Hockey fan since I first saw the Flames on TV in 1975. Lucky to have WHA Bulls plow through B'ham for three short years. Flames left for Calgary and I was NHL teamless until 1998 when I began following Thrashers. After the Thrashers split for Winnepeg, I'm now 100% a Predators fan instead of a 50% Preds fan. I also follow the Huntsville Havoc of the Southern Professional Hockey League and the University of Alabama-Huntsville hockey squad. Very passionate about USMNT and, obviously, THE Alabama Crimson Tide football and basketball programs. I'm also a beer snob.
