Personal Interests:

While I have many personal interests, one of these is watching USC football games each fall. Go to for a tribute to USC's 2005 season, for a tribute to USC's 2002 victory over Notre Dame . . . or for a tribute to USC's 2003 season.
Here are some links to the school songs, like Fanfare, Tribute to Troy (this is the one that opposing teams get tired of hearing played over and over!), Fight Song, and Conquest (played after touchdowns as the Trojan and horse race down the Coliseum!).
