If I was (STILL) a hockey player ...

Wednesday, January 31, 2007

Memories ... memories ...

Well, while I wait for the Doug MacLean Show to start at 3 PM before I make a game day post, I figure I'll kill some time and follow the crowd when it comes to memes.

Team: New Columbus Red Jackets (hah!)

Uniform #: 26 ... because, well, I was 26 at Allegheny College the year I played there. Why? Memories of when I lived at the address 26 Garthwaite Terrace.

Position: Center

Nickname: After going through NHL 07's nickname list, I decided on Moose, only because -- and this is rather insane -- an artist friend of mine who enjoys putting personality-specific "features" on her friends when drawing is obsessed with me having moose antlers. Seriously, don't ask.

Dream linemates: Jason Chimera and John Madden. Seriously, it'd be like watching two fighter jets zip around on the ice.

Rounding out the Power Play: Scott Niedermayer and Bryan Berard. Wonky eye or not, Berard's still got the power play instincts of a hawk.

Job: Net crashing in the offensive zone, and looking for breakout opportunities in the defensive zone.

Signature move: Twisted wristers.

Strengths: Highly intelligent analyzation of what's going on at all times around the ice.

Weakness: Overthinking and over committing when applying pressure.

Equipment: My Canadien 600 wooden stick. Been faithful to me since day one, and has yet to break!

Nemesis: Tough one. I guess Darius Kasparaitis is the only guy that comes to mind that I'd get a kick out of going at it with in a fight.

Scandal involvement: Falling asleep during team meetings and causing dramatic locker room issues, a la Terrell Owens.

Who I'd face in the Stanley Cup Finals: Carolina Hurricanes. Because I have an intense, irrational hatred for all things Dixon-y.

What I'd do with the Stanley Cup after our victory: Gloat. Gloat so much that I'd make even Muhammad Ali look sheepish and reserved.

Would the media love me or hate me: A little bit of both. I'd probably get a lot of love as someone who actually shows passion when on the record compared to most vanilla-flavored hockey players, but also annoying at times for being too honest.

Next up: Normally I avoid tagging, but I'm feeling particularly sadistic today! So I tag Drew and Sherry.

    Alright, I finally got mine up.

    Man, Sleek already tagged me. Does this mean I have to do it twice?

    Either that or you guys both just like torturing me :P

About Me: A mid-20s male who feels much too old even before he's 30. Has a degree in Sport Management and after branching out and trying a few other things in the job market, has finally decided to go back to his first love of hockey and hope he can break in with a team, big or small, somehow.
