    I thought about suggesting this a while back, but I figure now that I've got some power I'll take an executive action or two. ;)

    Original introductions thread HERE

    Join our Facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/#!/group.php?gid=22018742631

    The old thread is 3 years old, so I think it's time for some re-introductions. Some of us have moved on, some are fresh off the boat, and I'm sure some of us have changed a little bit over the course of a few years. So, even if you posted in the old thread, go ahead and post again here. You can just copy and paste your post from the old thread if you want. If you want to be a spoilsport, that is. If you can think of any other questions that would be good, I will add them.

    Name: Jonathan
    Age: 23
    Sex: Male
    Where You're From: Belmont, NC (just west of Charlotte)
    Where You Live Now: New Jersey
    Nationality: American
    Hair Color: Brown
    Eye Color: Hazel
    Mode of Transportation: 2003 Honda Accord
    Job: IT business analyst stuff or something like that
    What brought you to HF Boards: The business of hockey forum became my home for getting my hopes up that the end of the lockout was "IMMINENT" and that the season was on in 04-05, only to be devastated again and again and again. I started going to the chat long before I actually registered on the forum, then finally started posting here at the start of the 05-06 season.
    How you became a hockey fan: Attended some Charlotte Checkers games as a kid. At the 1996 trade deadline, Wayne Gretzky was traded to the Blues, and my curiosity was perked by Gretzky and Hull playing together. I started watching them and then fell in love with the Detroit Red Wings in the 7 game playoff series that year where Yzerman scored in overtime to knock out St. Louis. A year later, Hartford shocked me by announcing the relocation to North Carolina. I continued to be a fan of both the Canes and Wings until the 2002 Finals when Detroit broke my heart and I kicked them to the curb.
    How you became a Canes fan: There was never any question about it. The day the Hartford announcement was made, I started reading up on Andrew Cassels, Geoff Sanderson, Glen Wesley, Sean Burke, etc, and started getting excited about having NHL hockey in my state.
    Favorite thing about being a Canes fan: The passion of our fans, from the tailgating to the playoff noise. We are a small market and don't have a huge fan base, but the fans we do have are very dedicated and knowledgeable. A friend of mine once commented on how crazy he thought it was when he went to his first game and it seemed like everyone in the building had a jersey.
    Favorite Cane's Player(s): I don't really pick favorites on the Canes, but right now I'll say Staal, Sutter, Ruutu, McBain, Pitkanen, and Gleason.. okay that's a lot lol
    Favorite NON Cane's Player(s): Marian Gaborik
    Other Sports You Like: football and European soccer
    Other Sports Teams You Cheer For: Arsenal FC, NC State, Carolina Panthers
    College Attended/Attending: Graduated from NC State in 2007, attending grad school at Rutgers
    Video Game Systems Owned: Xbox 360 (Dale Cooper 91 on Xbox Live), PS1, SNES, and PC of course
    Favorite Game(s): NHL, Madden, FIFA, Company of Heroes, Half Life 2, Team Fortress 2 and Classic
    Music You Listen To: http://last.fm/user/vulcan91
    Favorite Movie(s): Brazil, Miller's Crossing, The Big Lebowski, Back to the Future, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Adaptation, Dr. Strangelove, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, Goodfellas, The Royal Tenenbaums, Lost in Translation, Casablanca, Mulholland Dr., Chungking Express, Apocalypse Now, Citizen Kane, Roger & Me, Hoop Dreams, Sherman's March to name a few
    Favorite Book(s): Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, Brave New World, Catcher in the Rye, Cat's Cradle, Breakfast of Champions, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Princess Bride, Lolita, They Don't Play Hockey in Heaven, Harry Potter, Kitchen Confidential, Band of Brothers
    Favorite Food(s): So many different things it would be impossible to say. I generally like local foods that are prepared really well, but not really upscale expensive places. More like street foods, and unhealthy stuff. North Carolina BBQ is a favorite, of course. Doner kebob, currywurst... Breakfast food... Mmm... Basically anything with meat; I could never be a vegetarian. Chicken is the worst and blandest meat.
    Favorite TV Show(s): Twin Peaks, Band of Brothers, 24, Scrubs, Hockey Night in Canada, Survivorman, Family Guy, American Dad, Futurama, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Seinfeld, South Park, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Prison Break, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations

    Job: Epic Analyst for Wake Forest, Brewer and Events for Gizmo Brew Works
    What brought you to HF Boards: Information on the top prospects for the upcoming draft (back in 01) and a lack of general knowledge on the Canes official board at the time.
    How you became a hockey fan: Kindof born into it
    How you became a Canes fan: Was a fan of both the Whalers and Penguins when I lived in the north, never living all that close to either team. I moved down here in the winter of 96, the following fall the Canes would move down here and it didn't take much for them to become my team. I no longer follow the Penguins like I used to, too many things happened while and since I've been out of college. Between the Orpik incident (and the reaction by their fanbase to it) and the lack of any players that I really like on their team anymore I just don't care now.
    Favorite thing about being a Canes fan: Tailgating in the parking lot before playoff games. That's just an atmosphere you won't find anywhere else in the league.

BOURQUE?!!! id sooner die. my team was in carolina so i had no choice but to suck it up and follow them as i had previously. i like the avs a lot more now that the old roster has turned over.

    By the way, Caniac from App State, we have one other thing in common. I was a huge Miami Dolphins fan - before they became a power - in the early 1970's. I watched firsthand the 17-0 1972 team and loved every minute of it. After I became a sportswriter I ceased being a fan much, but I lived and breathed Dolphins football for a long while.
