What brought you to HF Boards: Critical mass of Canes fans
How you became a hockey fan: It took 1 ECHL game to hook me permanently.
How you became a Canes fan: Long story... seeing as how I cut my teeth with the Checkers, and they were the Bruins affiliate at the time, I was a hardcore Bruins fan for a log time. With the Checkers finally becoming the Canes affiliate I finally feel like I can accept the Canes without it being "wrong" as a fan.
Favorite thing about being a Canes fan: They prove that hockey works below the Mason-Dixon line... and that, in fact, a southern hockey team can have its own unique culture. I REALLY dig that.
Favorite Cane's Player(s): Aaron Ward. Remember, I am still in transition here.
Favorite NON Cane's Player(s): All time, Ray Bourque. Today, Milan Lucic.

Other Sports Teams You Cheer For: Carolina Panthers, UNC Tar Heels, Atlanta Braves.
College Attended/Attending: Sewanee. However I work at UNC if that counts.

Favorite Game(s): NHL '09. I am embarrassed to say how many seasons
Music You Listen To: Many shades of rock.
Favorite Movie(s): The Big Lebowski. Agin, I am embarrassed to say how many copies I own
Favorite Book(s): A baby makes grownup books impossible. I read magazines instead, usually the New Yorker or the Oxford American.
Favorite Food(s): Southern cuisine, Mexican, and I am a tourist for anything I've never had before.
Favorite TV Show(s): Arrested Development, and the many many shows that remind me of it. Hockey of course.
Hockey Jerseys In Wardrobe: Ray Bourque late 90s white. Brind'Amour current red. Red Wings red. Rangers blue. Original Checkers black. Checkers circa 2000, one blue and one white. Mid-90s Western Conference All Stars.
Anything Else: I am in the process launching a blog called tarheelhockey.com, though it is not up just yet as I am still working on the design. I wrote a fairly successful Bruins blog for a while and am looking forward to the new project.

No way, really?

Newark, New Brunswick or Camden?

I might be the only Canes fan in NJ...i'm convinced.

New Brunswick is a pretty cool city. Rutgers is crazy.
You're about 30 minutes from the Prudential Center, and 50 minutes (train) from MSG

Hey everyone, new poster here. I've been looking at these boards for probably about a year now, but haven't really wanted to make an account until now. I currently live outside of Raleigh, and dont attend many games, but I try to watch them all. I have been a Canes fan all my life (I'm almost 18) and started to really follow hockey a lot more closesly at the beginning of the 05-06 season. I dont really like many other NHL teams but for other sports may favorites are the Carolina Panthers and NCSU Wolfpack. I don't really like baseball or the NBA that much, and while I enjoy soccer a lot I don't really have a favorite team other than cheering for the US.

So Zach, what's the message with your avatar? I've always wondered what it is all about...did John fail at something that I'm not aware of, or are you just not a Forslund fan?

It's an old playoff avatar from 2008. In the middle of that season, we were watching the Canes suck, a few of us posted fail images in the GDT, and the canes wound up winning somehow. After that, it became the running theme of GDTs, eventually narrowing into failboats specifically, and when we made the playoffs those avatars carried us to the conference finals. Each one had a different Canes related person (or icehog, mine was stormy), and a failboat.
