We're taking bets that I have been lucky with my teams...

Well UConn won the national championship in men's basketball for the third time. It is pretty impressive that Jim Calhoun has been the coach for all three. I think about my grandmother and Great Uncle. They were both sports fans, although their passion was really only baseball and whatever game I was playing. They both died before they got to see the Red Sox win a World Series. Actually my grandmother was 4 months old when the Sox won in 1918. Here is how I have been blessed throughout my lifetime. These are the teams I have rooted for:

Boston Red Sox: 2004, 2007
New England Patriots: 2001, 2003, 2004
UConn Husky Women's Basketball: 1995, 2000, 2002-'04, 2009-'10
UConn Husky Men's Basketball: 1999, 2004, 2011
Los Angeles Lakers: 1980, '82, '85, '87-'88, 2000 -'02 (Then Kobe ran out Shaq and I defected.)
Boston Celtics: 2008
Hartford Whalers: Adams Division Champions 1986-'87

I hope my luck continues. I know that I could have grown up someone where else, but thankfully I grew up in New England.
