This should be in the watercooler as I assume it'll be moved ther ein the next couple minutes bu I'll play along.

I'm Trey. 24. Born in Detroit at Children's Hospital. Moved to Chicago as a youngin' then moved up to the Traverse City area on Toch Lake.

Spent my first year of college at Michigan tech for Electrical and Computer engineering. Transferred form there to Central michigan and did some modeling for Hollister.

I just graduated in December from Central Michigan double majoring in Sports management and Economics with a minor in Business Administration.

Became a fan of the NHL in the early 90s thanks to my hardcore hockey cousins and expidited by the original NHL 9X series haha. Originally a Black Hawk fan growing up due to being in Chicago as a child and them being the first NHL team I had ever seen.

Once I moved to Michigan two decades ago I became a hardcore Red Wing and Detroit tiger's fan.

I have a girlfriend I've been dating for a couple months. No kids. A giant yellow Chevy Avalanche that can be an eyesore for miles.

No job, because michigan sucks.

I learned Russian with hopes to move to moscow and GM a KHL team in the future.

Love the Chili Peppers and can't stand rap. I have an unusual obsession with getting drunk and singing Taylor Swift songs for some reason with my girlfriend. I haven't seen a movie I don't like as I enjoy every movie.

What's playing on my i-pod right now, no cheating, BEDlight for BlueEYES - Micheal.

My name's Matt. I'm 24 and was born in Winnipeg, grew up in Dryden,Ontario(Northwestern Ontario) and now living in Calgary.

I went to school for Instrumentation in Thunder Bay but didn't like it so moved to Calgary and now I'm an Electrician.

I love soccer, football, curling and baseball outside of hockey.

I became a Wing's fan in 93 after my Dad convincd me finally to not hope for the Jet's. He must have seen in to the future and saw the Jet's moving to Phoenix.

I'm a huge Dave Matthew's fan and really do like all sorts of music besides rap.

And like Konnan I am in the process of learning Russian myself. Mainly just for fun.

Karen here. Born in 1966 in West Point, NE. Moved 2 months later to Springfield, IL. Moved a year later to Wolsely, SK. Moved 4 1/2 years later to Gary, SD. In 1975, moved to Valley City, ND. From 1981-1984 I was in Prairie du Chein, WI. Then back to Valley City, finally moving to Fargo, ND in Dec, of 1994.

I have a degree in music with a minor in psychology. I recently went back to school for Pharmacy Tech (looking for employment in that field). I have worked for the last 11 1/2 years in a plant making sewer pipe fittings, and on the weekends I work graveyard shift at a convenience store.

Have a bf who is pretty cool, and we are both so darn old that we don't need to see much of each other to be happy, which works out well for both of us as we are solitary types.

I teach Sunday School grades 1-4 and all ages music.

I have never been probed by aliens.

Still working toward a Bachelor's (slow process obviously but past the halfway point!), work as a pseudo systems engineer for a telecom company.

Been a Wings fan since I discovered hockey in '94 (rare in AZ, adopted all my dad's MI sports teams... including the damn Lions)

Drive a Nissan Maxima

Single - although tiring of bachelor life finally I think

Love most rock.. well mostly the 60's through 90's.

And I believe in the possibility of extraterrestrial life out there far, far away. Might be willing to be probed in the name of science and good times (jk) tongue.gif

I'll bite. Seems like a cool way to get to know fellow posters.

Name's Anthony. Half Italian on my father's side.

Born in 1989.

Went to Michigan Tech University for a year (Civil Engineering Major) but realized that I was not at all interested in the engineering aspect of building design so I transferred to Lawrence Tech University for an Architecture major. Been there for 1.5 full years and hoping to graduate in spring 2012.

Single and unemployed at the moment due to my difficult school schedule and the economy.

Hockey is one of my greatest passions. Been playing about twice a week and hoping to join the club team at my college next year.

I enjoy alternative and hard rock, some metal, and some classic stuff. Very interested in the history of architecture and especially Roman architecture. I even went to Rome for a week and was blessed by the Pope in St. Peter's square. Actually if you watch "Angels and Demons" the map that Tom Hanks's character uses is the exact same one that I had when I was there.

Hoping to become an established architect in the future and if I'm lucky design the next arena for the Detroit Red Wings in 30 or 40 years (assuming a new arena is built within the next five years).

