Hi! I am a hockey fan from Maryland. I cheer for the Devils (and Carolina's game 7 win 3 years ago still brings tears to my eyes), but I really like the Hurricanes; Eric Staal is awesome and I absolutely love Cam Ward. I am also a freelance hockey writer and I am working on my masters degree in writing. This may sound weird, but I am looking for a Hurricanes fan to interview for a story I am writing on hockey's success in the south for one of my classes and I am also hoping to shop it to different publications when it is finished. Specifically, I am looking for someone from Carolina who became a hockey fan because of the Hurricanes. Also, the growth of youth hockey in the south, and specifically North Carolina, is a big component of my story, so it is a bonus if they coach or have a kid that plays hockey. If you are willing to help me out, or no someone who is, send me a message, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks and go 'Canes!
