How I became a fan: Well back in 1996 I lost my beloved Winnipeg Jets and since I didn't really want to pick an american team I decided the next best Canadian team to cheer for would be the Senators.

Then in the summer of 1997 I met Chris Phillips and Wade Redden in a bar in Brandon Manitoba and that pretty much sealed the deal for me cause they both seemed like really cool guys.