I guess I can do this as well.

My name is Gerald. 33 y/o. Living in southern California. I am about 15 minutes from the Honda Center.

My dad is from Calgary and my mom from the Windsor area. I could have easily been a Flames fan, but sided with with my mom as a youngster watching the Wings just prior to them drafting Steve Yzerman. So 1982 was the earliest memory of watching them.

I have always played hockey as a defensemen. I haven't played in nearly two years, due to two motorcycle accidents. Two concussions, broken ankles, and other misc. broken bones, ligaments, tendons and so on, have left me to hang the skates up.

I work as a technical associate and service technician for Harley-Davidson. I have been doing this for about 6 years now. Previously worked for a pro drag racing team, that traveled the country.

And I have one very beautiful daughter, that is just over a year old.

i'm 19. spent ages 3-10 in suburbs of chicago, the rest in southeastern ohio. i hate it here.

i have no real life and virtually no friends, so i waste my life at the computer posting on forums, reading, listening to music and watching movies. seems like i have some bad social anxiety. nobody here actually cares about hockey so my only way of playing is shooting a puck into a trash can in the garage by myself. i generally suck at everything i enjoy.

didn't have enough credits to graduate high school so i'm repeating my senior year, albeit with only 3 classes. not exactly a self-esteem booster. no interest in going to college, so i'll probably work some minimum wage job for the rest of my life and live by myself. perpetually single.

Alright, I'll bite.

My name is Pat...I'm the oldest one to post here yet...born in the 50's. I grew up watching Hockey Night in Canada, and have been a Wings fan forever. I also love curling, rugby, lacrosse and Aussie Rules football. Yes, I am definitely off the beaten path.

I've been married for 32 years, no kids...unless you want to count my two dogs, who are like kids to me. They're named Kira and Loki.

I'm what is known as a wellspouse...this is the husband, wife or partner who stays at home and takes care of a totally disabled wife, husband or partner. You basically give up your working life to take care of your partner. Doesn't pay worth s***, but I can't complain.

My tastes in music are quite eclectic...Celtic, Cajun, rock, jazz, new age, World music, blues, classical...no rap or metal though...gives me a headache. And dance music all sounds the same after 30 seconds.

I love photography (some of my pics are on Facebook), reading, traveling and watching hockey, and I dabble in music...I can play a little bit of guitar and accordion.

My name's Paul (first time ever on LGW!)

I'm 29, I live in Ann Arbor, I am a few credits short of a triple major in vocal performance/musical theatre/theatre, I am a trained vocalist, have played the violin for 20 years, am a professionally trained stuntman, I played varsity football and baseball in high school as well as lettering in theatre and violin, and played club hockey in college.

I prefer variations of rock music, although anything with a musical sound and a flow to it that isn't flat out annoying and repetetive is something I might listen to.

I'm epileptic, although I take meds and my seizures are mostly under control.

I'm married and have two amazing sons (3, 4) and one wonderful stepdaughter (10).

My birthday is next month, and I would love to be able to buy myself an electric violin but will likely never have that kind of spare cash. My parents already bought me my birthday present....tie rods and tires for my car! Wooo!

why not...

I'm Dan, and kook is a play on my last name and only coincidentally related my mental disposition. I'm 34, born upstate NY, moved to Dearborn before I was 2 until 9, moved to suburban L.A., went to college in NYC, went back to LA after, came back a few years after that. My wife, daughter and I now live in Jersey City which sucks and want to try to move near her folks in the NW Chicago burbs.

I played hockey, including youth, college club and beer league from 4 up until maybe 4 years ago when chronic tennis elbow put an end to it. I also coached for a few years at my old high school before I moved back to the NY area (they really do have HS hockey in LA now, even if it is brutal - our team was all beginners). I have a bachelors of music for music business, but gave up on record companies right when I graduated, so I got an MBA and after a couple things in between now work freelance doing production accounting for TV and film. I've been taking a break to stay home with my 7 month old daughter since August, and am studying for the CPA exam which I hope to take this spring.

I guess you could also say I now collect the guitars and amps that I used to play more, although I get to play acoustic for my daughter every day and she loves it smile.gif. I'm mostly a rock guy, but love jazz, funk, even some country - mostly classics of any variety.

works every time
