Pro sports team favorites: Buffalo Bills & Sabres , Phoenix Suns ,
St. Louis Cardinals


It's painful to be a Buffalo Bills fan. Over a decade has now passed without any Playoff appearances.

Maybe this year will be the time this team can finally make the NFL Playoffs? Defense is awesome, if we get better QB play...we will.

My visit to "The Ralph", summer 2000. Go Bills!!
The following movie clip pretty much sums up being a Bills Fan.

The Buffalo Sabres hockey team has missed the playoffs the last few seasons. They will most likely be getting a top player with the #1 or #2 NHL Draft pick.

Consistently been winning and look to go further to the World Series after a bitter defeat vs. San Francisco in the 2014 NLCS.


The Phoenix Suns
are still just off the cusp of being an NBA playoff team. Won't do it this year and will probably make many roster changes once the season is over.


College Sports Favorites:
Anything to do with the ARIZONA STATE U. SUN DEVILS

This is where I want my final resting preparations performed:


Thunderhead Fantasy Football League 1992, 1995, 2000, & 2010 Champions:
Agents Öf Förtune

16 teams comprised of owners from Tucson & Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, New Jersey, W. Virginia, Texas, Connecticut, Massachussetts, Minnesota, Florida and of course Las Vegas, compete each Pro football season for the coveted Whitney Carlin Memorial Trophy.
My team,
Agents Öf Förtune, is still the only 4 time Champions!!

My "Big Shot" Family
If you go see the NHL Arizona Coyotes play at Gila River Arena, you'll hear My Big Shot brother Paul, as he's the PA Announcer for all those games........nice gig!!!

An audio montage of him from the January 29th, 2006 Coyotes game on the Edmonton Oilers radio network !

Paul working the Coyotes/Kings game on Nov. 3rd Coyotes vs. Columbus Blue Jackets

He also has played lead & bass guitar for top bands in the Phoenix area and continues to produce his own music. Check out his latest mp3 track. No vocals, but kick ass rock :
He likes to spend his spare time watching a ball game on his Big Screen HDTV..........especially when he wants to root AGAINST his hated teams.
Paul playing a gig on May 5th, 2001 in Tempe, AZ

My Big Shot sister Laurie, can be found either singing, dancing, or directing choreography in various theatrical productions in the Phoenix area most of the time. She has won awards (too many) and is a brainiac.
My sister Laurie
Her two boys Sean & Tim are somewhat more normal and actually are real cool.  She married her husband Rob in December of 2003. He's some Big Shot Radio/TV/Theatre/Voiceman dude...and is way too funny!

Big Shot Mom retired from the largest Hospital/Health network in Phoenix when she decided not to boss anymore people around. She use to be on the Apache Junction City Council and bossed an entire city of people around until she ran out eligible terms to run again. My Big Shot Dad had a Big Band group that performed for many a Trailer Park in the Phoenix area. He smartly retired from Elementary Music teaching to get away, not from the students, but from their PARENTS. Sadly, my Dad passed away in June of 2013 from his battle with Cancer. He is now directing a band up in the great Gig in the Sky. My Mom will spend her time up north to Overgaard, AZ and hang out in a totally remodeled cabin that my Mom had Dad slave away for over a year on. She will be there for the summer, laughing about how the poor children are stuck living in deserts during that time of year.
