The connection we all have to home and our hometown truly dictates the core of who we are. Although I moved away from where I was born and raised by age ten, my old neighborhood lives on in my heart and memories. Some of the happiest and most character building moments took place in that first house whose features will surely be etched in my brain forever. Luckily, I didn’t move too far away so I can always visit my family and friends.

However, when one is a professional athlete, that luxury isn’t always promised. Often times, they are traded to cities they’ve never even been to. It is then up to them to make the most of their adopted hometowns, which I am sure is tremendously challenging.

In light of hometowns and the upcoming “BIG GAME” that starts with an s, we thought it would be fun to construct a compilation of 10 beautiful properties from both Seattle and Denver.
