About Me
 
 
100% Complete Bio
Grew up in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Graduated from Michigan Tech in the Upper Peninsula. Both my parents encouraged me to enjoy Detroit sports: Tigers, Lions, Pistons and Red Wings.

Moved to Orlando in 1995 and still cheer on my DETROIT boys when they come to town!

I enjoy sports, my nieces and nephews, traveling to corvette shows, Peanut and Jeff Dunham, and Jimmy Buffett. I want to leave this world a better place than I found it. I love to volunteer at the local homeless shelter. I love to help older people.

I have two parrots, an Umbrella Cockatoo and an African Grey, that keep me laughing.

Life is way too short, enjoy every day. Every day find SOMETHING to make you smile.

Greatest Moment in Sports:1984 Tigers win World Series and Detroit Pistons 5-game sweep of L.A. Lakers in 2004.
Greatest Event in Sports:Choke at Doak. In 1994 FSU losing to UF 31-3 and with 12 mins left FSU came back and tied the game. FSU had a chance to win but Bobby went for the extra point rather than 2 points that could have gave them the win. Didn't want to. It was 35-35.
Greatest Athlete of All Time:To me...Barry Sanders, RB for the Detroit Lions. He was a thrill to watch.
Greatest Coach of All Time:Bo Schembechler, U of M.
Most Fanatical Moment:Gone to an Orlando Magic game playing Detroit Pistons. I was screaming in the top balcony so loud, their mascot STUFF came up to the bleachers and removed my DETROIT sweatshirt. Meanie...no sense of humor. Oh yea, PISTONS WON!
My Sports Superstitions:When watching any Detroit teams play, I have to wear the appropriate jersey!
Most Disappointing Sports Moments:Detroit Lions 2008 Season 0wen-16.

Career Lowlights:Didn't have any lowlights, just had fun and enjoyed the game.
Sports Injuries:Baseball bat hit my right temple by best friend batter on the team, ouch! Had 15 stitches. Pay attention when you're walking up to a plate when the batter is ready...LOL.
Games I Usually Attend:Used to attend Tigers, Lions, Pistons and Red Wings. Now in Orlando, Orlando Magic (just when they play Detroit so I can cheer for Pistons). Tigers games when they play Tampa just so I can cheer the Tigers, and try to see at least ten spring training games.
Greatest Sporting Event I've Attended:1984 World Series and Detroit Tigers.
Sports People I've Met:Brandon Inge (he's on my brother's postal route)
Andy Pilgrim, race car driver (used to race corvettes)
Sports Figures from my Hometown:Cecil Fielder~My all time favorite Tiger. He was a giant during an otherwise dismal period in Tiger history. My best Tiger memory is listening to the last game of the 1990 season. Cecil needed 1 home run to get to 50 (this was a relatively dead ball era, and nobody had hit 50 since 1977). He hit 2 that night in dramatic fashion to end the season at 51.

Cecil hit booming, high rising, majestic home runs. He was fun to watch and had a calm, warm, gentlemanly demeanor.

Ode to Forgetfulness
Teams Susan Hates
Florida Gators
Why I Hate Them: Arrogant boys who get away with a lot of crap. They don't have to keep good grades, they CHEAT. SPOILED ROTTEN.
Players I Hate: Not nice to hate...I just dislike watching them.
Ohio St. Buckeyes
Why I Hate Them: I'm a Michigan girl, need I say more?
Players I Hate: Not individual players, the whole team! Go Blue!
New York Yankees
Why I Hate Them: Not nice to hate, but the Yankees are conceited and self-righteous. They think they're God's gift to baseball. NOT!
Players I Hate: Whole team, can't pick just one .
Pittsburgh Penguins
Why I Hate Them: Their players play dirty and have no class. They're a bunch of cry babies on and off the ice.
Players I Hate: Evgeni Malkin, Max Talbot, Marc-Andre Fleury
Los Angeles Kings
Why I Hate Them: Fans are pathetic losers! Whine and cry ESPECIALLY when the Red Wings fans are in the house. PITA.
Players I Hate: None added yet...
Kansas City Royals
Why I Hate Them: They always mess up my trip to Detroit. We have a great season until we meet this team and they always knock us out of first. Or maybe it's because I attend the games in Detroit. Ah, that might be it, lol.
