Hello from Canada!

Hey fellow pred fans!

Just though I should finally get an account and actually chat with you guys.

Here's a little about me..I'm a huge fan of the predators and always have been, I'm a french Canadian from eastern Canada so don't mind the mistakes I might make sometimes and I am NOT from Quebec..and that probably makes me the only real preds fan around here..sadly..lol

I've been creeping these forums for a while now..so I guess I know who all the"originals" are!

Umm..I dunno what else to say..I'm not really good with these things haha

I'm glad to be here!

Welcome! I'm glad to have you here too. My name is Raven... I used to post a lot more but I'm trying to get back on the forums.

If you don't mind me asking, what made you a Predators fan since you're not from the area?

Welcome sir! I always like Preds fans that are from Canada, it tells me that not all of them hate us!

Welcome to the boards! I visited up your way this past summer. I was one of those annoying tourists from the cruiseline. Beautiful area!

Welcome! I, too, am curious about a francophone being a Preds fan. And do let us know if you plan to come to a game. I'm sure we would be happy to help with tickets and such.

It all started when the franchise came into the market and I just loved the Sabretooth logo ..after a few years I notice how the preds was such a hard working team and started getting success with there hard work.

After that I've just been a really big fan haha

People do look at me funny sometimes though because over here its all about Bruins, Habs or the Leafs, but since I was born in Ottawa I always consider my Ottawa to be my "second team" lol

Oh and I should mention that I currently live in the same city as Chet Pickards hometown (Moncton) and I did see Bourque play when he was with the wildcats lol. So even if so far, I do see some preds.

A big hearty WELCOME to Pred Nation.

You will find we are a varied bunch with many, many opinions (some good and some bad). In other words, we are normal. (Well that depends upon your definition of normal.)

I second the suggestion that if you EVER come to Nashville to watch the Predators, please let us know. We will definitely show you some Southern Hospitality.

Again, welcome.

Well, since i'm the one with Quebecor ancestry, salut. Don't make a mess, wipe your feet on the welcome mat, and don't poke the natives.

Oh, and if your last name happens to be 'Belanger' I will laugh hysterically.

Ha ha! This is funny... neither one of you actually live in the south and yet you're the ones related to one another.

iKiwi, which player drew you to watching the Preds?

I am always in favor of new friends, especially canadians. Hopefully the next generation can warm up to the younger fan bases in America

Oops, I certainly didn't mean to hijack someone else's thread for my own welcome responses !

But thank you very much, it is a pleasure to be here. I have had many years of being the only Predator fan of all my friends . While we might not be hanging out in the flesh, chatting with people about the Preds on here and twitter seems like the next best thing!! A trip to Nashville is not a question of if, but when! And how often! (and the answer is: as soon and as often as my budget allows )

Psh, we are all family here. What other preds sites are you on? And if you do make it down, don't be a stranger. We like meeting each other.

I would offer you a beer but I owe Preds Partisan one... gotta get in line...
