Duck Hunting: Call for Old School Stories
by Jay Leask
It’s Duck Hunting season and this is a SERIES now! Starting tonight it’s best-of-three, a task that doesn’t seem so insurmountable after our two-game homestand. What do you think?
In honor of the best-of-three series what are your favorite Duck Hunting stories? The Finish Flash? The Niedermayer Brothers (Brothers Forever, AMIRITE)? JSG? Nintendo’s Duck Hunt? (I’m a fan of my wife’s duck-noose, personally)
So – what’s your story? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your story or if you already have an account on the site post it! We’ll be publishing Duck Hunting stories for the next week.
About Jay Leask: Jay Leask saw his first Dallas Stars game in 2005 – until then he was a wandering fan of Hockey with no guidance or home team. However, his new friends and this “new” team gave him reason to build an allegiance. He quickly became a season seat holder and fell in love with the arena, the organization, and the players. A fondness for hard work and defensive strategy, Jay became a fan of Philip Boucher and Stephan Robidas.
A year later Jay and his friend founded The Dallas Stars Podcast (unaffiliated from the Dallas Stars, though it created relationships that would enable much more) and took on the moniker “The Wall”. Soon thereafter he and his co-host, hoping to cover auditions for the Stars Fanatics for the podcast, became a founding member of the Stars Fanatics and spent three years as the organization’s President before leaving Dallas.
Although he no longer can attend games in person he stays connected through his relationships, and of course Game Center Live.
