When did you first become a Blue Jackets fan, and what drew you towards the team?
Julia: When I was little, my dad and uncle got Blue Jackets tickets and split them. Going to games with my dad was our time to hang out, and I loved it. Eventually my dad ended up getting all the tickets for the season, and I just fell in love with the game.
Julia: I’d have to say my favorite Jackets player would be Cam Atkinson.
Julia: I’d probably choose Brandon Dubinsky. I think he is a good leader, a good player, and a role model for the younger players on the team.
Julia: I like to see them beat Detroit, since we played them in the playoffs. I think a lot of Jackets fans (myself included) have a (perhaps one-sided) rivalry with the Wings.
Julia: I think the start was a bit bumpy. Too many ups and downs, especially coming off of how well the team ended last season. I think they came out a bit slow. I’m hoping to see the Jackets make the playoffs this season, but, unfortunately, I have my doubts. I think they will end up close to a playoff spot, if not grabbing the last one.
Julia: I’m most looking forward to the opportunity that working for Union and Blue will give me to interact with the fans. I love talking hockey, and since I live in Kentucky (I go to the University of Kentucky by the way), no one here really gets my love for hockey. I can’t wait to get going!
