Raised to bleed Garnet and Gold, Mike’s first passion will always be Florida State football. Though he does enjoy watching just about any sporting event if given the opportunity.
His interest in hockey grew when the team he occasionally followed (Quebec Nordiques) moved to Denver and raised the Cup in their first season. His love of hockey continued when his FSU-based fan site was rebranded in 2010 to become “Free Sports Press” and expand their sports coverage which included the Rapid City Rush (in their 2nd year of existence).
Witnessing them raise the Presidents’ Cup that season was an experience he’ll never forget and both he and his wife have both enjoyed covering the Rush ever since.
