Growing up in North Shore Massachusetts, I was trained to love sports. It's in every true New Englander's blood. But unlike most of my peers, I was never into the Patriots. As a kid, I loved Dan Marino and the Miami Dolphins. When Marino retired and the Patriots simultaneously got good, I never changed allegiances. Although I am a die-hard Dolphins fan, I still live and breathe the city of Boston. I currently live ten miles south of the city in Braintree, Massachusetts with my fiancé and two cats.
