Think you're the biggest Spurs fan around?  Think again!

Amado DeHoyos from Waco, TX will attend all nine games on the Spurs Rodeo Road Trip this season.  Born in San Antonio, DeHoyos moved to Waco but stayed true to the Silver and Black.  The MIT graduate and engineer has been taking time away from the workforce to travel the country.  In an interview with Lorne Chan of, DeHoyos stated I've been seeing as much of the country as I can,” he said. “I realized that with the rodeo trip coming up, I could see the Spurs and see a good swath of the nation, too.”

Chan's article also notes that the trip will cost the young Spurs fan around $4,000 in plane tickets and game tickets alone.  DeHoyos trip will cover over 10,000 miles including two tough back to backs Toronto and Indiana and Sacramento followed by Pheonix.  However, DeHoyos is excited about his venture, “It’s going to be a lot of hours on the road, but it’s a dream trip to follow the Spurs,” he said. “They’re a model for any team, business or organization and I've always been a fan."
