I have called Rochester my home since birth, never having lived or worked more than 10 miles from the house in which I grew up. While some may consider that crazy, I like to think it demonstrates just how much I love it here. ----- My love for hockey blossomed in the 90s, sparked by the Amerks Calder Cup championship of 1996. Some of the kids graduated to Buffalo and nearly helped give the Sabres a championship in 1999. The developmental pipeline continued into the new century as the Sabres sustained their dominance... before everything went wrong. ----- My favorite players through the decades - for better or for worse - have been Steve Sheilds, Drew Stafford, and Johan Larsson. I sure do know how to pick 'em... just like my favorite teams... I live so that one day I might finally see the Sabres, the Pirates, or the Bills finally win a championship. ----- By day I'm in tech support, but I spend most of my down time making music, playing or going to see live shows, and feeding three insatiable cats.
