Northern Transplant

Recommended Posts

back in '04. Was a 'Canes supporter when I heard about the team curtaining off the 400 level when they played in Greensboro. I really wanted to see hockey make it in the South. Rooted hard for them in '02 (mostly for my hatred of Detroit). Really moved them ahead of some of my perennial favorites: The Rangers (was a fan since I was old enough to know what hockey was, but alas, I can no longer root for them); The Caps (lived in Northern Va. for a few years and even before then during the Langgway years); the Habs (because theyre the Habs) when I went to Game Seven at RBC vs. BUF. I have been to games from the old Montreal Forum down the East Coast to Tampa Bay, and I have never heard a rowdier crowd (including Game 5 at Madison Sqare Garden in '94 vs. VAN).

As a life-long supporter of all things hockey (started skating at 3 years old, playing hockey at 5, played college and All-Army Elite in Europe), I can safely say I have been off the bandwagon for a few years now and root for the Carolina Hurricanes above all others.

God bless all you supporters of hockey in NC. You make me proud to call this my home state.

LET'S GO 'CANES!

Wow, what a great post. I really wish I had all that hockey history in my background but alas, I was born and bred right here in ACC Heaven with no hockey-fan influence. But I'm making up for that now and raising a Caniac from birth, my 5yr old son. Welcome to the boards!

fpsndiver, Technically, the guy your referring to was born in Canada (see Wikipedia entry and Patty O's Rinkrat interview) and his father was from Toronto. I think sitcknpuck was talking about wanting to see a NC native from NC parents who didn't grow up with the game in their blood crack the NHL game. That, indeed, would be something!
