Unfortunately, I chickened out and went with some Mike's Hard Strawberry Lemonade instead. I know, I know. Don't judge me...

Where ya from: Finland, Espoo
Favorite Current Red Wing player(s): Pavel Datsyuk (surprise surprise). I like Nyquist from the younger ones.
Favorite All-Time Red Wing player(s): Have to say Pavel. Im so young and didnt watch NHL so much when Fedorow, Shanahan etc were around.
Favorite non-Red Wing player(s): I like Russian players, dont know why. Ovie has always been one of my faves but other than Russians, Lennart Petrell from Oilers (mainly because he played at IFK Helsinki and is a ****ing icon)
Least-Favorite non-Red Wing player(s): Crosby
Favorite food: Pizza!
Favorite beer: Not a big friend of beer.

Name (if comfortable giving out) and/or origin of screen-name: Gabriel. My screen name? Well, you do the math.
Where ya from: Grand Rapids, MI
Favorite Current Red Wing player(s): Pav and Z
Favorite All-Time Red Wing player(s): Stevie, Nick, and Shanny
Favorite non-Red Wing player(s): Ryan Miller
Least-Favorite non-Red Wing player(s): Hard to pick one, but during the first round, Shea Weber
Favorite food: Pizza and Vernors
Favorite beer: I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis.
Other teams/sports you watch: Time zones make it tough to watch other sports, but I support the Tigers, Lions, Pistons, and Jazz.

Random fact: Spent a large portion of my youth in Utah and got into hockey and the Wings in '94, so, had it been one year later, I wouldn't have been a Wings fan, but, rather a fan of that filth in the mountains. I still hate those guys.

SCS is a nice city. One of my best friends and his wife have lived there for a couple of years now and they love it. All the fish flies can be a pain in the @$$ though.

Fish Flies don't get bad by my house but where I run, it's bad. I didn't realize the amount of them one day because I had my earbuds in and didn't her the crunching. Only noticed when they started flying in my face. For about a block and a half I had to run through them. Let's just say I ran a little bit faster

Became a wings fan in college back in 1989. Went to Southern Illinois University. Never watched much hockey before. All of the fans were Blues and Blackhawks fans and annoyed the hell out of me. Just to piss them off, I told them I was a Wings fan and it just went on from there. Now I get center ice and watch all of the Wings games I can.
