A (mostly) unapologetic bigamist fan of two NHL teams, which fortunately never have anything to do with each other -- thus preventing really awkward moments at family functions.

It's complicated. And painful.

Dad - a Blues '67 fan - said: "Hey, we sent Bowman away. We sent Arbour away. Follow this team if you must, but keep an eye on Arbour's Islanders."

Confused but knowing not to cross my father, I did both. Addiction set in early. I've rooted for every Sutter except Darryl. The Milbury years nearly ended me. But they also gave me some perspective on how to truly enjoy this sport, one knifing at a time.

I'm still delicately rebuilding the Blues half of my soul after Bill Laurie dropped one last pile of Paige (Sports!) on it. These things take time.

A Fan Of...

  • NHL New York Islanders
  • Golf Foghorn Leghorn
  • Soccer Arsenal, mostly, but my football cup runneth over.
  • NASCAR The guy who turns right
  • Boxing Steve Webb
  • General Yep, St. Louis Blues, too
  • Tennis Federerererer
  • MMA The guy with the blood
  • Cycling Dope
  • Fantasy Darkness Before Dawn
  • Winter Olympics Money Is Not Our God
  • Figure Skating Slipstream
  • Wrestling $, 0, 36
  • Serie A Inter
  • La Liga Atlético
