Just re-read this. Holy **** time flies. I feel old.

Great win last night. #longlivethenote

Howdy kids,

Long time no chat. I've been lurking here for years, used different names on various Blues forums (MileHiBluesFan was one). Time to touch base with all the peeps. Brian and I met years ago in a Blues email group. I too am a big believer at building through draft, so always enjoyed his thoughts on prospects. OK, here we go....

Name: Paul

Age: 41 (holy crap, I still feel 21....err, 29....OK 30 tops.)

Sex: as much as possible

Birthplace: Pierre, SD

Hometown: Belleville, Ill.

Mode of Transportation: 2006 Ford Escape, 1997 Volks Jetta (currently looking to trade the VW in. Want a VW Westfalia Bus )

Job: Locomotive Engineer. Yes, like Casey Jones. Hence the Screen Name.....

How and when you became a Blues fan: See dude above. Same thing pretty much. A SIUE fraternity brother was a big fan and took me to my first game in 1985. My dad was in the Air Force and had been stationed all over the south--so the only ice I had ever seen was in my tea! The Monday Night Miracle sealed the deal in a big way in 86.. Been addicted/cursed ever since.

Favorite current Blues player: Hmmm... I've always liked the 4th line "character guys." Loved the Meagher/Lowry checking line a few years back. Would have to say Kariya or Erik Johnson now that Al has moved on. I was a Pronger guy, even though he's a jerk. Not a big Tkachuk fan, especially since we lost Handzus and Nagy in the deal.

Favorite all-time Blues player: Brian Sutter, Joe Mullen, Doug Gilmour, Shanny. Sorry, tough to choose. I think I cried the day Lame-orello stole Scott Stevens. Always liked Geoff Courtnall's game. My lovely wife, bless her soul, was a huge Gary Unger fan. Some dude mentioned Jeff Brown earlier. He was nice enough to get me a autographed hat from the entire team in the late 80's for my birthday (his girlfriend worked for my girlfriend). He played like my girlfriend though--and was terrified to get hit in the face. Oh and I will forever hate Keenan for what he did to my beloved organ-I-zation.

Favorite active non-Blues player: Joe Sakic. Period. Living here in Denver I've been lucky enough to get to know him (his son played on my son's baseball team.) and my wife has dealt with Joe and his wife through various charities she has helped with. They are both pure class. He and I were talking about the Conference Finals a few years back with Turek in net. He said the Avs were watching the Blues series with Dallas and were shocked at how well Turek played. But then he said "But with Turek he was either really good or r-e-a-l-l-y bad." I said, "if I remember correctly Joe, you had a little something to do with Turek looking so incredibly pathetic that series." He just smiled.

Favorite all-time non-Blues player: Joe Sakic and Cam Neely. I had my wife talked into naming our first born Cameron, but we changed to Ian (hello Ian Cole ) at last minute. Named after Laperriere. Seriously. #2 son named Jack after Buck and Clark. Go Cards.

Definitive Blues Moment: Yzerman goal in '96 (I was sitting on a train listening via radio) and the Monday Night Miracle. I was actually on a date and had gone to pick the girl up. Sat down with her dad and started watching during 2nd period. Didn't leave until game was over. Dad and I became decent friends, girl and I never went out again.

First Blues Game Attended: 1985. Can't remember opponent. I too remember the old Checkerdome, driving over last minute in a blizzard and sitting anywhere we wanted for pennies.

Music You Listen To: Americana (whatever the hell that is--alternative country, etc.), Adult Alternative, Bluegrass, Jam Bands. Hell I'll try anything.

Favorite Band(s): Wilco (Jeff Tweedy a Belleville boy too.) Noticed we have another Wilco fan here in the group. I went to see them last night here in Denver and my wife is there tonight. Also Uncle Tupelo (precursor to Wilco), Grateful Dead, Numerous Jam Bands, REM, The Killers, Shins, Modest Mouse, Springsteen, Dylan, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine, Son Volt, and of course FLOYD.

Favorite Movie(s): Slapshot, 40 Year Old Virgin, Mystery Alaska. Field of Dreams, Bull Durham, probably more I can't think of now due to cans of Guinness next to laptop. I admit I really like "A League of Their Own". Hanks was fantastic and Gina Davis could ball a little....

