What brought you to HF Boards: The awesome trade proposals.
How you became a hockey fan: Good question. Not much hockey in Richmond, although I have faint memories of seeing the Robins play in the 70s. Followed slightly before college, and then met many northern hockey fans at school, and some of us made road trips every year to DC to see the Caps play (also went to Baltimore one year to see the Skipjacks -- they played Hershey when Hextall was their goalie.) Became a season ticket holder for the Richmond Renegades in the ECHL when they came around. (Btw, the IceCaps were the most BORING team to watch.)
How you became a Canes fan: Moved to Raleigh in 2001, just in time for the first Cup run. Cemented when Mitch Albom made his cheap comments about Raleigh and NC during the Finals.
Favorite thing about being a Canes fan: 2009 version: beating the Bruins ("How 'bout them apples!!") Otherwise: The Sergei Fedorov offer sheet.
