Then, in 1968, Ab McDonald was traded to Blues. Became Blues fan for life. Liked Jets, too (but, sadly, they are gone now). I've followed Blues their whole existence.

Mode of Transportation: 2001 Chevy S-10
Job: Inventory Coordinator for contract logistics facility; "St. Louis Game Time" Prospect Department

How and when you became a Blues fan: 1967: I was 6, and happened to catch in the Globe-Democrat that there was an NHL team about to begin playing in St. Louis (yes, I was reading the newspaper regularly at age 6; I was something of a precocious child).

I remember hearing about Red Berenson's six-goal game a couple of years after that, and started to get really interested in the game then. Listening to Dan Kelly, Gus Kyle, and Noel Picard (in between checking out the Yardbirds, Doors, Beatles, Animals and Paul Revere and the Raiders on KXOK) also helped.

A couple of years later, my family moved to Denver, and the WHL Spurs were the Blues' farm team. Got to see Bob Gassoff, John Davidson, and others make their pro debuts.

Been hooked ever since.

Favorite Current Blues Player: Petr Cajanek.
Favorite All-Time Blues Player: Red Berenson, Bob Gassoff.

Favorite Active NON Blues Player: Erik Cole.
Favorite All-Time NON Blues Player: Bernie Parent, Bobby Hull, Ken Dryden.

Your Definitive Blues Moment: Seeing Bergevin throw the puck into his own net against Turek during the playoffs. I knew then that, despite a good record and a long playoff streak, the culture of this team had to change if there was ever going to be a dynasty built here, and that the player development system had to be the catalyst for that change.

First Blues Game Attended: First time I saw the Blues play live was when I was living in Denver and the Colorado Rockies hosted the Blues in 1976. I believe Eddie Johnston was in goal for the Blues, ex-Blues' farmhand Michel Plasse was in goal for the Rockeis, and I'm pretty sure that Bob MacMillan scored at least once...

College Attended/Attending: AA from Rock Valley College, Rockford, IL, 2001. Planning to start taking classes towards a Bachelor's Degree at SIU-Edwardsville after Christmas.

Music You Listen To: Classic rock, John Denver, German and Czech composers (Smetana, Wagner, etc).
Favorite Band(s): Pink Floyd, Beatles, Rush.
Favorite Movie(s): The Godfather, Slap Shot, The Dogs Of War, The American President.
Favorite Food: German, Mexican, Chinese.
Favorite TV Show: The New Yankee Workshop, This Old House, WWE Monday Night Raw, any Channel 4 newscast with Donna Savarese...
Hobbies: Extensive (my wife would say "obsessive") study and analysis of minor pro, junior, and European statistics and news as part of my duties as GTPD; German and American history; woodworking.

How and when you became a Blues fan: I was never a hockey fan growing up. My father was a Leafs fan so I was never a Leaf fan (had to be anti-Leafs of course) All of my friends were hockey fans. In 1993 Sega released the greatest hockey videogame ever and if I was going to compete I needed a team.

They really only had one good record, and the list is more a reflection of what I've been listening to recently. But yea, Becoming X is still one of my favorite records, but after the band kicked out their female vocalist Kelly Dayton, the rest of their albums just didn't speak to me. 8 years after sacking Dayton and getting nowhere near the success they enjoyed with Dayton, they are now looking for another female vocalist.

Job: Union Laborer

How and when you became a Blues Fan: My dad got tickets from his boss to a game that we had to pick up from his house, but we got lost for an hour and couldn't find the house ( before cell phones). We got to the game about the middle of the second period and saw Wayne Gretzky score off of the faceoff over Mike Liut's shoulder with about 1 second on the clock. I'm guessing that was about 1983. Also played football in Affton when the Blues practiced there and used to walk across the parking lot to watch them practice.

Favorite all-time Blue: Brendan Shanahan

Favorite non-Blue: Joe Sakic

Definitive Blues' moment- I was at the playoff game against Detroit when Pronger came back after getting hit in the heart in Detroit and the place was absolutely rocking. Was also at the game in '93? on Halloween when Lindros got thrown out of the game for boarding Nelson Emmerson. Vitaly Prokhorov had the hat-trick and I believe so did Hull. Of course watching the Monday Night Miracle on TV.

How and when you became a Blues fan: I started playing hockey at age 6, right after the Miracle On Ice. This was at the start of the NYI dynasty, so my dad & I pulled for them...I was a big fan of Trottier (thus #19, which has always been my hockey #) and Bossy.

Definitive Blues Moments:
1. The aforementioned first live Blues game...saw about 5-6 crowd fights...Blues beat Hawks 5-1. This was probably 1984ish.
2. Blues defeat Sabres last season in OT. Took my dad to the game...we kept looking at each other, saying..."Could we possibly win this game?"
3. Watching the SJ series during the President's Trophy playoffs...at my in-laws in Michigan, shortly before getting married...trying desperately to avoid screaming obscenities at the TV. I only lost it once, when Turek gave up the 80-footer...and I think I managed to censor myself somewhat. :rant:
First Blues Game Attended: Whoops...covered above.
Favorite Non-Blues STL Hockey Memories: Saw the All-Star Game at the old barn in '88...that was sweet. Ditto the Frozen Four last year.
College Attended/Attending: Wash U, BSBA '96. Probably should try to get a Master's someday...but haven't really decided what I want to do with my life yet. And I don't relish the thought of going back to school.
