Like most Arizona Cardinals fans, they weren't my first team. Until they arrived, my team was the Baltimore Colts, because I idolized Johnny Unitas. I even copied his throwing motion. Then, they moved, and the owner's name became a filthy curse word in my home, never to be spoken or heard again. When the Cards arrived, the Colts became my AFC team (once they changed conferences), and the Cards my NFC team. I care a lot about the Cards. Too much, my family says. I'm depressed when they lose (so I've been depressed quite a few Monday mornings since 1988). I've been conducting my therapy by making snarky comments for the past few years, especially on Revenge of the Birds. So I'm happy to continue, now as a staff writer!
