Well Panther fans, we’re still locked out. That stinks, I know. However, I’m happy to introduce myself as the newest Staff Writer here for “The Rat Trick”. In this article, I plan to let you all get to know me a bit better. After that, I’ll dive into the good stuff. Hope you all enjoy!
To begin, my name is Lauren Burg and I’m a hockey fan born and raised in the sunny state of Florida. I didn’t become a hockey fan though until 2004, 20 years into my life. Yes, that might seem weird to some but I blame the fact I was raised in a family full of football and baseball fans (Hey, it IS Florida! We’re not often known for our hockey!). To tell the honest truth, my boyfriend back in college got me into hockey AND took me to my first game. It was amazing and afterwards I was hooked. I’m a Tampa Bay Lightning fan first and foremost but love and fully support the Florida Panthers as well.
My favorite Panthers player is Sean Bergenheim (yes, a former Bolt, I know) but they’re all really cool guys! I also met and have pictures with some Panthers, including head coach Kevin Dineen, from last February when they were in Tampa. If you’d like to see those please feel free to friend me on Facebook!
Here on TRT I’m excited to share my Panthers knowledge with all of you rabid Panther fans. I’ll also try and keep you up-to-date on any Panthers news from overseas, at least until this lockout ends, along with San Antonio Rampage and Florida Everblades news. I also cover hockey news for both “Daily Shootout” and “110 Sportz Talk” so feel free to check out those articles as well.
