Moved to Columbus just before the announcement of the McConnell and Nationwide deal that led to the construction of the arena and the awarding of the franchise. I had never been exposed to the NHL before, having grown up in Dallas and left for college before the Stars relocated. The Blue Jackets have become a second home. Now my family marks time by hockey landmarks. Always loyal to the CBJ, but always more concerned about the name on the front than the one on the back. I try to see the long term picture and not get caught in the emotion of the moment.
