European Blues fan, or to be more precise: Dutch Blues Fan.
That means: from The Netherlands, yes.
AKA Gerard.

Is an impulsive kind of a guy, as became obvious when I decided to fly from across the ocean to STL to visit Blues and the Game Time folks for Game 1 and 2 of the play offs versus San Jose in April 2012.

* Before my most recent visit in 2012 I saw...
... the Blues play in February 2009 in STL as part of a lengthy USA trip from NYC to San Francisco;
... and also saw the Blues play at NHL Premiere in 2009, twice in Stockholm, Sweden (wrote some stories about it for St. Louis Game Time);

* What you did not know:
Subject of a story in GameTime (Feb 2009), contributed on a story for April 1st Jokes (Apr 2011), was a special GT reporter @ NHL Premiere Stockholm, Sweden (Oct 2009) and promoted the Blues and Game Time in an interview with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (Apr 2012)
