I have several favorite teams in different sports, but my favorite team by far is the Green Bay Packers.
I am also a huge fan of the Chicago Cubs, but also like the Milwaukee Brewers. As for college sports, I am a Marquette fan but have attempted to distance myself from that because I cover some of the sports for the Marquette Tribune. I am also a Wisconsin Badgers football fan as well as a USC football fan. In addition to being a #mubb fan, I also like Duke basketball.
I get a lot of questions about why I'm a Cubs fan even though I'm from Wisconsin. The best answer I can give is my first sports memory came when I was five years old at Wrigley Field. It was the first baseball game I remember going to and I fell in love with the place. I was a bit of a closet Cubs fan throughout high school but am not ashamed to admit I travel to Wrigley as much as I possibly can despite their pathetic record the past two years.
My favorite highlight in my sports journalism career thus far was going to New York and Phoenix to cover Marquette last spring. Spending six days in New York and Phoenix gave me a sense of what it was like to cover a team as a professional. The travel was exhausting, but the experience I gained was invaluable.
