My mother lives in Athens, but at 82 she doesn't come to any games these days. Watches them, though--I think it's more in case she might see me in the crowd than actual interest, but hey, a viewer is a viewer, right?

That's cool!

My mom became a basketball fan taking me to Jazz games when I was a kid. New Orleans Jazz....

I've seen a few Preds fans in Decatur. I'm going to catch a Point Mallard Ducks game tomorrow, or soon if that doesn't happen.

Do you go to many games in Nashville?

Nice!

Mama knows enough to ask about "the Weber boy with the hard shot" and the "one you like with the funny name" (Jarnkrok)

I got my hockey love from my dad, who took me to a couple of Dixie Flyers and other minor league games and accompanied me to some of the UAH games during the year I lived in Athens.

I have season tickets in Nashville. Admittedly, though, a big reason I've kept them through this season was to get All-Star Game tickets. But I try to make it to as many games as I can. Usually just on weekends though, so 10-12 times a season. Except for playoff games - I go to ALL the playoff games unless something big comes up. Like if work has me out of state or something.

Do you play? One nice thing about living in Decatur is we have pickup hockey on Wednesday nights at Point Mallard, and then there's the adult rec league in Huntsville a short drive away.

Well I want to learn how to skate first. I haven't skated in 30 years, but I was intermural floor hockey champion at U of New Orleans, top scorer too

I'm hoping to get to a game a month for the rest of the season, but job crap gets in the way. Could have a new job coming that will make it much easier to do.

That's so sweet. My mom threw away 40 programs autographed by Pistol Pete Maravich after he died, and six months after I got married. Why? Because my older brother and sister left junk in her house for 9 and 13 years respectively. Yeah... it was a lot of money gone.

Die hard fan from Birmingham. Got season tickets (flex) this year for the first time. Its not easy because of the 3 hour drive but we make anywhere from 10-15 games a year. I have often wondered how many Preds fans there are in the Birmingham area- on my trips to Nashville I have seen other cars on the way up with Preds flags/stickers....

Oh, yeah. Pass by Elgin on the way to Florence, right? My niece went to UNA so I traveled that way a few times.

Panic, it is a shared trait of all mothers, I'm afraid, myself included. No doubt there have been some 90's treasures that would have brought a fortune today in my kids' rooms had Mom not spirited them away while they were at school.

My daughter was in Montgomery for 3 years. She watched some games on TV. She moved to Chicago this summer. She still follows Nashville.

Anyway, there's someone I work with whose car I notice in the parking lot with an Alabama license plate and Preds sticker on the car. I don't know who it is but hey that's one. I also know a guy who lives in....Prattville I believe...who is a big Preds fan.

That's funny you mention Prattville. I work with someone from there now living in Nashville. I had never heard of that town until he mentioned it.

Yeah, we laugh about it now... she ended up giving us $10k for downpayment on a house a couple of years later. I think she felt guilty about it. I blame my siblings for it

Glad to see the Alabama contingent is strong.

Dena Trammell. My nieces are Alex Murphy and Savannah Trammell. Savannah graduated from there, Alex finished at ASFA down in Birmingham.

Not to derail, but other than Whaler and I , are there any other GA Preds on here?
