    Nationality/ethnicity: Norwegian
    Job: Computer Science Student

    Favorite hockey team: Bolts
    Why do you like them? Some friends suckered me into adopting them as a favourite team during the 95/96-season. "This is a team of the future," they said. As we all know, the following years turned out a little different, but I was hooked all the same

    Favorite music: Mountain Goats, Bonnie Prince Billy, Radiohead and a lot of other obscure indie bands.
    Favorite movies: Groundhog Day, Star Wars 4-6, Clerks, Magnolia and several others
    Favorite TV show: Sopranos, I guess. Don't watch a lot of TV
    Favorite beer or alcoholic beverage of choice: No specific favourite really.
    Have any interesting hobbies? Not really. Hobby musician (tries to write songs and play some guitar)

    Anything else to share? I've been a lurker on different Bolt-message boards since 1995/96. I don't get to see much hockey, just online radio the last few years, so I'd like to show my appriciation for all the hockey knowledge that you guys have shared with a noob like me over the years.

                  FWIW, I think this discussion should either be taken private, or at least to the OT forum. Keep this thread clean, y'know?

                        Good God, man! I thought I was borderline insane opting for a strong black woman as a wife. If we ever meet for a beer, I guess we'll have plenty of *war* stories...

                          Lol

                          Oh MY God! Tim I am in your corner man- not beer - Tequila. The "look" is something fierce isn't it?? Strong women are the best though, they keep us on the right path and the kids understand the guidelines----or else.

                            Oh god, why not.

                            Where were you born? Dartmouth, NS
                            Current hometown: Halifax, NS
                            Ever live anywhere else?: Six months in Norfolk, UK
                            Nationality/ethnicity: American, British, Welsh
                            Job: Antiquarian Bookseller

                            Favorite hockey team: Lightning and les Nordiques (adieu)
                            Why do you like them? The Nords because of their AHL affiliate playing in my hometown; the Lightning because I had followed Richards and Lecavalier closely in the Q', and was big fans of them.
                            Favorite hockey team as a kid (if different): Habs and Nords
                            Least favorite: The Leafs
                            Favorite active player on your favorite team: Lecavalier and Rämo
                            Favorite active player on another team: Sakic
                            All time favorite player if different: Roy, Lemieux (Mario AND Claude), Nilan
                            Favorite teams in other sports: Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics (NE bias does not carry over to hockey)

                            Favorite video/other games: Eastside Hockey Manager, FREEWARE edition. I'm going to win a cup with my expansion team, so help me!
                            Favorite music: Post-punk along the lines of The Gun Club, Minutemen, Gang of Four; what might be labelled "college rock" such as The Replacements, Violent Femmes; and whiskey-voiced singer-songwriters like Tom Waits and Mark Lanegan
                            Favorite movies: Big Kubrick backer, so Dr Strangelove and 2001 are near the top... Vertigo, City of God, Withnail & I, The Big Sleep, &c., &c.
                            Favorite TV show: Big fan of Pushing Daisies and How I Met Your Mother right now... Lost and BSG, too, but the "hiatuses" may put the kaibosh on that for a year or so...
                            Favorite beer or alcoholic beverage of choice: I consider myself a bit of a beer snob. Any trip down to the States MUST involve a stop at one of those giant specialty liquor stores to load up on my quota of individual imports and microbrews. I'm particularly fond of most Belgian Trappist ales, German Dunkel-Weißes, and very hoppy IPAs. I'm indifferent to nearly all of our domestics, though I'm quite fond of the new Alexander Keith's traditional lager which came out late last year. I'd rather have one or two pints of something good than a case of swill.
                            Have any interesting hobbies? Being a bookseller by trade, I've acquired a fairly sizeable library myself (mostly contemporary British fiction and travel writing... to satiate the wanderlust that I could have afforded to fulfil in person had I not wasted all of my money on travel writing It's a vicious cycle, being a glutton...)

                                Drop the panthers from this and you'll fit in just fine.
