Eh, what the hell. I'm bored on my lunch break right now, anyway. :)

Age: 26
Location: Waltham, MA (just outside Boston)
Occupation: computer programmer (excuse me, junior software engineer)
Goal: to have my fiancee be my sugar momma' :D
Most hated Team: Rangers/Devils/Maple Leafs/Red Wings (yes, all of those teams are hated equally)
Soft Spot Team: Boston and Edmonton. Boston more because of where I live now and the fact that they were the only hockey games I could watch consistently over the last 8 years, and Edmonton because I liked the style they play

Most Hated Active NHL Player: Matthew Barnaby/Tie Domi
Contracted team you'd like to see: ? I'm not quite sure what is being asked here
Favorite Flyer of alltime: Rick Tocchet, followed by John LeClair
Favorite Singer: despite my handle, don't know if I really have one. For a while it was Dave Matthews and G. Love, now I've gotten more into techno/trance/electronica, and there's really no singers there. Favorite DJs, however, would be Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, and Underworld (who no longer exist, unfortunately). Meh, in thinking about this, I realize my tastes run to so many kinds of music this would be impossible to answer. :dunno:
Hottest celebrity: well, she's not a celebrity, but I honestly find my fiancee far more attractive then anyone famous. She's tall, hot, smart, oh, and she makes up for my non-athletic-ness by being an uber-athlete. :)

Yeah bring back the Whale! Old school hockey baby, and there's something about Buffalo that irritates me, i think it's since they adopted the change in jersey several years ago. I liked them when they were blue and yellow. Not too mention the Lafontaine Mogilny and Andrechuyk (sp?) days.

Yeah, they haven't been the same since they changed their colors. Even though I dislike Buffalo (mostly Hasek and Barnaby related), I would actually root for them in that division if they went back to their classic blue and gold.

After someone takes care of Peter Karmanos, that worthless lying b*st*rd of an owner. That the Canes even think about wearing the old Hartford jerseys is an insult to anyone who ever had any sympathy for the Whalers. Peter Karmanos is a disgrace.

Then, when Karmanos is no longer involved, the Whale can come back, and Brass Bonanza can be heard in all its glory again! WOO-HOO!!!

Gee, can you tell I grew up in CT, with friends that were all Whalers' fans?

[Edit: Oh, and teezax, the way you should've written that line was "Team you'd like to see contracted". Then there would've been no confusion.]

BrindA17 11-04-2003 12:39 PM

Pizzapie and Flyman....

Favorite Singer: James Hetfield :yo: ROCK ON!

I probably would have put him too if St. Anger didn't suck so f-ing bad.

For now, it's Avenged Sevenfold's M. Shadows. Kick-ass, hardcore band. The guy's got talent that rivals any rock singer, and I think their accoustics are the best I've heard since Metallica's earlier stuff. Best I've heard it described is as "a wall of guitars".

PS. They don't sound like Metallica at all really. They're "hardcore punk", but it sounds like heavy metal to me.

Yeah,Het is the man. I still have to talk my friend into giving me a pick that James gave him at the Sanitarium. Yeah,St.Anger sucked,but The Unnamed Feeling is a very good song.
