Where ya from: Windsor.
How you became a Red Wings fan: Was a Habs fan from the 70s until the mid80s, when Jean Perron and Jacques Lemaire designed the most boring hockey schemes ever witnessed. At the same time, the Red Wings, while never a serious threat to beat the Oilers and Flames teams of that era, were more fun than a barrel of monkeys. Former CBC 9 sportscaster Marty Adler's goofy skits on the nightly news made the Wings seem so fun compared to the boring old Habs, who I could only see on Saturdays if I was willing to watch it in French.

Favorite All-Time Red Wing player(s): Yzerman/Fedorov/Datsyuk
Favorite non-Red Wing player(s): Hossa. S. Koivu. Selanne

I dont know how people who know anything about hockey have time to know things about other sports and still devote any mental energy to something else in their life.

Not sure how I became a Wings fan. I think it had to do with our local tv used to have Detroit channels for our American news and those were the highlights I would watch every night.

I have a black belt in Shotokan Karate and Kickboxed for 12 years. Growing up my two sports were definitely Hockey and Martial Arts. Wish I would of choose one. Now all I do is Golf (Girlfriend says ever day) it's more like 5 times a week.

Well that's me.

jaster 06-09-2011 12:15 PM

Beer is getting an embarrassing representation in this thread. Coors Light, Bud, Molson Ice.... the heck? You guys all college freshmen?

Guinness in the States, and most of Europe, used to be good, long ago. Then they watered it down to save cost and it became mediocre, a decent session beer, nothing more. Then they introduced some middling variation, Guinness Extra Stout, which is good (only in bottles). I've heard rumors that the real stuff is back, in the form of Guinness Foreign Extra Stout (only in bottles), but I haven't seen it yet.

Oh yeah....
