Grace C. Chang - Sports

I don't play any organized sports, but I really enjoy ocean kayaking, camping, and hiking. Visit my Santa Barbara Hiking Page. I also run for enjoyment (nothing even close to a marathon but rather, 5K or less), go to yoga class, and lift weights at the gym. If I had more opportunities, I think I would fall in love with rock climbing and river rafting. The last time I rock climbed was in 1994 in Dillon, MT. I have been river rafting only once, on the Zambesi River in Africa. We conquered class 5 rapids #4-19 below Victoria Falls.

I am a HUGE fan of the Vikings and the NFL in general. It is extremely difficult to be a fan of the team that has come so close, yet never won a Super Bowl. With Daunte Culpepper and Randy Moss on the team, I am hopeful it will happen soon. Then again, I was saying that decades ago. Cris Carter was my favorite player. I'm sad he retired.


These are my favorite sports websites:
  • ESPN
  • CNN Sports Illustrated
  • Foxsports
  • Star Tribune Sports
  • CBS

    Besides the NFL, I also enjoy watching the NBA and NCAA Hoops. For some reason, I am still dedicated to Minnesota sports and gleefully cheer for the Timberwolves (K.G. is the greatest) and the Gophers despite all of the screw-ups and punishments they have endured. I also root for an NBA team a bit closer to home, the Los Angeles Lakers. That way, I have ONE favorite team that will win a championship (or two, or three...). Believe it or not, I also follow the MLB (Go Twins!), NHL (Go Wild!), tennis, golf, and basically, any sport but car racing and boxing.
