    I guess I'd introduce myself before I started posting. I've been reading these threads religiously for the past couple years and it's really nice to know there are so many people that are passionate about this team. It's also been a place of comfort for me when we get wrecked on what seems to be a nightly basis now. But its ok, Avs are love, Avs are life.

Not a lot of opportunities even now as an adult in the area I live.

Since then I Avs fan!

    Name: Kathleen
    Gender: Female
    Age: 31
    Occupation: librarian
    Favoite Music Artist(s): reggae, R&B, Motown, a little bit of everything else
    Favorite TV show: X-Files
    Favorite Book(s) or Author(s): I like all genres of books
    Favorite Av: I have several including EJ, Landy, and Varly. The newest is Mikko. But really, I appreciate them all for various reasons (including the "scrubs").
    Favorite Ex-Av: Patty
    Favorite non-Av: I don't really go there mentally...maybe Kris Letang
    Next or other favorite team: I put up with the Pittsburgh Penguins, but only because my husband is from the Pittsburgh area and we have agreed to support each other's teams in the interest of harmony.
    How else is hockey in your life?: I don't play; I am too busy watching hockey plus all my other interests.
    Favorite Av moment: What always strikes me is when the Avs first came to Colorado; I distinctly remember how impressed and awed I was by Patrick Roy and the intensity of his blue eyes as well as the equipment, the likes of which I had never seen before. I don't think I ever knew what he actually looked like without the mask until several years later. My family is from New Mexico, and hockey was truly an unfamiliar sport, so Patrick Roy is my first real memory of the sport as well as the Avs!
    How and when did you become an Av fan?: I really began to understand the sport in 2007, but did not specifically pay close attention to the Avs until early 2013. I have to admit that the Ryan 0'Reilly drama plus Jiggy calling the team out was a real attention-grabber that season. The Patrick Roy hire really pulled me in completely without me even realizing it until I had subscribed to Center Ice for the following season. I have been reading all of your comments since 2013. It's been an interesting read for sure!

    How else is hockey in your life?: I've never played hockey (gasp!)
    Favorite Av moment: Being at McNichols for game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals and watching the game on the Jumbotron with my brother and a friend. When Krupp finally scored to settle the incredible goalie battle the place went bonkers! We were seen on TV in the crowd when the Avs won that game and the Cup. I watch clips of that win often on Youtube and always feel fortunate I was able to be with thousands of Avs fans when we won the Cup, even if the team won it in Florida. I traveled to Denver from California where I was living in hopes that I could attend a game, and while I wasn't able to see the Avs play at McNichols during the finals, it was incredibly awesome seeing them win it live.
    How and when did you become an Av fan?: When it was announced that the Nordiques were moving to Denver I became a fan instantly.

    Yeah I have to be honest I don't remember all that much from that night, but I think I remembering being pissed off when the concessions stopped flowing sometime during the night. :laugh:

    Occupation: Barista
    Favorite Music Will listen to damn near anything except for country. Like Jam bands the most.
    Favorite TV show: The Wire right now, Breaking bad before. I don't watch many TV shows, though.
    Favorite Book(s) or Author(s): Don't really read that much anymore, but just finished Game of Thrones. Probably the best "fantasy" series I have ever read and I read a bunch when I was younger.
    Favorite Av: Beauchemin
    Favorite Ex-Av: Forsberg
    Favorite non-Av: Keith, Kane or Datsyuk
    Next or other favorite team: none
    How else is hockey in your life?: I have carpel tunnel syndrome from typing so much on this forum.
    How and when did you become an Av fan?: When it was announced that the Nordiques were moving to Denver I became a fan instantly. My dad had season tickets to the Flame's games in Atlanta for some reason and I grew up as a fan of hockey. I remember liking the Denver Grizzlies for a little bit before the Av's too. My brother played it growing up until he when to high school too, so I went to see him play a lot.
    Favorite Avs moment: When we won the triple overtime game against Chicago in 1996 and how grueling that series was. I have no idea why, but I remember that moment more than others for some reason.

    Occupation: Supervisor at a Hardware Store
    Favoite Music Artist(s): Iron Maiden, Blind Guardian, Kamelot, Insomnium, Nightwish. Heavy Metal Forever!
    Favorite Book(s) or Author(s): Favorite series are Stephen King's "The Dark Tower", plus the Harry Potter series and The Dresden Files.
    Other Hobbies: Stand-up comedy, although I am currently on a bit of a hiatus from performing.
    Favorite Av: Probably MacKinnon, he's the offensive engine of this team, I can't wait to see him take it to the next level. I also really love cheering for Grigorenko.
    Favorite Ex-Av: Patrick Roy. Without Roy, I don't believe this team would ever have won a cup.
    Favorite non-Av: Alex Ovechkin, one of the deadliest shooters in the history of the NHL.
    Next or other favorite team: I like Chicago a lot, and respect what they've been able to do over the dynasty era.
    How else is hockey in your life?: Used to play in a local in-line hockey league in high school. Played defense, but wanted goalie. We had a beast goalie on our team though so I only ever got to play if he was sick and during practice. I miss it, but the investment in equipment is too much for me to handle right now.
    Favorite Av moment: Uwe Krupp's triple OT goal to win the Cup in '96. The shock of the marathon game ending with a single shot was breathtaking.
    How and when did you become an Av fan?: I was 10 when the Avs moved into town, and watched a lot of those games with my dad. I instantly fell in love and wanted to do that myself. I kind of fell out of watching for a few years after Sakic, Forsberg, and Roy retired, and then came back into the fold for the miracle season.

    Occupation: Currently studying in the University of Jyväskylä. Majoring marketing, minoring leadership and information systems. Part time telemarketer.
    Favoite Music Artist(s): This is hard.. I guess I'll go with Metallica, System of a down and In Flames
    Favorite TV show: I have a pretty clear top six. In no order: Sopranos, The Wire, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, House of Cards and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (yeah, anime rocks. I mean, go watch that show. Now. It's that good.)
    Favorite Book(s) or Author(s): I don't remember last book I read. Like seriously. Does Donald Duck count?
    Favorite Av: Matt Duchene
    Favorite Ex-Av: IF I have to pick one it is Peter Forsberg
    Favorite non-Av: Wow, this is a hard question. I have a lot of players that I sympathize. I really dig Erik Karlsson and Joe Pavelski, even tho he is an Avs killer.
    Next or other favorite team: 2. Dallas Stars and 3. San Jose Sharks/Tampa Bay Lightning to name top three favourites. Far from Avs, no worries.
    Favorite Av moment: Well, I have been following team very actively since the start of the 13-14 season, so I guess I have to name that season completely.
    How and when did you become an Av fan?: Picked Avs in NHL games when I was a kid. Who could resist a team full of superb players? Been an Avs fanever since, even tho in mid 2000's I did follow more Manchester United than Colorado Avalanche.

    How and when did you become an Av fan?: Bit of a weird thing, was the year after the lockout (2005-06), didn't really have a team, followed the Habs for a while because of Cristobal Huet and Saku Koivu, then Calgary for awhile cause of Kiprusoff and Phaneuf, but I remember watching Calgary play against Colorado and I just loved their jersey, colour scheme and the way they played so offensively. Started Youtubing the 90s-early 2000 playoff runs, found the entire game 7 2001 final on Youtube. Also how I fell in love with Foppa.
