Name is Kip. Graduated from Tennessee Tech in Dec 04 with a degree in Computer Engineering. I work for a system integrator programming machines in factories across the country. Watch an episode of How Its Made and you get an idea of my life.

Became a hockey fan when my dad told me about a new defensemen the Preds got who was supposed to be really really good - Zidlicky. Started coming to games occasionally. The second half of the 2006/2007 season with Forsberg, Kariya, and Radulov sold me. I ended up buying a ticket to almost every game the 2nd half of the year and decided the next year it would be cheaper to just buy the season ticket.

I have had season tickets in 303 for the past two years. A demanding travel schedule (147 nights in a hotel in the past year and 57 flights flown) with work has limited me to only about half the games this season. I like non-work-travel, snowboarding, and backpacking. Recently bought a 2009 WRX which is my joy car right now...

That said, can you hook me up with all the answers? I notice you... and based on your description, yes probably YOU made it so I can't save the answers to a test in a text file anymore for when I have to take the same test in a year...

I have been authorized by my superior officers to provide the following information so as to further my spy mission.

Name: Jo
Age: By this autumn I will no longer be trustworthy.
Location: Klumbis, Ahia
Height: Not gonna say.
Weight: Whatever it is, it's way way way way way way way way too high.
How did you become a Preds fan?: I'm not, really, but I respect the Implacable Foe and their fans - and I've known BFC for something like a decade (how in the Hell did you guys get the idea that he'd make a good mod, again? ) - so I stick around. That's my cover story and I'm sticking to it.
For the record, I became a Jackets fan thanks to George Matthews - he's our radio PBP guy, and he can make watching paint dry sound like overtime in the Stanley Cup finals. Never been hooked on anything so quickly in my life.
Games, consoles, etc.: I once had a super nintendo. It had zelda.
Twitter: It will destroy the world. Mark my words.
Additional Warning: I happen to be a Furry Trannie Freak, which around here mostly means that I have opportunities to horribly embarrass BFC anytime we're in the same municipality.

I have been a chef for most of my adult life and used to be the chef for Levy at the arena. I was there from 04 until the end of last season. Opened my own upscale gourmet catering business after that and have the good fortune to be the caterer/chef for a few of our players and wives.

I am recently married and have a 12 year old daughter. We all love coming to the games and I personally have been a season ticket holder for the last 4 years. Before that I had the good fortune of getting to come to pretty much any game I wanted with free tickets from the Wildhorse where I was the chef.

I grew up North of Seattle, WA and was a Canuck fan for most of my younger years but threw then away when we got the Predators. Never was a big fan of their fans anyway.

Never played hockey but have been following the game religiously since 1978.

My tickets are in section 316 row A. I don't plan to ever give those up unless I get stupid rich and can afford Vince's.



Name: Chris
Age: 41
Location: Hermitage
Nationality: American
Height: 5'11
Weight: 30# too much
Hair color: Black with silver
Eye color: Blue
Favorite band: Rush, Chris Cornell, Alice in Chains, Queen
Favorite song: Camera Eye, Jesus Christ Pose, Love Hate Love, Love of my life
Hockey jerseys owned: Hartnell Mustard, Team Autographed White and New 3rd
How did you become a Preds fan?: Have been a fan since day one. I used to go to all the Nashville Knights games and get way to roudy.

That reminds me Chef, with the board change over I lost your fried chicken recipe. Can you PM me that? Seriously, that was the best thing on Earth.

(Yes, I am blanket statementing it with the BTS cake their Adzy. My Coca-Cola Cake is so good I nearly killed my Godfather with it and people asked me to make seconds right there in front of his face. )

I still can't remember which cake is the "metric f***ton" and which is the "imperial s***load".

Still need to work on adding desserts to my repertoire; I can't seem to get good chocolate/butterscotch/oatmeal cookies without my grandmother present. I've been largely coasting on that one brisket recipe for years...

The Metric ****ton, has been renamed the "Mike's Cake" for obvious reasons and is the kiler cake. The Imperial ******** is the white cake with Sun Drop as the liquid.

At first I was an Avs fan, but I quickly converted when we got season tickets.

Hair color: Hair? What's hair?
Eye color: Brown
Colleges attending/attended/will attend: THE Tennessee Tech University

Favorite song: Tie between "Won't Get Fooled Again" by the Who or "Over the Hills and Far Away" by Zep

Hockey jerseys owned: 6, All Preds - old home and away and the mustard, new home and away, and got the new third for Christmas.

How did you become a Preds fan?: I always said that if I was going to support a local professional team it would be the Preds, because they're truly Nashville's team, and not a transplant from another city (like Houston). The wife and I attended a game, and we were hooked. We bought FST's the year Leipold sold the team, and are now partial FST holders. We're not just Preds fans either, but hockey fans in general now.

Video games played: none
Consoles owned: none
Twitter: nada

A little more about me: I'm a tier III technical support manager for AT&T (hence the moniker). I support our field work groups with installing/maintaining what we call "special service" voice and data circuits. My hobbies include yardwork/gardening, working on my ancient BMW, driving my ancient BMW, and I'm now getting into computer animated lighting for Christmas (the DW and I love to decorate for Halloween and Christmas). No kids - just a Schnauzer and a sun conure (bird).
