Age: I am currently 22, turning 23 in august

Occupation: I work at an architecture firm here on long island. I have a drafting degree from a school on LI called Island Drafting & Technical Institute. I decided to go back to school at NYIT Old Westbury campus for a 5 year Architecture degree, hopefully get my license sometime in the future. Also with a family history in the FDNY, i have aspirations to be a Fireman as well. Architecture is such a nice backup plan haha.

Music: Favorite band is the Foo Fighters (seen them twice and will be seeing them twice more). Also enjoy listening to Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers (Hoping to see them on their next tour), The Offspring (seen them once), Bush, Soundgarden, Green Day, Sum 41, Saving Abel, Linkin Park, Pearl Jam (seen them 3 times), Seether, Staind, Sumblime, and many more

Food: Not really picky when it comes to food, just no seafood please haha

Interests: obviously love hockey, after i graduated high school i coached for two years before i went back to school. Love playing video games, mainly sports but also enjoy COD. I do triathlons every summer. This summer i will be doing the TOBAY Triathlon up in oyster bay, and i will also be doing a triathlon out in the hamptons on 9/11. Will be making up a t-shirt in memory of the 343 fireman that had passed on that day.

Misc: My dad has had season tickets in section 425 since the year before the Rangers won the cup. I've had an encounter with Eddie Olcyzk the year the Rangers won the cup that was very very cool. Basic story was he was out with a thumb injury towards the end of that season. the rangers went on to win the cup, after they come back from the lockout my dad took me to a game. we were standing behind the benches watching warmups and eddie o was stretching out. he looked up into the crowd, looked down, looked back up, bent down picked up a puck. pointed me out of the crowd, my dad pointed down at me and eddie o shook his head yes. he then proceeded to toss up a puck to my dad. dont know if it was coincidence or he actually did recognize me. but that was really cool

There's a lot here, I was bored and added a few things:

Age: 24. Grew up in rural NJ (yes it exists), went to college in Boston, and now live in MN for work.

Why/How Rangers?: Ranger fan since birth, but '94 got me hooked (I was only 7, but it had a huge impact on me). Started watching every game religiously around 1998 (perfect timing) and continued to do so even amid the “dark ages”. I vividly remember arguing with a friend in 2000 that Mike York was the next great Ranger.

Occupation: I moved to MN to work as a Financial Analyst for a huge company. Yes, the weather is that bad but nothing beats a long Saturday of pond hockey or a Summer weekend up North.

Music: Music taste is all over the board. I typically consider Incubus my favorite band (late 90s- early 00s teen; seen them live 11 times) but since have gotten into a diverse array of bands: My Morning Jacket, Talking Heads, Motley Crue, The Black Keys, Hall & Oats, Fleet Foxes, Cut Copy, Zeppelin, Phish, Wale, MGMT and even a little country.

Food:
Ribs, a good steak, Italian. REALLY miss NY pizza, don't take it for granted!

TV/Movies:
-TV = Dexter, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (it's going downhill though), Sons of Anarchy, Band of Brothers (if that counts).

-Movies = Huuuuuge fan of ridiculous 80s/90s action flicks. Arnold, Van Damme, Stallone, etc. Favorites include Road House, Demolition Man, Commando, Point Break, Tango and Cash, Timecop, The Running Man...I could go on for days. I also love those ridiculous movies on the Syfy channel like Sharktopus, Dinoshark, Boa vs. Python, Mega Piranha, etc.

Car: No car but just bought a 2011 Harley Davidson Superlow. Have not told my Mom yet, she is going to have a heart attack.



Interests/Misc:
-Diehard Giants fan, have attended at least one game a year since I was 8.

-Played club hockey in college (stay at home blue-collar dman) and am in two leagues out here. But working at a desk is really killing my abilities, trying to get back on a full workout program.

-Long walks on the beach.

Age:
26, Rangers fan since 1993, when I first watched a match
Occupation:
IT Consultant. Basically helping companies structure their support lines in the IT department or help them to restructure the IT departments because of cutbacks
Music:
A fan of rock and Indie music, with Kasabian as my nr. 1 fav. artist.
Food:
Biltong!
Interests:
Apart from hockey, I am a rugby freak. Big fan of the Natal Sharks (from South Africa) and writing articles. Also making highlight reels for websites.
Misc:
Being from Holland, I have struggled so much to actually watch the Rangers the first couple of years. Now the only thing that holds me back is the timezone. Watching a match played @ MSG, starts at 1 AM for me.
Rangers preference:
When watching the Rangers, everybody has their favourites. I like watching Zuccarello play and hope he improves to turn out to be a top class player for NYR. Also the draft of Shane McColgan put a smile on my face. Artem Anisimov is also a player I am fond of.

they dont, they are actually interrelated businesses. and i need 1 to have the other. one is online based, and one is an actual storefront. last 2 years the online has been kicking ass, but the storefront has been terribad, losing money every month. right now the storefront is producing literally the maximum it can, and the online business has regressed.

Is it actually screamo, or just metal with screaming that people refer to as "screamo" because they don't any better?

I think the people that don't listen to it refer it as screamo. My buddy always gets me on it. lol

It's screaming vocals with metal riffs and drums, I guess. haha

It's probably not screamo. Screamo is one of the misinterpreted things is music. I have the same arguments with my friends

We're all metal nerds. I'm also a hockey nerd, that's why I joined

I can see where they say it's screamo, because, well, the vocalists do scream.

Screamo, to me, is just singers just yelling and acting emo with no flow and harmony.
