What inspired you to come to your first Rampage game?
My husband and I have always loved watching hockey games and used to go to Bruins games when we lived in Boston, so when our kids starting watching hockey on TV, we wanted to share the love of the game with them. They were hooked the moment they saw T-Bone!
Who is your all-time favorite Rampage player and why?
Matt Climie, not only because he is a great goalie, but because as he was coming off the ice last year, he handed my daughter a game puck. It was an exciting day for us!
What is your favorite Rampage moment of all time?
Every game when T-Bone busts out and our kids light up and start yelling for him is always my favorite moment.
What do you enjoy most about Rampage games?
How family oriented they are, and how not only can you watch great hockey and learn the sport, but be entertained the entire time with the games, T-Bone, falling cows, etc.
What are you looking forward to most in 2011-12?
Learning all the new players since we have a new team!
Why do you deserve to win 10 years worth of season tickets?
My son is only 6 and has been obsessed with hockey since he was two. This would guarantee him the chance to learn more about the sport he loves growing up in a state that doesn’t offer a lot of opportunities to celebrate hockey.
What would you do with your 10 years worth of season tickets?
Share our love of hockey! Many of the games, my husband would probably just take my son, but for all the weekend games, we would buy 2 additional seats so the whole family can go and enjoy in the fun. Additionally, I am very involved with the Boys and Girls club of San Antonio, and this may afford me the opportunity to share the sport with some of the club kids. Many of them come from single-parent homes, so this could be a great opportunity for that mom to spend quality time with her child that she may not otherwise be able to afford to do.
Is there anything else that you would like to share with us?
I am an incredibly competitive person, and knowing how much this would mean to my son makes me want it even that much more! I’m in it to win it!
How did you get your kids so into hockey being in south Texas?
I am originally from Rhode Island, and my husband is from here. He played College in-line hockey, and when we moved up to New England and got married in Boston, my wedding gift to him was all the ice hockey equipment. He fell in love with playing ice hockey and as soon as our son was born started teaching him. We eventually moved back to Texas, but our love for ice hockey remains! My son started skating at 4 and plays on the Mites Junior Rampage, and my daughter is 3 and is starting to learn to skate. They both love the sport.