Favorite Food: see above. Guinness is food, right??

Favorite TV Show: Really don't watch a lot of TV anymore. Baseball, hockey and Sportscenter. I try to watch every University of Denver (Mark Rycroft ) hockey game either live or on TV. I really like the Nightly Business Report on PBS. Simpsons (still), South Park of course. Was into 24 but that series has jumped the shark.

Favorite Teams: Blues, Cards, Broncos, Nuggets, Univ of Denver hockey. Best value out there.

Hobbies: Mtn biking, reading, hockey, hiking, camping, helping with my son's baseball team, music, video games, specifically sports sims. I have played or owned every single EA Sports hockey game franchise since it's inception in early 90's. Really looking forward to NHL 08 on Sept 12.

*whew* guess that's it! You know, from reading many of the other "bios" here, I would really get along with a bunch of you all.

Also, might have room in a Yahoo fantasy non-keeper league if anyone needs yet another distraction.

Take care all......

Job: Software Support at a Dental Company
How and when you became a Blues fan: Grew up cheering for all St. Louis sports teams (which in the early 90's was only 2). My Dad was a big fan of the Cards/Blues, so it just naturally was passed along to me. Obviously, I was a huge Brett Hull fan too. Once I'm a fan of a team, I don't waiver, so I've been with them ever since.
Favorite Blues Player: current? Vladimir Sobotka All-Time? Pierre Turgeon
Favorite NON Blues Player: active? Kris Letang Retired? Mario Lemieux
Your Definitive Blues Moment: Even though we proceeded to get swept in the first round, the game in '09 when the Blues clinched a playoff spot. The atmosphere in the 'Trade was amazing (I wasn't there, watched on TV), but more importantly it signaled this team was moving in the right direction.
First Blues Game Attended: Was either '92 or '93. My Dad took me to the Old Barn to see the Blues play Gretzky and the Kings. Hard to beat that as a first game.

Mode of Transportation: 2003 Chevy Impala (though I do take public transportation as often as possible - the drivers in this city are crazy)
Job: I work at a major movie studio, restoring/distributing our vast library of catalog films.
How and when you became a Blues fan: Went to high school in Kentucky. Best friend was a Blues fan from Missouri. After years of playing hockey video games, ESPN finally got the rights to show the games in 1992-93. My friend and I watched several games (he "introduced" me to the key players), including the amazing Leafs-Blues playoff series that year. Moved to Illinois that summer, and became a die-hard Blues fan the minute I realized that I could watch ALL of the games via a local broadcaster.
Favorite current Blues player: David Backes
Favorite all-time Blues player: Pavol Demitra (RIP )
Favorite active non-Blues player: Pernell Karl Subban
Favorite all-time non-Blues player: Sure, he played for the Hawks, and he's a bit of a schmuck in the broadcasting world, but I'd have to say Jeremy Roenick
Your Definitive Blues Moment: 1999 1st Round Game 7 against Phoenix. The game was on ESPN2, which we didn't get in my dorm, so I was actually unable to watch the game itself. I had to resort to checking the Headline News "sports ticker" every 20 minutes for a score update. 0-0 End 1st. 0-0 End 2nd. 0-0 End 3rd. Then, finally, STL 1 - PHX 0 OT. I ran down the halls, screaming "WE WON!" before quickly realizing that no one else on the floor cared at all. Seeing the highlight of Turgeon's celebration gave me chills instantly.
First Blues Game Attended: February 1994 against the Washington Capitals at the Arena. My friend suggested we stand near the glass during the warmups so we could see the players skate out onto the ice. I could not believe how HUGE Al Iafrate was.
College Attended/Attending: Kaskaskia College (A.S.), Northern Illinois Univ., Southern Illinois Univ. Carbondale (B.A. in Cinema Production).
Music You Listen To: Lots and lots.
Favorite Band(s): Oh so many.
Favorite Movie(s): Plenty of those too.
Favorite Food: Greek food, hands down.
Favorite TV Show: The Venture Bros., Community, New Girl, Bunheads (shut up - it's awesome).
Hobbies: I live 4 miles from the Pacific Ocean, so anything involving trips there.

