Born in Southern California, I grew up watching Hockey at the Fabulous Forum in Inglewood, Ca. Although the Kings, at the time were not really much to watch, I just loved Hockey. I played several years of Junior Hockey and found an NHL Idyl in Brendan Shannahan. He played how I wanted to play. Ofcourse, he found his way to a long career with the Detroit Red Wings. Over time, I followed not only him, but the team. After he departed, I just stuck with the Wings as my team. Hockey is my number one passion, outside of my family of course. I live for Red Wings Games, and I am lost several months in the summer when there is no Hockey.
