That, is something I have never typed on a computer before! The last time, October 1988. Let's take at look at where the Sedge was at that time.
10 weeks or so into my senior year at Ames High School, where I had known since the first day of school that I would be heading to Iowa City the following August (snail mailed the application to Iowa in late May, got the response that I was in the 1st day of school that August). Suffice to say, my senior itus started early, so eager to get out of my hometown and start the chapter of my 'adult' life.
Teams loved in October 1988.
The Dodgers, obviously, had been a fan since age 6. Had loved the 1981 series win, and here we were again. All the time, I thought. Heh.
The Dallas Cowboys. Will always remember wearing that Cowboys winter hat around my freshman year at Iowa, when the Boys had been 1-15. Took so much crap. The next year they drafted Emmitt Smith, and went on to win 3 Super Bowls in 5 years.
No, I was not yet a Washington Capitals fan - that did not come until 1992, when living with the 6 other guys in that house in Iowa City, our combined 5 SEGAs, and the very first EA Sports NHL game for SEGA. Took the Caps when my roommates wanted the other power teams of the early 90s, that is how I got to know the players, and within 5 years, obsessed. At this moment, listening to Caps Radio, as they take on the Wings from Little Caesars Arena . Ugh, and they just fell behind 3-2 - a Wings power play goal.
