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.

Who is your favorite Blue Jackets player on the current roster?

Julia: I’d have to say my favorite Jackets player would be Cam Atkinson.

If you could choose the teams next captain right now, who would it be?

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.

Who is your favorite team to see the Jackets beat, and why?

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.

UBGooglePlusHow do you feel about the start to the season / where do you think the CBJ will finish this year?

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.

What are you looking forward to most in working with Union and Blue?

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!

Thanks Julia for the interview! You can follow her on twitter here.  Be sure to look for her first post, coming soon!
