How ya doing Red Wings fans!
My name is Chris and I am the new lead editor here at the Octopus Thrower. I hope that we will have some great times discussing the one of the greatest hockey teams in the world.
Unlike some others I don’t have a glamorous tale about how I became a Red Wings fan. I didn’t do it as a cause of rebellion against my local club or to follow a team which really inspired me in my youth. No, I was born and raised in Detroit and since the first day I was born I have always loved the Winged Wheel.
As a young kid I used to walk around wearing a Federov jersey that must be so washed out now considering the immense amounts of times I used to wear it. To this day I can’t hate Sergei for leaving, yeah the fallout was bad but he will still be my favorite Red Wing of all time, although, Nick Lidström does come in a very close second.
My favorite Red Wings moment of all time has to no doubt be the ’08 cup run. To see Nick lifting the cup was amazing and to see him retire a few months ago really made me sad. Hopefully it is a moment that we will get to relive this season, well that is if there is a season.
Prior to joining Fansided I blogged over at Prosportsblogging.com were some of you may or may not have a heard about me. I am very honored to be joining such a great network of sport sites and I have some great plans for the Octopus Thrower.
I hope that my time here will not only be fun for me but enjoyable to all you readers as well.
I am very interested in adding multiple writers to the site so if you are interested you can fill out an application here.
Lets Go Red Wings!
