Get to know your fellow posters!
I did this my first year on these boards in 2007, again in 2009, and seems appropriate again to do it this year with many new posters joining us.
We all have one thing in common, our love/passion for the New York Rangers. But what else do we have in common? Music? Food? Who knows. Just a little way for every one to get to know every one else and learn a bit more about the people you engage in conversation with every day on these boards. These are just a general few to start with, feel free to add more.
Age:22 (I know Im a young one) turn 23 in August.
Occupation:Work full time at a country club and attend school full time, attempting to get my degree in finance.
Music: Huge Jimmy Buffett fan, seen him 5 times in concert.
Food: Has to be a ultimate club from blimpie with pepperjack cheese and peppercorn Ranch. That>All.
Interests: Play a little COD here and there(well actually alot) and many many many other videogames, I love poker, also a huge jets/yanks fan. From time to time when I get the chance maybe a little golf and fishing.
(Can't believe I forgot this) Tv/Movies: HUGE fan of Sons of Anarchy, Archer has become a favorite, family guy, Two and a half men, Rounders and 21 are my fav movies.
Misc: Played in the WSOP twice in the Omaha H/L event. Getting engaged when I graduate(scary scary thought).
So every one doesnt have to copy, edit, paste, ill make it simple.
Occupation: I work in an office and it's pretty much Office Space; I'll leave it at that. Hate my job and I'm trying to head back to school sometime in 2012 and if I could land a new job that would be sweet too.
Music: I listen to so much but it all starts with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers for me. Pumped for their new album; Josh Klinghoffer will impress many people very underrated/unknown musician. I listen to everything though. In my car right now (6 CD changer!) is Duke Ellington with Charles Mingus and Max Roach, new Radiohead, Husker Du, Fort Minor, Ohio Players, new Thievery Corporation, etc.
Food: Pretty much everything but Italian/Indian/Chinese/Japanese
Interests: I love movies. Grew up watching a lot of sci fi/action. Kind of a work out nut because I'm not even close to a natural athlete but I have a Ryan Callahan work ethic when I'm at my best. Played bass in bands since HS and have written probably 200 songs that will hopefully see the light of day before I'm 40.
Misc: Been a full-time Rangers fan since 1989. After that the teams I follow are the NY Giants and also pay attention to the San Jose Sharks my West Coast NHL homies. I never played ice hockey growing up because I never learned to skate properly but when my job/school situation is worked out that is among the first things I will do. My 30h birthday was relatively quiet; just a Rangers game. I'm saving it for when I'm able to give my two weeks notice as that might put the Bruins bar tab to shame :laugh:
