Hello. Nice to meet you all. I'm a long-time lurker, although I've posted a fair bit at the Asylum (same name as here).
St. Louis, Missouri.
Mode of transportation:
Currently a volunteer caterer.
How and when you became a Blues fan:
Man, it was a fun night. I was five years old, and my dad decided to take me to my first game. We were playing the Avalanche, and I was just totally into the game. Never mind the fact that I occassionally forgot which number Chris Pronger wore; never mind the fact that we lost that game (and every other Blues/Avalanche game I've attended. Note to self: never go to games where we play the Avs.) I had an absolute blast. I was hooked on sports. This is the first sporting event I can remember going to, and I was a Blues fan from that moment on.
Favorite current Blues player:
Aw, do I have to choose? Well, if you insist...Roman Polak. I just love the way he plays defense; you need those guys to win a Cup.
Favorite all-time Blues player:
Again? My favorite Blues player of all time is probably...Al MacInnis. Best shot in the league by far. Not even Chara or Weber come close.
Favorite active non-Blues player:
I just don't know. I was going to say Teemu Selanne or Saku Koivu, but I also have a ton of respect for Nic Lidstrom. I'll go with Lidstrom. I know you'll kill me for this, but I can't criticize the way he plays the game.
Favorite all-time non-Blues player:
Pavel Bure, and it's not even close. One of the most exciting players in hockey
First Blues game attended:
1996 at home against the Colorado Avalanche. I know that we lost that game (they scored four against us; I believe we scored two).
Your definitive Blues moment:
Hmm...well, that game against Columbus where Oshie hit Nash again works. I intensely dislike Columbus...
Music you listen to:
I'm fond of heavy metal, rap, alternative rock, and maybe a slight touch of reggae. Nothing else really interests me.
I'm not a fan of particular bands or rappers, but I do have respect for guys like Guns N' Roses, AC-DC, Nirvana, Bob Marley, The Beastie Boys, 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G., and Mastodon.
Sherlock Holmes (both of them), Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Shutter Island, Blood Diamond, Alien, Predator, and the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Anything that's barbeque.
Favorite T.V. Show:
NCIS and Red vs. Blue (even though the latter is more of an Internet show than a T.V. show).
The thing that I really love to do is write fiction. I write pretty much every day. I also like to read, hike, watch and play sports (although hockey is pretty tough; I'm a poor skater), play video games, and basically spend time with my family.
