How you became a Jackets' fan:
Strongly dislike OSU sports, needed sports fix, liked hockey, became day one PSL holder.
How much of a Jacket-Whacket Job are you: (Level 1 -"seriously whacked," and so forth.)
Probably seriously whacked considering I've dumped $3,000/season into tickets x 8 seasons, plus $2,500 into PSLs, plus parking, plus gas, plus babysitting, plus concessions, plus jerseys, etc...Let's see, that's some $30K + for a non-playoff team...that's whacked.
How you found HFboards and why you keep posting here:
Use to post on Metro before. However, this is my story on HFBoards: NHL.com had a game called Bench Boss. It's a "salary cap" fantasy league game. Winner of first half of '03-04 season got free tickets to the AllStar weekend in St. Paul. I won Bench Boss and got the free tickets. While at the game, the guy sitting next to me from Boston mentioned HFboards, so I registered. Member since Feb 2004.
Player you'd most like to spend time with:
I hear the Staals throw a good party. Theo Fleury? I always thought Barry Melrose looked like a party waiting to happen. As for CBJ players, I really doubt I have enough in common that spending time would really be that fun. Maybe Chimera if I had to pull a name out or joining former CBJ players Jody Shelley and Tyler Wright on one of their fishing trips.
Other NHL Team You are Willing to Root For:
Who ever's playing Detroit.
Most Obsessive/Strangest Blue Jacket paraphernalia (souvenir) you own:
Probably the Nash/Zherdev autographed helmet for PSL holders who prepaid their full bill a few years ago. Also, framed opening night picture with us visible in the picture.
Section you usually sit in:
Rituals or superstitions you observe when watching or attending a game:
Peanuts. I also like that the postgame show pretty much lasts the whole 50 minute drive home.
Video Game You are Hooked On:
I do play Medal of Honor on Wii a little too much
Cool Music You Claim to Listen To:
Not too much...more XM radio talk/news/sports channels.

My daughters push their Disney Radio agenda
Jerry Bruckheimer's, Wedding Crashers, Wedding Singer, Old School
Favorite TV Show:
Mainly sports and movies, but have watched 2-1/2 men and Amazing Race.
Hockey Jerseys In Wardrobe:
Nash 2004 All-Star Jersey bought at All-Star game (see above). The others are original home and away jerseys and the new home jersey.
Other thing(s) we should be warned about you:
I'm the quiet type who likes to throw out that surprising zinger when least expected.
