    Draft Pick
  1. Hello everyone. I grew up in Winston-Salem. Read old newspapers and subscribed to Hockey News to know anything about hockey. Then moved to Atlanta in 1995 where I eventually got season tickets to the Thrashers for their first two seasons. I had always wanted to fully support a local sports team, so it was neat to join up when it started. After the 2nd season, I moved to Colorado for 2 years. I went to a lot of Avs games and really liked the class of Forsberg and Sakic. The rivalry with the Red Wings was awesome. With Center Ice though, I kept following the Thrashers. I occasionally watched the Canes because by then they had moved through Greensboro to Raleigh after I had moved away from NC. I moved back to Winston-Salem and would go see the Thrashers when they played in Raleigh. The Canes were a rival, but not someone I hated. I even scored tickets to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup vs. Edmonton which was awesome. So when the Thrashers moved to Winnipeg, I wanted to follow them at least one more year before they moved to the Western Conference. But I needed to commit to a long term team. It's a long drive to Raleigh for anything except a weekend game, so my wife and I got a 12pk of Red season tickets for a test drive and to get mostly Saturday games this year. Now I just need to start watching the other games on TV. Looking forward to finally going to RBC and pulling for the home team.
