Origin of screen-name:
I picked up watching hockey again in the 90s (after a short break) when the Russian Five were at their peak; RedMenace is a reference to the anti-Communist movement spearheaded by Joseph McCarthy in the late 1940s to late 1950s. I also have red hair and my favourite colour is red...
Where ya from:
North Carolina. My entire family is from Detroit (west side), so I came into liking the Wings honestly.
Favorite Current Red Wing player(s):
Datsyuk, Helm, Hudler, Lidstrom, Eaves, Bertuzzi, Commodore (...
Favorite All-Time Red Wing player(s):
Too many to list.
Favorite non-Red Wing player(s):
Steve Ott, Sean Avery, Tim Thomas
Least-Favorite non-Red Wing player(s):
Chris Effing Pronger, Skinnedknee Crysby, Teemu Selanne (I used to like him until he started whining with the *ucks...), Matt Cooke, Chris Kunitz
Meats and starches.
Snakebite/Poor Man's Black Velvet. It's actually a combination drink made by floating Guinness on top of cider.
Other teams/sports you watch:
I'll watch or play pretty much any sport (except baseball), but I mainly stick to the Wings and hockey (which I haven't played in about 8 years now. Sigh...). I get Centre Ice every season, so I try to watch as many games/teams as possible.
I also, however futilely, cheer for the Lions.
