Longtime Red Wing fan...about 45 years worth. Considering I live in the outskirts of Chicago, it hasn't been easy being among the uninformed and ill-decided. Three sons and a grandson later, two are Blackhawk fans (gasp!) and two are Red Wing fans (pumping fist) which leads to some interesting discussions at times. As I've entered into my 52nd year on this planet, I've learned a few things and while I've probably learned from more mistakes then not, I can honestly say there is no other sport which compares to hockey. I've played baseball, football, basketball, golf, bowling, raced cars, motorcycles, and through it all I've had a lifetime of fun, excitement and have met some of the nicest, some of the strangest, and even some of the meanest people you could ever hope to meet. I'm sure I'll make new friends here within SB Nation and I'm sure I'll piss some people off here within SB Nation as well. Law of averages says you can't have one without the other so I accept that and move forward from there.

A Fan Of...
