Brad, myself, and Loui

Howdy (Isn’t that how everyone thinks texans speak?)


Since this is the start of Blackoutdallas, I guess I should introduce myself. My name is Austin, yes a very Texan name. I have been a huge Dallas Stars fan since about ’96 and have many memories of Dallas Stars hockey. One of my favorite ones is staying up late the summer of 99 listening to the playoff games as they went in to OT after OT, and yelling out loud in celebration when Brett Hull scored to give the Stars the Stanley Cup. I was quickly in trouble for waking up half my household in the middle of the night. I have since watched and listened to too many Stars games to remember. I had season tickets the last 2 years with the “Fanatics” and look forward to becoming a season ticket holder again next year when I can afford it.

Quick Stars Facts about me:

favorite player: Mike Modano

favorite team to hate: Red Wings or Ducks

favorite young-gun: James Neal

Most-hated person within Dallas Stars hockey: Tom Hicks

First I would like to thank Fansided.com for the opportunity, and Zach & Jeff for setting it up and helping. I hope to not only overview games and give you the things you can read everywhere, but also a different view and a different voice and opinion on the Dallas Stars and their place in Dallas sports.

Can we still be friends later?

You can also fin me on twitter at twitter.com/blackoutdallas

I hope we can all be friends, except Red Wings fans.

Thanks,
Austin W
