Patrick Willis; He not only has game he has class! A natural leader Joe Montana; Easily the best of his era and arguably the best ever! Ronnie Lott; I had the pleasure of meeting and talking with Ronnie in 1985. He is as soft spoken and articulate off the field as he was hard hitting and finessed on. Jerry Rice; The irrefutable Greatest Of All Time! Roger Craig; Fit and performed perfectly in Walshs' offensive schemes Bryant Young; A gamer, a mentor, a role model and a gentleman...another class act!
Why I am a fan:
Became a fan at birth and have never strayed...
Favorite Moments:
God, there are so many, but if I had to pick only a few I would start with Super Bowls; 16; 19; 23; 24 and 29. My favorite of those 5 Super Bowls victories would have to be #24 against the Broncos, 55-10. At the time, I lived in Denver and took a ration for the entire two weeks leading up to the game; especially from my office mates. I even had this one guy sit with me and diagram defensive schemes on a white board that were going to shut down the Niner offensive...He said: "Joe Montana can't throw deep...were going to kill you guys!"...Ahhhhh, Ok....The following Monday...I came in to work wearing 49er everything!~...From headband to shoelaces...Definitely a 'Favorite Moment'

Teams Mark Hates
Dallas Cowboys
Why I Hate Them: Mostly because jerry jones is a creep, terell owens whose name is not worth capitalizing, is a prick and adam 'pos' jones he's a real tool...The audacity of calling themselves 'America's Team'...But mostly I hate the Dallas Cowboys simply because they are just one classless organization
Players I Hate: Where do I start...owens, jones, jones
Dallas Stars
Why I Hate Them: I don't really hate them but I do not like them as they were the first big rivalry for the Avs
Players I Hate: The blonde guy...can't think of his name right now
Detroit Red Wings
Why I Hate Them: As above, don't really hate them I just don't like them...rival to my Avs
Players I Hate: Eh, not one in particular
San Francisco Giants
Why I Hate Them: Again...Not hate...I just don't like them because they hired Bonds in spite of his obvious cheating habits. Peter McGowan the owner thought it would bring gate receipts to have a cheater break Aaron's HR record. In other words the a$$hole put money before integrity...I no use for people like that.
Players I Hate: Peter McGowan...the pathetic owner
Novak Djokovic
Why I Hate Them: The guy is a real tool when things don't go his way on the court.
Players I Hate: It's Tennis...so, just him
Serena Williams
Why I Hate Them: She allows her sense of entitlement get in the way of her sportsmanship...a real poor sport when she loses...She just needs to grow up.
Players I Hate: It's Tennis...so, just her
New York Knicks
Why I Hate Them: Because they employed Isiah Thomas...What a tool!
Players I Hate: Isiah Thomas
