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 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" moment on YouTube, or recalling them raising the Cup in 2006, or my man crush for Mike Commodore, I can't get enough Canes! Huge Erik Haula fan. Repping the Caniacs in Caps-land!
