Hi All,

Well let's see, I'm not very good at these, but I'll give it a go... :)

A little bit about myself I guess, raised in Riverside, went to college in St. Louis, and now in Omaha, NE for work (I know... downgrading throughout my life >.>)

Although I've technically been a Laker fan since birth (parents were Laker fans, so it's in my blood), the first Laker game that I attended live was when I was 9, January 16, 1997 against the Trailblazers. I'll never forget that day... we lost 102-98, and I remember crying up in the stands in the Great Western Forum. I vividly remember a much older fan sitting behind me comforting me, saying, "Just wait until Kobe plays, we'll win it all in a few years." Back then, I didn't know the players (all I knew was purple/gold = good, everything else = evil). But that was when I first started following Kobe and his career.

Needless to say, I've been pleased with his progress, and now I can proudly say I know substantially more about the team and basketball in general, as I continously devour Laker articles throughout the web, magazines, etc.

I've been reading up on these forums for months now.. but never really got around to signing up officially. It's a great environment of Laker fans, and for that I feel like I'm home (while it snows outside my window here...)

Bought tickets for my parents and I to go to the Dallas game on Nov 28th, let's hope I get a different result :D

Thanks for having me,
-khw

Welcome :)

"The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure.
The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences,
and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon,
for each day to have a new and different sun."