Hi guys, I'm a longtime Canes fan who moved to the Midwest a few years ago and adopted the Blues as my second team. Lately they are far more deserving of my attention. Don't know if they will ever become my "first" team but I'm enjoying these guys a lot and will probably post here more often if that is OK with you all.

Just need to say this, fellow Blues fanatics. Don't give out any info on these threads that people can use to hack your email, etc. If you use any of this in your passwords or secret answers, change it in this thread. Hackers love threads like this. And keep your answers vague. Really good hackers can steal your identity with things like your town of birth, exact age, etc.

Just sayin', sorry if I'm the bummer of this thread.

Birthplace: Orlando, FL

Hometown: Orlando, FL

Current Location: Orlando, FL

Mode of Transportation: I have to walk mostly

Job: Unable to, social difference prevents me.

How and when you became a Blues fan: One of my fave players (who I had actually forgotten 'bout, cause he played for a team I dislike at that time) was traded to the Blues.

Favorite current Blues player: Vlady Sobotka (the afformentioned player. And 'favorite' is an understatement; those who know me online will know what I mean be that!)

Favorite all-time Blues player: Haven't followed long enough.

Favorite active non-Blues player: Sid, OEL, Mason Raymond

Favorite all-time non-Blues player: I cannot determine, haven't watched old games.

First Blues Game Attended: None.

Favorite hockey people to follow on Twitter: Panger, Shatty, Ian Cole, Kerbs, Chaser (on the Blues side)
John Carlson, JVR, Dustin Penner, Alec Martinez (we have the same last name), Dan Rusanowski

I'm WAY OUT OF MARKET, so I have to listen via KMOX's online stream. And I DO NOT CARE FOR THE MAIN NBC TEAM!

Music You Listen To: Mainly J-Pop and 1980's new wave (I cannot stand all the new garbage that's popular nowadays here in the English speaking world) And throw in a random Czech song here and there; there's a station I listen to from the CZR. Blame me wanting to connect to my more-than-just-favorite Blue's homeland!

Favorite Band(s): Buono, moumoon, Capsule, Depeche Mode, New Order, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Pet Shop Boys, Melting Holidays, Miou Miou, Tears For Fears

Favorite TV Show(s): Fresh PreCure, DokiDoki PreCure, Yes! PreCure 5 (you see a pattern forming... )

Hobbies: Playing Pokémon (fan since 2000), listening to racing via the radio networks (the tv commentary is ANNOYING for one, and I cannot watch half the events for another).

And I write fanfiction, though not for a while.

Other: I am strongly against celebrity gossip of ANY KIND, do not watch ANY award shows or so-called "reality" tv, and do NOT watch MTV (haven't since 2000).

I am Aspergian, but I am not one of those people who see it as a disease (that needs to be cured).

Favorite motorsports people are: David Ragan, Johanna Long, the Roush-Fenway Racing team and Timothy Peters (NASCAR); and Simona de Silvestro, James Hinchcliffe, Graham Rahal, and Marco Andretti (IndyCar)

I also like Kimi in F1, but I can't get up early enough to keep track.

I am also a Penguins fan... I liked them before the Blues. But the team that introduced me to the NHL was Vancouver... a random VanCity station I was listening to was a sister to their flagship station. I don't listen to the Canucks as much.

No. I don't know any Moroccan St. Louis Blues fans, nor any ice hockey fans for that matter. Ha! Ha! I think you have a VERY FUNNY intro to yourself here. You have listed THIS: "How and when you became a Blues fan" as a category, and then only listed the year when you first became a fan. Living in Arab Africa and showing no evidence of having ever resided in an ice-hockey country, makes us very curious to find out just how you got interested in our sport, and also why The St. Louis Blues.

I am hoping that you will now tell us.

I, myself worked in Jordan for 6 years, and worked in Morocco for some months and hiked and skied in the high Atlas Mountains. I also worked in Egypt, Syria, Sudan, Ethiopia and Tunisia, and traveled in Iraq and Palestine and Turkey.
