Going to break the format:

Been a hockey fan since the early 80s. Growing up in NC, this made me an oddity. Followed the Flyers and Habs for years. Even made a pilgrimage to Montreal to see the Flyers and Habs play in the old forum.

Used to go to IceCaps games at Dorton, and Monarchs games in Greensboro. Was thoroughly shocked then the announcement was made that the Whalers were moving to Raleigh. Been a Canes fan ever since. gave away my Flyers and Habs gear! Never looked back, even hate those guys now! Funny though, because I can't make the switch to the Panthers in the NFL.

Getting to watch greats like Francis, Coffee, Brind'amour in my hometown wearing my teams colors was incredible. See players like Gretzky and Messier playing on Greensboro and RBC ice, icing on the cake. It was a very fortunate time for a long time hockey fan who grew up hundreds of miles away from an NHL city.

Always sarcastic and often pessimistic. Also not afraid to call out a player or the coach when I feel they deserve it.

I don't know if I'll ever be accepted here, as I refuse to worship at the alter of Anton.

I generally trade off and wear a Pens jersey at one game and the Canes jersey at the other. This year I only made it to this month's game and the wife had just gotten me the Fleury jersey for Valentine's Day, so I went with that one.

Is that so?


Also Boone doesn't suck too bad. But the only ice time I get is on my break at work, and I'm technically not allowed to bring a stick on the ice (blah blah lawsuit blah)
