    Cool, someone else from Toronto.

    I did just see a random guy wearing a canes hat yesterday, too.

    Nice to see there are more of us.

    Be a whole lot cooler if you were from YYZ. YTZ just doesn't have the same ring to it.

    yeah but despite what Rush would have you believe, the YYZ airport isn't in Toronto. it's in a suburb. YTZ is the cooler island airport right in downtown where you can have cocktails before you go through security.

    What brought you to HF Boards: Googled “Doc Emerick voice nails on chalkboard” a couple days ago and ended up here.
    How you became a hockey fan: Watching Hockey Night in Canada on a B&W TV that was so snowy a lot of the time I could barely see what was going on. I guess it was the 70s. I was hooked immediately and went out and read as much as I could find on the game and the players.
    How you became a Canes fan: When the Whalers moved down to Greensboro and became the Hurricanes, I consciously decided to put away loyalties to my favorite team and become a Canes fan. (Not to say I still don’t have some loyalties to my previous favorite team)
    Favorite thing about being a Canes fan: Hard to say.
    Favorite Cane's Player(s): I don’t really have a current favorite, maybe Aho. All time – Arturs Irbe
    Favorite NON Cane's Player(s): Phil Kessel, Marc-Andre Fleury
    Other Sports You Like: Baseball a bit, but I don’t follow any team anymore
    Other Sports Teams You Cheer For: Pittsburgh Penguins
    College Attended/Attending: CTI
    Video Game Systems Owned: None
    Favorite Game(s): None
    Music You Listen To: Oldies
    Favorite Movie(s): The Princess Bride
    Favorite Book(s): Game of Thrones (GRRM), Mordant’s Need (Stephen R. Donaldson)
    Favorite Food(s): Nothing in particular.
    Favorite TV Show(s): Once Upon a Time (cancelled); Quantum Leap (in syndication)
    Hockey Jerseys In Wardrobe: Several Hurricanes, older ones, home and away. One autographed Irbe white one, the others generic except some of them I got autographs on
    Anything Else: I got to ride on the Zamboni once, which was fun.

    If this doesn’t sum up the last decade of being a Canes fan, I don’t know what does. Welcome!

    We like Princess Bride and we love Mel Brooks, but do we have an opinion of Cary Elwes? I have hard time passing his antagonizing Topper Harley.

There wasn't many reasons to follow NHL before him.

    Not sure what the point of that would be...all the nametags would say "BBA's hotwife".
