Who was your favorite athlete growing up?
JoJo White, Wilt, Gayle Sayers, John Riggens - KU guys of course! :)

Some of us have a specific moment as a kid that turns us into sports fans. Did you? What was yours?
3 things really :) 1. My dad took me to the Pre-season big 8 basketball tournament in KC every winter, starting when I was very young, and I would go down and get KU player autographs! :)  2. We got to go into town and watch the 1st Super bowl, with the Chiefs who lost :( , on a color television set, (we only had a B&W at the time)  3. Watching the 1st televised Daytona 500 and the famous fight in the grass!

If you had your choice to attend any sporting event, anywhere, what would it be?

The Final 4 with KU winning of course LOL  I also would love to see the Indy 500, Daytona 500 and a Dega or Bristol race. I currently hold season tickets to the KS NASCAR races and IRL.

"bout time we got to learn more about Alan "Jhawker", a man I am proud to call friend, and a fellow racing fan.  Love seeing the race pics (Hi MissA!!!).  Maybe one of these days soon we'll get to meet at a race (IRL or NASCAR)  BTW is that FanIQ up on your computer in the backgroud in your "office"?? Hmmmmm?
Great job, yet again Nellie, thank you.  Still think he'd make a great moderator.
