Nickname: Steph, Stephy
Age: 27
Age you act: Today? Had to fire someone so unfortunately had to act my age.
Sex: F
Where you live: Dayton area
Where you used to live: Born and raised in the Dayton area, unless you want to count my four years at OU (GO BOBCATS!!)
Distinguishing Physical Characteristic: (like if we saw you in the Rbar, how we'd know it was you) I have auburn hair. And my right pinky finger won't straighten due to having broken it in high school, but I really doubt you'll be able to see that by just looking at me.
Job: Retail manager during the day. Super Retail Manager Girl at night!!! (<--- That would seriously be the lamest superhero ever)

How you became a Jackets' fan: I was in college and one of my friends had received a flyer or something referring to "YOUR" Columbus Blue Jackets. And for some reason she thought it was funny and told me that she now owned a pro hockey team (because it said "your"). Therefore we had to start watching them. She lost interest, mine only grew.
How you found HFboards and why you keep posting here: You know I'm not sure. It was a while ago, probably a year or so before I even joined. And then another year before I posted. Apparently I'm shy

Player you'd most like to spend time with: Commodore.
Other NHL Team You are Willing to Root For: Jumped on the Caps bandwagon last season
Most Obsessive/Strangest Blue Jacket paraphernalia (souvenir) you own: None. I'm boring.
Section you usually sit in: Don't have a usual section
Rituals or superstitions you observe when watching or attending a game: I sacrifice 50 virgins to the hockey gods before every game. And I'm always am sitting in my desk chair, though really that's more to see the TV better but I suppose we can call it a ritual.

Video Game You are Hooked On: Nhl 08. I'm sure it'll be 09 but since it's not out on ps2 yet I don't have it yet
Cool Music You Claim to Listen To: Buddhist chants
Music You Actually Listen to: Pretty much everything else except for R&B and most rap. My ipod has a lot of Coldplay, Something Corporate, Jack's Mannequin, Chicago, Billy Joel, Metallica, Three Senses, Incubus, and Miles Davis on it.
Favorite Movie(s): Let's see. I'm really behind on my movies. I JUST saw Batman Begins. Loved it. Can't wait to see Dark Knight. I really like Memento. And The Jerk for comedies. And for chick flicks (cause we all have a favorite) I like Playing by Heart.
Favorite Food: Almost any Chinese food that has chicken in it and isn't sweet n sour. Also Campbell's Split pea soup (the kind that you don't have to add water to). And mashed potatoes and gravy.
Favorite TV Show: The Office. Followed by The West Wing and Seinfeld
Hockey Jerseys In Wardrobe: None.
Other thing(s) we should be warned about you: I'm pretty much an open book. Except for that whole sacrificing 50 virgins thing. That kinda comes outta nowhere every few days (or every day if it's a back-to-back).

Job:CFP
How you became a Jackets' fan:Strongly dislike OSU sports, needed sports fix, liked hockey, became day one PSL holder.
How much of a Jacket-Whacket Job are you: (Level 1 -"seriously whacked," and so forth.)Probably seriously whacked considering I've dumped $3,000/season into tickets x 8 seasons, plus $2,500 into PSLs, plus parking, plus gas, plus babysitting, plus concessions, plus jerseys, etc...Let's see, that's some $30K + for a non-playoff team...that's whacked.
How you found HFboards and why you keep posting here: Use to post on Metro before. However, this is my story on HFBoards: NHL.com had a game called Bench Boss. It's a "salary cap" fantasy league game. Winner of first half of '03-04 season got free tickets to the AllStar weekend in St. Paul. I won Bench Boss and got the free tickets. While at the game, the guy sitting next to me from Boston mentioned HFboards, so I registered. Member since Feb 2004.
Player you'd most like to spend time with:I hear the Staals throw a good party. Theo Fleury? I always thought Barry Melrose looked like a party waiting to happen. As for CBJ players, I really doubt I have enough in common that spending time would really be that fun. Maybe Chimera if I had to pull a name out or joining former CBJ players Jody Shelley and Tyler Wright on one of their fishing trips.
Other NHL Team You are Willing to Root For:Who ever's playing Detroit.
Most Obsessive/Strangest Blue Jacket paraphernalia (souvenir) you own:Probably the Nash/Zherdev autographed helmet for PSL holders who prepaid their full bill a few years ago. Also, framed opening night picture with us visible in the picture.
Section you usually sit in:205
Rituals or superstitions you observe when watching or attending a game:Peanuts. I also like that the postgame show pretty much lasts the whole 50 minute drive home.
Video Game You are Hooked On:I do play Medal of Honor on Wii a little too much
Cool Music You Claim to Listen To:Not too much...more XM radio talk/news/sports channels.
Music You Actually Listen to:My daughters push their Disney Radio agenda
Favorite Movie(s): Jerry Bruckheimer's, Wedding Crashers, Wedding Singer, Old School
Favorite Food: Fajita's (mexican)
Favorite TV Show: Mainly sports and movies, but have watched 2-1/2 men and Amazing Race.
Hockey Jerseys In Wardrobe:Nash 2004 All-Star Jersey bought at All-Star game (see above). The others are original home and away jerseys and the new home jersey.
Other thing(s) we should be warned about you: I'm the quiet type who likes to throw out that surprising zinger when least expected.

Realized I've never filled one of these out and since I plan on posting alot more this season, figured now is a good time.

Job: Engineer/CNC Programmer
How you became a Jackets' fan: Orginally started out as a Ducks fan. Believe it or not the movies were what first got me liking hockey. Switch to the Blackhawks because according to the NHL & Directv they were my "local" team. But that was during the time that they wouldn't televise home games. So figured if I had to pay for Center Ice to watch my favorite team, I might as well follow the one closest to my house. (Unfortunately the NHL & Directv still don't see the Jackets as my local team)
Favorite Jackets' Player: Right now Jared Boll. Love the energy and play style.
Favorite NON Jackets' Player: Ovechkin, Donald Brashear & John-Michael Liles, since they are both from Indiana.
Video Game Systems Owned: 360 & PS3
Favorite Game(s): Right now...pretty much just NHL 09.
Music You Listen Too: Depending on my mood, anything from Jazz to Metal that'll make your ears bleed.
Favorite Movie (s): The Karate Kid
Favorite TV Show: Chuck, The Office, Two and a half Men.
Hockey Jerseys In Wardrobe: Ovechkin new caps jersey, Rick Nash signed old style CBJ jersey and a few minor league Indianapolis Ice jerseys. Plan on getting a new style Jackets jersey this season, still not sure of player yet though.

Hobbies: I drag race my Honda Civic during the summer. It runs 12s.
How you became a Jackets' fan: I watched the first game ever on TV. My fandom ended the same day when I found out there would never be another game on "free" TV ever again.

Favorite TV Show(s): I got cable to watch the Jackets this year, most everything else is crap. Father Ted, SCTV & Home Movies on DVD suffice.
Hockey Jerseys In Wardrobe: None. I'm afraid to jinx a player and I don't want to be that guy with jersey of the guy who doesn't play in Columbus anymore...
Anything Else: Glad to be here part of something...
