I'm a Syracuse Crunch season ticket holder and I've been watching the team for 11 years. I'm one of the main (only) contributors to the Crunch blog Chairman How's Glorious Army. I'm a fan of rough, heart-on-your-sleeve, leave everything out there, put up or shut up hockey. I love the enforcer, but I love the puck-stopping defenseman more. My favorite player to ever play the game is Dan Smith. I'm 29 and live in Central NY.
