Hockey Survey

ok, so i wasn't going to do this, but i changed my mind. my answers will be quite different from those from whom i snitched this (deva and nessa). maybe you guys will learn something about my hockey tastes... or maybe not.

1) What’s (Who’s?) your favorite team?
ECHL - Pensacola, of course; NHL - Flyers; AHL - who cares about the AHL? i don't get to see them, so it almost feels like the AHL doesn't exist (unless they take pensacola's players and break them, those bastards)
2) What’s your least favorite team? ECHL - the damn sea wolves when they're around (but i do miss their presence), damn greenville; NHL - damn ottawa; AHL - like i said before, who cares? (well, i guess i'd care if i lived near an AHL city)
3) Who’s your favorite player(s)? ECHL/AHL - chris st. jacques, kelly hultgren; NHL - antero niittymaki, michal handzus, joni pitkanen
4) Who’s your least favorite player(s)? derian hatcher, jaromir jagr, darius kasparitis
5) Favorite American team? Pensacola
6) Favorite Canadian team? i have a... strong dislike for most of the canadian teams in the eastern conference of the NHL, and i don't really see much of the western teams, but if i had to pick one i'd say calgary. if i didn't have to pick an NHL team, i'd say this year's olympic team.
7) Favorite International team? i guess i have to say team USA, but team finland is so kicking ass... and they have some of my favorite NHL players (though sami kapanen and joni pitkanen opted out of the olympics due to recent injuries)
8) Who’s your favorite goalie? Antero Niittymaki
9) Least favorite goalie? Roman Cechmanek
10) Favorite fighter? Donald Brashear, Bill Kinkel
11) Least favorite fighter? Tie Domi, Brian McGrattan, Dallas Anderson
12) Favorite jersey/uniform/outfit/sweater? last year's pensacola blue jerseys
13) Least favorite jersey/uniform/outfit/sweater? Philadelphia's 3rd jerseys, boston's 3rd jerseys, nashville's 3rd jerseys, atlanta's 3rd jerseys - it's a tie. they're all butt ugly.
14) Do you like home, away, or "third" jerseys best? (If your team has all three…) Flyers home jerseys, last year's pensacola blue jerseys (i don't like the red/black thing this season)
15) Who do you want to win the Cup? since i don't think the pilots have a snowball's chance in hell, i'd like to see florida with the kelly cup and the flyers with the stanley cup
16) What player do you most admire? Donald Brashear - he's historically known as a fighter, but his "finesse game" has really picked up this year, and he's become a pretty good all around player.
17) Which player would you most like to sit and have coffee with? Keith Primeau
18) What about a beer? hmm... don't do beer, but i'd do a nice fruity malt beverage with a jacquo or a cam keith or maybe a mike richards or joni pitkanen
19) How about just watch the game with? Ben Eager or Branko Radivojevic
20) Have an in-depth hockey conversation with? Keith Primeau
21) Do you collect hockey cards, memorabilia, etc? no to cards, yes to random memorabilia
22) If so, what’s your favorite card? N/A
23) Which is worth the most, and what’s it worth? N/A
24) Do you live by any hockey players? nah, but there are some baseball players pretty close
25) Do you play hockey? dude, i can't even skate (the wall is my savior)
26) What do you wear to hockey games? jeans, my jacquo jersey, sometimes a cute shirt, sometimes a plain ol' t-shirt, sneakers or cute shoes depending on what else i'm wearing, usually a light jacket under the jersey too (i get cold at games - even with all those clothes)
27) Do you have any "watching hockey rituals" or anything anyone might consider weird? nah, but i talk to the players a lot even though i know they can't hear me
28) What’s your favorite hockey memory (as a fan?) these aren't really hockey memories, but they involve hockey players, and there are two: 1) kissing valentino passarelli on the cheek at stick up for kids (then blushing and giggling like the crazy teenaged girl i was) 2) going up to an injured martin lachaine for an autograph, asking him why he wasn't playing, and bursting into mad giggles when he said, "i hurt my groin." hey, i was like 15... (maybe 16)
29) What’s your favorite hockey commercial? the budweiser ones are always good
30) Rudest/meanest/most annoying, etc? ...Tie Domi, Brian McGrattan, Darius Kasparitis
31) Who’s the best looking? Kelly Hultgren
32) Other off-handed/off-ice comments? eh
33) Why do you really like hockey? the physical play - i love the hitting
34) Fav. hockey player: not a goalie- Joni Pitkanen

"See you Thursday!!" And you still want to have a fruit drink with Cam Keith!!!

At least we all agree with Dallas Anderson as least favorite fighter ....

Vanessa Mae said...

I can't believe you said Cam. It cracks me up, and I can't believe it.

I had to laugh when I read your favorite hockey memories. I was there for BOTH of them. Ahhhh, there are some of my favorite memories as well.

Vanessa Mae said...

Oh, and I forgot to mention that I share your love for Team Finland... but for a different reason. Janne Niinimaa, of course!

ok, let me explain the having a drink with cam thing... i find it easier to berate virtual strangers when i've got a little liquid courage in me. that's why i said cam - so i could chew him out.
