I’m Kim, although I’ve started to answer to the name Carolina because of this blog, so feel free to call me whatever you want.
I’m a 30-something woman living in the North of England. I’m married to a long-suffering hockey widower, and have a teenage daughter who is horrified at the fact I keep talking about boys that are only a couple of years older than her.
I’m a Sheffield Steelers fan in the EIHL and a Carolina Hurricanes fan in the NHL, although I have a soft spot for a number of teams, including the Colorado Avalanche, the Dallas Stars and the Chicago Blackhawks. The latter is about 99% Patrick Kane’s fault.
I follow Team GB at all levels and have a burgeoning interest in women’s hockey and sledge hockey, which has only increased since talking to some of the players online. I have no favourite teams as yet (although the Kingston Kestrels are working their way into my heart), but I’m sure that’s only a matter of time.
If you care about these things, I’m also a Carolina Panthers fan in the NFL, and I’m a non-skating official for the Wakey Wheeled Cats Roller Derby League, which is possibly the second greatest sport after hockey.
If you want to chat, I’m on Twitter @CarolinaKaniac or you can email me CarolinaKaniac@gmail.com. I also tend to post pictures, gifs and links on my Tumblr account. I make no apologies for the cheesiness of my usernames.
