Well, I'm less than two months from 21...though I don't really anticipate being a big member of the microbrew club.

I just feel old (thinking back on the past, that is), and I've had a lot of **** going on lately. Doesn't seem like I'll be turning 21 at all.

I probably am unless someone who still isn't old enough to drive is on here.

21 isn't all it's cracked up to be. You end up spending waay more money and all your friends under 21 become your new best friend.

spend more money: confirmed

also you quickly go from being broke all the time because of college to being broke all the time because you have too many hobbies once you get a job because now you can actually afford to buy everything you could never justify before

#truefacts

I'd like to get my pilot's license, join a flying club, play hockey two or three times a week, get into golf (and be good at it), play around with some high-end photography gear, Go Fish in Ontario, and carve up some country roads or road courses in a two-seat, three-pedal roadster on the weekends. But even a decent-paying job doesn't come close to covering all that, especially if I ever want to buy a house. Sacrifices must be made.

Haven't done this in four years, so let's see what's changed.

Name: Jonathan
Age: 28
Sex: Male
Where You're From: Belmont, NC
Where You Live Now: NYC
Nationality: American
Hair Color: Brown
Eye Color: Hazel
Mode of Transportation: Thrilled to have sold my car last year, so now it's my feet, my bicycle, and my Metrocard. Figured I would get a Zipcar membership too but so far I haven't needed it.
Job: Transit planner
What brought you to HF Boards: The business of hockey forum became my home for getting my hopes up that the end of the lockout was "IMMINENT" and that the season was on in 04-05, only to be devastated again and again and again. I started going to the chat long before I actually registered on the forum, then finally started posting here at the start of the 05-06 season.
How you became a hockey fan: Attended some Charlotte Checkers games as a kid. At the 1996 trade deadline, Wayne Gretzky was traded to the Blues, and my curiosity was perked by Gretzky and Hull playing together. I started watching them and then fell in love with the Detroit Red Wings in the 7 game playoff series that year where Yzerman scored in overtime to knock out St. Louis. A year later, Hartford shocked me by announcing the relocation to North Carolina. I continued to be a fan of both the Canes and Wings until the 2002 Finals when Detroit broke my heart and I kicked them to the curb.
How you became a Canes fan: There was never any question about it. The day the Hartford announcement was made, I started reading up on Andrew Cassels, Geoff Sanderson, Glen Wesley, Sean Burke, etc, and started getting excited about having NHL hockey in my state.
Favorite thing about being a Canes fan: It's getting harder to answer this question lately, but I've been to home games for a third or so of the league, and there's still nothing for me that compares to the electricity of ESA/RBC/PNC when the team is playing well and the building is rocking. Also, tailgating during the playoffs, even if it has been too long.
Favorite Cane's Player(s): Don't really have favorites on the Canes. Skinner has been my favorite to watch over the last couple of years.
Favorite NON Cane's Player(s): No clue. Some of the Western guys who have never given me a reason to hate them I suppose.
Other Sports You Like: Huge soccer fan and casual football and college basketball fan.
Other Sports Teams You Cheer For: Arsenal, NC State, New York Red Bulls, Carolina Panthers
College Attended/Attending: NC State 2007, Rutgers 2012
Video Game Systems Owned: Xbox 360 (Dale Cooper 91 on Xbox Live)
Favorite Game(s): NHL and FIFA mainly
Music You Listen To: Arcade Fire, old Weezer, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Titus Andronicus, The Gaslight Anthem, Bruce Springsteen, Radiohead, Okkervil River
Favorite Movie(s): Too many, but some of my favorite directors and screenwriters are Terry Gilliam, Charlie Kaufman, Wes Anderson, and the Coen Brothers
Favorite Book(s): Hunter S. Thompson and Kurt Vonnegut are by far my favorite authors
Favorite Food(s): Everything... so many amazing things to eat here in NYC. It's a non-stop adventure.
Favorite TV Show(s): Twin Peaks, Breaking Bad, The Wire, Seinfeld, South Park
Hockey Jerseys In Wardrobe: CCM Canes Red, RBK Canes Red Samsonov, RBK Canes Black Corvo, RBK Canes White, RBK Canes New Storm Red

Well let's see, I've been "unknown" for too long:

Nationality: 'Merican
Hair Color: More salt than pepper
Eye Color: Blue when sober
Mode of Transportation: 2002 Suburban (please everybody conserve your gas so I can ruin the environment
Job: Bus. Dev./Consultant
What brought you to HF Boards: Googled "message board" during 2nd Cup run and viola
How you became a hockey fan: Father played as a youth. We had a pond that would freeze over once a year and we'd have huge community games.
How you became a Canes fan:In 2000 a friend invited me to a game and the rest is history. Went to every home game in both Cup runs. Took my 10 and 8 year old boys during the '05-'06 Cup winning year to game 7. Never forget!
Favorite thing about being a Canes fan: Redneck hockey is not for the faint of heart
Favorite Cane's Player(s): historically - Ronnie, Colsey, Nic Wallin. Now - both Staals, Gerbe, Drayson Bowman, Sasha, Brett Bellemore
Favorite NON Cane's Player(s): Brandon Sutter, Anton Babchuk, Jussi Jokinen (see a pattern here?)
Other Sports You Like: Baseball, and, of course Football, golf, skiing

Anything Else: I love this team and its players in a weird way a bit more than I love hockey. I'll casually watch other teams play, but my hockey love surrounds the Canes. I rarely rag on the players as I admire all they do, but I did go through my "Chad LaRose is all heart and no skill" stage. It is interesting that this team always has to have a smurf in that role.
