Loved teams from Calif. except for two

"He was a former tuba player in Auburn's Marching Band. His musical interests were broad and eclectic, encompassing everything from Brahms to Brubeck, Count Basie, the Doobie Brothers, and Sir Elton John. His love of American popular composers in performance found satisfaction in the Music Circus. His literary interests were likewise diverse; he read everyone from Faulkner to Borges, Sax Rohmer to Flannery O'Connor, Gerard Manley Hopkins to William Stafford. His longing to experience the fine arts inspired travel to the world's greatest cities, museums, concert halls and opera houses. His love of sports included a passion for all things Notre Dame, and a love of all teams from California (except the Dodgers and USC)."
