was anything more than a turning point for our boys!
