Great idea to resurrect this.

(Real) Name: John
Age: 40
Age you act: 25
Sex: M
Birthplace: Columbus, OH
Where you live: Galloway, OH
Distinguishing Physical Characteristic: the bad haircut
Nationality: American

Job: IT Director
College Attended/Attending: Ohio State, '95
Something about you no one would guess: I was in the OSU Marching Band for 5 years, played Solo Trumpet and E-Flat Soprano Cornet

How you became a Jackets' fan: First started getting into hockey watching the 92 Olympics at the "All-in-One" between classes at OSU. Went to a few Chill and OSU games, watched lots of hockey on ESPN. Became a huge Patrick Roy fan and by extension, an Avs fan. When Columbus was awarded a team, I was stoked, but didn't really become a true Columbus fan until probably the 03-04 season. The new logos, Nash...it finally seemed like an NHL team. We bought PSLs in 2008 and haven't looked back.

Most Interesting/Unusual Person/Entity You Follow on Twitter: hard to name one. @WonkaTweets @notbryzgoalie30 and @RockmanHalo are good for a laugh almost every day (for the latter, any in-game Indians game tweets are hilarious). Really like the even handed analysis / fandom of @JeffLittle_10MM, @DarkBlueJacket @RickGethin @AlisonL @CBJreddit and @frickindannie. So many more, but these are the folks that stick out on a daily basis.

Anything Else: I like turtles

I was at that Wings game. Epic. I got hooked on hockey because of a 1994 Chill game vs. Hampton Roads that went similarly. Also, love The Walking Dead, forgot to mention it.

Do you remember MVP skating during one of the intermissions? After all these years and hundreds of games that is still the best intermission entertainment I have ever seen at Nationwide Arena.

Distinguishing Physical Characteristic: I wear glasses
Nationality: French Canadian, German
Mode of Transportation: Toyota Prius
Job: Java application server administrator
College Attended/Attending: University of Dayton, Kent State, Stark State, Franklin University. (someday I'll graduate)

How you became a Jackets' fan: Grew up a Wings fan during the Dead Wings era listening to games on WJR. Became frustrated with the many donkey-headcoverings that emerged when the team started winning cups. Quit following hockey, moved to California, designed a few video games, moved back, and Ohio had its own team.
Favorite Jackets Player: Vinny, his goal celebrations work the best in videos.
Favorite NON Jackets Player: Pekka Rinne (Stockholm Syndrome I guess)
Favorite piece of Blue Jacket paraphernalia (souvenir): I have a lot of random things. A stack of "Cannon Debuts Tonight" flyers, a couple dozen "March On" flags from Game 4. My bathroom reading material is pretty much all old programs, in case you want to read about Freddy Norrena while you take care of business.
Hockey Jerseys In Wardrobe: Parents used to go to Korea on business and worked down the street from a CCM factory. Have one from just about every team plus a bunch of international jerseys. Sadly they only make bad knockoffs now.

Favorite Movie(s): I watch a lot of movies, but rarely more than once, so it's hard to have "favorites" though I did enjoy Goon recently.
Favorite TV Show: It seems like every show I enjoy gets cancelled in the first season, so don't watch much TV.
Favorite Food: Though I usually enjoy cooking, I just don't have time anymore, so my favorite is whatever someone else cooks for me.
Most Interesting/Unusual Person/Entity You Follow on Twitter: Both British Chap-Hop Artist Professor Elemental @prof_elemental and Gold Medalist Bobsledder Steven Holcomb @stevenHolcomb follow my Blue Jackets tweets, so I follow them back. I don't follow all the spambots that follow me, but I've interacted with both on Twitter and both are cool people.

Anything Else: I make some videos: http://www.youtube.com/skraut

Ok, I'll do one. Finally.


(Real) Name: Doug
Age: 42
Age you act: Depends on my mood.
Sex: M
Birthplace: Newport, RI
Where you live: Columbus, OH
Distinguishing Physical Characteristic: It can be used to identify me when dead, but otherwise useless. That and Jackass.
Nationality: Our ancestors were kicked out of many countries, on my fathers side, before we finally ended up in America. Mothers side is Lithuanian
Mode of Transportation: Equinox, probably the last GM I will own
Job: IT. Really tired of this industry.
College Attended/Attending: Franklin university, Columbus State. Didn't get a degree.
How you became a Jackets' fan: Columbus got a team, that was enough.
Favorite Jackets Player: Atkinson. Although I don't really get attached to players.
Favorite NON Jackets Player: Gaborik
Favorite piece of Blue Jacket paraphernalia (souvenir): Don't have many, so an autographed Brass puck would have to be up there. Hockey in general, have an autographed Orr picture.
Hockey Jerseys In Wardrobe: Nothing original, just original home.

