I'm Drew. A graduate of Grand Valley State University. Born in Detroit and raised in the surrounding area, I've been a hockey fan since before I could remember. Attended my first Red Wings play-off game while I was still in diapers. Since, I've attended more Wings games than I can recall at great personal expense, especially the 2009 Winter Classic at Wrigley Field as well as the 2009-2010 season opener in Stockholm. Still residing in Michigan for the time being, but Detroit (and the Mitten in general) will always be home.
