In the blogging world, I write for the Dallas Stars blog, Defending Big D, on the SBN network of blogs.

In the real world, I'm a corporate tech support drone.

In the hockey world, I fell in love with this great game back in 1986 as a Blackhawks and Islanders fan. Slowly but surely began transitioning over to the Stars as my favorite when they moved to Dallas in 1993 (took a few years because the North Stars beat the Hawks in the first round in 1991).

But I still love that the Hawks have returned to the NHL's elite from Hockey Siberia and yearn for the day when John Tavares can lead the Isles all the way back.