Video Game Systems Owned: Wii, PS2, 3 - Obviously the computer but that's not a console.
Favorite Game(s): Not sure I have one anymore. Probably FF games.
Music/Bands You Like: Can't really list all of them. I'll listen to Pop, Metal, Country, Jazz, Gospel, Techno. What I despise is Gangsta Rap and what I call "Twang Country". Yes, I'm talking to you Conway Twitty. 60's and on.
Favorite Movie(s): Arlington Road
Favorite TV Show: Changes constantly. Right now, I'm streaming Voyager. Before that I watched the Dead Zone. I have a weakness for teen melodrama. High comedy for me.
Favorite Food: Indian
Most Interesting/Unusual Person/Entity You Follow on Twitter: The most interesting person I have found on Twitter thus far would have to be @Life_SizeBarbie. When I saw the handle on a RT, I just had to know what she does day-to-day... And I have not been disappointed. She is now training for half marathon. :p

Anything Else: I suck... But not as much as Dwayne. However, I will share on thing fairly personal. In the last 18 months I have lost 95 pounds. Obesity is a serious problem and doctors are behind the curve. It's amazing how easy it is to get healthy when; 1. You decide to make changes and 2. You do the opposite of conventional wisdom.

(Real) Name: Jo
Age: Born on All Saints Day in the first year Ronald Reagan was elected President.
Age you act: Early to mid twentysomething. I keep being told I should act my age, but that's no fun.
Sex: F, although the ID still claims otherwise (see warnings below)
Birthplace: Columbus, OH (on the tOSU campus)
Where you live: Upper Arlington, OH
Distinguishing Physical Characteristic: See warnings below. One of my friends here is consistently (jokingly) trying to get me to sign up as a women's football linebacker.
Nationality: Papa's great hobby is genealogy, so I could be really specific if I wanted. The usual generic answer is 1/5 German Jew, 1/5 other German, 1/5 English, 1/5 Something From That Madness Zone South Of The Baltic (probably Polish or Russian), 1/5 random other. Pretty much the entire family was on this side of the Atlantic before WWI, with a couple folks who've been here since the country's earliest days.
Mode of Transportation: An '04 Buick LeSabre that I love to death.
Job: Between jobs at the moment, but it's generally doing IT stuff.
College Attended/Attending: BGSU.

How you became a Jackets' fan: Listening to George Matthews on CD101 on trips back and forth from Washington Court House. At one point I told the whole story here as an act of defiance towards the contractionists. Never been hooked on anything so quickly in my life.
Favorite Jackets Player: RJ Umberger, still. Although I've also joined in on Camsanity. And I will defend Fedor Tyutin to someone else's dying breath.
Favorite NON Jackets Player: Rusty Klesla, Ryan Suter, and, inexplicably, Ty Conklin.
Favorite piece of Blue Jacket paraphernalia (souvenir): I've got a few gimmicks and such from the Inaugural Season given to my parents and since given to me (Papa worked for Corecomm back when they were sponsoring the Ice Haus) but by and large I don't collect these things.
Hockey Jerseys In Wardrobe: CBJ original.

Video Game Systems Owned: My laptop's got a bunch of emulators on it. I never did get used to all that shimmery three-dee nonsense with the Playstation; you kids just don't appreciate our great gaming history, I tell ya what...
Favorite Game(s): Does tabletop roleplaying count? I'm a big fan of GURPS and Deadlands (the setting, not the system)... In between those, however, our groups will gleefully fire up Left 4 Dead.
Music/Bands You Like: A whole hell of a lot of Canadian Indie Rock bands (thanks to a friend who provides me with regular "fixes"), plus bits and pieces of country, classical, chiptune, some progrock, some strange world music, some fusions of all of the above... I'll occasionally listen to Josh Groban, the Decemberists, Anamanaguchi, Dead Can Dance, Arcade Fire, Matisyahu, U2, and Keith Urban all back-to-back with eachother and not really feel like anything unusual is going on until I look back at the playlist and go "huh, that's odd." (And those are just the folks that I can unambiguously name and are Googleable...)
Favorite Movie(s): Rollerball (there's only one version; rumors of a "remake" are greatly exaggerated). Honorable mentions include Twelve Monkeys, The Shawshank Redemption, The Princess Bride, Munich, and The Fifth Element.
Favorite TV Show: I stopped watching TV (apart from sports) ages ago. I just got tired of every show I enjoyed either getting cancelled or jumping the shark shortly after I found them.
Favorite Food: Pretty much anything involving chicken.
Most Interesting/Unusual Person/Entity You Follow on Twitter: My twitter feed is very boring. But @DIONPHAN3UF is on there.

Anything Else: I'm one of those weirdos from the Internet that 4chan likes to laugh at. Trannie freak, part-time furry (that's where the handle comes from), teetotaler, and geek. I try to give as good as I get, but it's a challenge.
