Weight: 185

Hair Color: Brown

Eye Color: Brown

Job: Student

How you became a jersey collector: I don't really know... hockey is just in my blood and when ever I've liked a certain player enough, I ultimately had to have their jersey. Forsberg when I was a kid. Zetterberg during the Wings' cups runs. Ovechkin. Toews' Olympic jersey and winter classic/alternate last year. (Not quite) half the Rangers friggin' roster! It's just a way of expressing myself as a fan. I mount most of them on the walls of my apartment.

Favorite Player: All-time Peter Forsberg. Currently... a bunch. Dubi and Cally. Lundqvist. Zetterberg, Toews, Datsyuk, Ovie. Really like what I've seen of Burmistrov so far.

Favorite Player to hate: Marty Brodeur. Used to hate Modano as well.

Video Game Systems Owned: PS3.

Favorite Game(s): I pretty much only play NHL 11. Occasionally something like Uncharted or Assassin's Creed comes out and holds my attention.

Music You Listen Too: A mix. A lot of Pearl Jam, Incubus, Muse, Floyd, Hendrix, Soulive, Beatles, Dylan, John Mayer, John Frusciante, Kid Cudi, Jay Z, Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West, Common, Mos Def, The Roots.

Favorite Movie (s): Snatch, Fight Club, The Prestige... Pineapple Express... a lot of stuff, I own a ton of movies.

Favorite TV Show: Eh, I'm not really a TV person. I watch Entourage with my housemates, the Office occasionally. Mostly just watch hockey.

Anything Else: I'm a huge Rangers fan, and a student playing my last year of DII Club Hockey.

Name: Jeremy

Age: 18

Sex: M

Birthplace: Oceanside, NY

Nationality: American

Hair Color: Brown

Eye Color: Brown

Mode of Transportation: Mercury Mariner

Job: Student

How you became a jersey collector: My uncle bought me my first jersey when I was 7 and started asking for jerseys for my birthday/holidays. That same uncle had season tickets first row at the Coliseum, so I would always ask for my favorite jerseys.

Favorite Player: Tough to say, as an Isles fans, a lot of players have come and gone. Eric Cairns and Steve Webb were cool. Alexei Yashin was by far the nicest athlete/"famous" person I have met. Kenny Jonsson, Andrew Macdonald, Ziggy Palffy.

Favorite Player to hate: I do hate: Tucker, Domi, Roberts, the whole 2002 Leafs team, Briere, Avery, M-A and Theo Fleury, Richter, Messier.

College Attended/Attending: Hofstra University

Video Game Systems Owned: Super Nintendo, N64, Gamecube, all gameboys, Wii, PS2, and PSP

Favorite Game(s): Star Fox for N64. N64 is my favorite system. NHL 95 was pretty cool too for SNES.

Music You Listen Too: Weezer, The Offspring, Nirvana, Dropkick Murphys, Metallica, AC/DC, Puddle of Mudd, and the list goes on

Favorite Movie (s): The Brady Bunch films, Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder), Step Brothers, Miracle, Beavis and Butthead do America, Youngblood, Talladega Nights, and Mystery, Alaska--the ending was terrible though.

Favorite Food: steak, french fries, chicken (grilled, fried, fingers, parm'd, etc.), pasta with hot sausage, funnel cake, zeppoli, and shoo fly pie

Favorite TV Show: The Big Bang Theory

Anything Else: I got my first gamer on April 6, 2001. It was an "Off the back" jersey of Mats Lindgren. He didn't play for practically the whole season and the Isles forgot to give out his jersey. Cute, little, 8 year old Jeremy overheard the two people talking and when they started walking to the zamboni entrance to find someone to give the jersey to, I noticed it and ran over (fortunately, my dad had first row seats in the zamboni corner, while my uncle had seats on the blue line, and I was sitting with my dad). This was when they had the spaces between the glass. I am a die-hard Isles fan since 1997.
