    Barnett lured me in with hookers and booze. J/K

    I was born and raised in Boulder, so naturally or perhaps organically I was a Buff fan.

    This poll should be multiple choice as more than one option may apply.

    How funny would it be if an unknown relative taught him to finish that statement with "like a dog's dick head!"

    Kinda casually watched CU and other local college football games. My older brother attends CSewe and my identical twin brother was also a CSU fan (who now attends CSU) so i had to be different, I rooted for the Buffs (best decision of my life so far:smile2:) Then I attended the 2004 CU-CSU game and I was done. Buff for life. :gobuffs:

    One of my fondest memories of childhood was my dad teaching me about football during the 1990 championship run and ever since I wanted to go to CU. I graduated with both my bachelor's and masters from CU (in chemical engineering)

    Native. Dad, brother and sister went to CU. Been going to games in Folsom since I could walk. I would have gone there, too, if CU had a baseball team (I wasn't good enough for a schollie, but would have walked on).

    Native, BS Finance & Intl Business degrees 94.

    Brian Cabral was the guest speaker at my 4th grade little league banquet when he was a player. He brought the entire team t-shirts and insisted on handing out the individual awards. He greeted and spoke with everyone. I was a hard core Buff fan from that day on.

    Graduated in 91, grew up in Boulder - go Panthers!

    I knew from the time I was 10 that CU was the place I wanted to go. I remember when I was on the BHS swim team that we would have our practices on the CU campus and I'd see all these unbelievably BEAUTIFUL women and I said to myself "This is the place for me". :thumbsup:
