Born and raised in Chicago, Ill and growing up as a devout Blackhawks fan, I took an immediate interest in the Canes when they (Whalers at the time, of course) came south while I was living in North Carolina. Also, I am an East Carolina University graduate...go Pirates! I fell in love with NC hockey and shifted loyalties my fellow Chicagoans would not approve of!
I am a hardcore Canes fan now living in the greater Washington D.C. area. I attend every game I can when back in the Tarheel state, or even on the road. Whether it's reliving the "Shock at the Rock" or Scott Walker's Game 7 goal on YouTube, or recalling them raising the Cup in 2006, or the Game 7 win stunner over the Caps, I can't get enough Canes. Repping Caniacs here in Caps-land!
