(From May 2, 2017)
As most of you know, I grew up in the St. Louis area. I consider St. Louis to be my “hometown”, and as such, I root for the St. Louis professional sports teams, albeit some more vigorously than others.
Last year marked the first time since 1994 that St. Louis was without an NFL team, which meant I had to find another team to support and call “my own”. Since Champaign is firmly entrenched in Chicago Bear country, it only made sense that I throw my support to Da Bears.
