Born in Mexico, I moved to the Houston as a four year old kid in 1982. I spent five years there and began forging relationships that would last a lifetime. Yeah, some of that was with other people, but what really stuck were my relationships with Houston pro sports. I have since moved all over the country and currently reside in a small town on the east coast of Florida, but my passion for Houston pro sports has never wavered.

That passion reached it's greatest heights in the mid nineties when the Rockets won back to back NBA championships, but came crashing down only a few years later when the Oilers left for Nashville. My faith as a fan was shaken, but eventually rebuilt when the Texans downed the Cowboys on opening day, 2002. It's been a bit of a bumpy ride, but now we're ready to break out and change the future of the NFL.

I was recently married in July of 2009 to a wonderful woman who's only flaw is that she hates sports. As such, I'm currently in the process of converting her. She doesn't know it yet, but she stands little chance.

I have a BS in Industrial Engineering from Northwestern University and an MBA from MIT (where I was fortunate enough to take current Houston Rockets GM, Darryl Morey's sports management class). So naturally, I like to get into the details and stats of sports. Unfortunately, this probably drives my wife further away from them. Damn.
