So... I have a kind of embarrassing story to tell. Back in the the day when the Cane's first came to town, I moonlighted doing 24 hour service calls. Got a call one Sunday afternoon and responded to the residence. While I was there the home owner, his friend and I were chatting. Small talk mostly but during they asked me how I liked hockey and had I heard of the Hurricanes. I was a season ticket holder at the Smith center and a huge basketball fan at the time. My response was , "well they look like they are learning the game ,but they have a long way to go before they can compete with college BB around here". It was Gary Roberts and Kevin Dineen. Got to meet several players and got to know a few more over the years after that but that was terribly embarrassing at the time.
