Born and raised on the east coast of Virginia. Never had a pro franchise there so default was D.C. Wouldn't conform and root for D.C. teams. Started following the Wings in 1995 (bad year, swept by Devils) began flying to Detroit with my brother once a year to see them play at the Joe beginnning in 1997. Became an Arsenal fan during the "Invincibles" season of 2004. All my friends were Man U or Chelesea supporters. Gunners Football is much more attractive. Moved to Denver, CO. in 2009. I know, Avs country. But luckily there are just as many Wings fans filling the sits during a Wings V. Avs game so all's good there.
