Baseball is the only sport I care about. But I like to have people or teams I can pull for in sports I would never watch. And for those, I pick my favorites based on their names or nicknames. My favorite Nascar driver is Dick Trickle. My favorite college basketball team is the University of Connecticut, just because I love the pun in the name UConn Huskies. My favorite (retired) football player is Tiki Barber. My favorite soccer player is Mia Hamm (cuz it sounds like how an uncultured actor would describe herself).
And I want to wish a happy 56th birthday to my favorite tennis player Evonne Goolagong.
