                  Whereabouts in Ayreshire? Spent quite a bit of time up there when I was younger as my grandparents lived in Prestwick.

                  • Spent some time in Edinburgh and the Isle of Sky back in 1987--loved every minute. There was the "Wee Little Guest House" that my wife and I fondly remember.

                      • I've been lurking around these parts for about 4-5 months now, and with the advent of my broken ankle, I figured I might as well make an account.

                        Where were you born? Westminster, MD
                        Current hometown: Ellenton, FL
                        Ever live anywhere else?: Lived in Valrico during middle school and Freshman year of high school.
                        Nationality/ethnicity: English, but my ancestors were loyalists and moved to PEI during the Revolution, eventually moving back down to the U.S.
                        Job: AVID Tutor, but mainly I'm a student. I worked at Kmart up until I broke my ankle. Don't know if I want to go back...

                        Favorite hockey team: Lightning
                        Why do you like them? Got into hockey when watching them in the playoffs against Washington and New Jersey in 02-03. Followed them all throughout next season and well... it was kind of easy to get hooked on them back then.
                        Favorite hockey team as a kid (if different): Didn't watch hockey, or sports in general.
                        Least favorite: Atlanta, Panthers. Rangers fans are the worst though.
                        Favorite active player on your favorite team: Used to be Vinny, but he's been overtaken by Stamkos.
                        Favorite active player on another team: Parise, Recchi.
                        All time favorite player if different: Quickly becoming Stamkos. :]
                        Favorite teams in other sports: Rays

                        Favorite video/other games: Don't play video games much anymore. I liked the 64.
                        Favorite music: Almost anything.
                        Favorite movies: The Matrix, Forrest Gump, Starwars... There's lots but I don't want to make a laundry list.
                        Favorite TV show: Hockey.
                        Favorite beer or alcoholic beverage of choice: I don't care if it's hipster beer. PBR is good.
                        Have any interesting hobbies? I played hockey for Riverview high school till about a quarter of the way through senior year, when I felt I needed to focus on other things. One of the dumbest decisions of my life... I also enjoy doing science.

                        • Welcome, hope the ankle is better soon! Wouldn't blame you for not going back to Kmart, that was my vacation job during college, not something I'd want to do again.
