What inspired you to come to your first Rampage game?
I came to my first Rampage game because I needed my hockey fix. After having lived in Tennessee for three years and going to many Nashville Predators games and far too many games back home for the Erie Otters and Erie Panthers I needed a hockey fix.
Who is your all-time favorite Rampage player and why?
My favorite Rampage player on an all-time roster would have to be Matt Climie.
What do you enjoy most about Rampage games?
It's hockey. That’s what I enjoy the most.
What are you looking forward to most in 2011-12?
In 2011-12 I look most forward to being able to sit in the regular seats, not handicapped seating. I'm hoping to see my first Rampage game from the glass.
Why do you deserve to win 10 years worth of season tickets?
I hope to win because I'm a die-hard hockey fan who will never be able afford the cost of season tickets.
What would you do with your 10 years worth of season tickets?
I will take my 8 year old son to every game because he's even more of a hockey fan than me.
Can you elaborate on your sled hockey experience?
I began playing sled hockey after seeing some signs around the Center For the Intrepid. I asked my therapist, he said “sure why don't you come on out”. After my first practice I was hooked. When I was younger I played street hockey (always played goalie because no one else wanted to). I knew I wanted to play goalie for sled hockey, and after bugging the coaches enough they let me try it out. I knew immediately I was at home in my blue crease.
