Talking Welcome & introduce yourself

Just to get the ball rolling! Skip any questions you don't want to answer. I don't like to get too personal with these things, and left the "favorite team" stuff open since I hope our minor league affiliate friends will jump in too!


Where were you born? Nashua NH
Current hometown: New Port Richey FL
Ever live anywhere else?: Chicago for 7 years & many other cities in central/northern Florida
Nationality/ethnicity: French Canadian on both sides of the family
Job: Librarian (i.e., expert at shushing & giving noisy people the evil eye, right Matt? )

Favorite hockey team: The Bolts
Why do you like them? From the area & LOVED the idea of a hockey team in Florida from the start. I had a ton of cool t-shirts when the team first got started, god knows where they went to at this point.
Favorite hockey team as a kid (if different): Bruins - Every New England kid growing up in the 70s knew Esposito and Orr (pronounced O-wah)!
Least favorite: Senators with HM to the Panthers
Favorite active player on your favorite team: Lecavalier
Favorite active player on another team: Khabibulin
All time favorite player if different: Hmm
Favorite teams in other sports: Bucs, Gators

Favorite video/other games: World of Warcraft (and I can stop anytime I want to ) Card playing is like a family tradition, & I've been playing since I was a little kid.
Favorite music: 80s Brit-pop/alternative, especially The Smiths
Favorite movies: Miracle, LOTR series, a zillion other things that are probably WAY too girly to name, also I really like documentaries
Favorite TV show: I really don't like tv but try not to be a snob about it. I spend my tv time on my computer instead!
Favorite beer or alcoholic beverage of choice: Harp! Inspired by a huge discussion on SSN.
Have any interesting hobbies? Not sure how interesting this is, but I like to read and collect hockey books. I know, how appropriate! Some of my favorites are listed here. If I've missed a good one, let me know!

Anything else to share? Nope, not really, but I thought someone else might!

I can't believe that I forgot to about one of my favorite players.......Dustin Brown. I like his physical style and he is starting to fulfill his offensive upside.
