I'm a North Carolina native and NC State grad, and my husband, son and I have been Canes season ticket holders since relocating back to Raleigh before the 2005-06 championship season. If there's a Carolina Hurricanes event going on anywhere in the vicinity, chances are I'm there.
Oh, and I've been known to take a picture or two at a hockey game.
