I grew up watching the Kansas City Blades and the St. Louis Blues. I played street hockey as a teenager and still play in a roller hockey league every week. I have literally been around the Missouri Mavericks since day one. When I'm not watching hockey, I'm playing it with my 3 little boys or doing the day job of teaching band to 6-12 graders. Hockey is a family affair for us; my wife is a huge Mavs fans and my boys had sticks in their hands as soon as they could walk.
