Hah! Looks like I'm a rare breed here. Thanks for the welcome. There are alot of hockey fans in Texas; we have a little bit of everything, but football is king to most. Baseball is my passion, hockey is getting close.

Back home we had a hockey team (Texas Wildcatters of the ECHL), but they weren't very good at the time. Last year I think they made the playoffs.

Growing up, I always knew about Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Mike Modano, etc.; just never watched a game. An arcade game years ago slighty got me into it: NHL Open Ice Challenge by Midway. That game is really fun, I still play it today. Been playing NHL 07 and 08; that's been something of a learning tool.
