The Rampage are pleased to announce FAN-tastic Friday for all of our fans who “Like” us on Facebook. Each Friday throughout the offseason, we will pick one fan to highlight on both Facebook and sarampage.com. Fans will be playing for fabulous Rampage prizes each week and will be entered into a Fan Playoff bracket. Once 20 fans have been highlighted, we will begin Fan Playoffs in which all Rampage fans will vote on the match ups through Facebook. One lucky fan will be voted as the most FAN-tastic and will win a team autographed stick.
This week’s FAN-tastic Friday winner is Nathan Mallett!
Learn why Nathan is this week’s winner in his Q&A with sarampage.com:
How long have you been a Rampage fan? How did you find out about the Rampage?
I have been a fan since the 2006-07 season and have been a Season Ticket holder since the 2007-08 season. I met my now wife in September of 2006. One of our first dates was going to the Rampage home opener. Being from Michigan, I was already a huge hockey fan. I was instantly hooked and after going to 10-15 games that season and we got season tickets that summer.
What is your favorite thing about going to Rampage games?
Watching the greatest sport on earth- The skill, the speed, the grace and the passion all wrapped into a 2.5 hour experience.
Who is your favorite player? Why?
My favorite player of all time is Dylan Reese. Dylan was a smart and talented defenseman who really made the most out of his skills. Was also very personable off the ice and was always willing to take the time to chat with the fans. From the 2010-11 season, my favorite player is Mikkel Boedker. His raw skill is just a beautiful thing to watch. He went from my doghouse in 2009 to being one of my favorite hockey players anywhere last year.
What is your best memory from the 2010-11 season?
The first 3 months- Watching the team become one of the best teams in the league through December. They played as a team and seemed to really enjoy winning. Also seeing the huge crowds every weekend really brought a smile to my face.
What are you most looking forward to in the 2011-12 season?
I just look forward to another exciting season of hockey and, hopefully, more big and rowdy crowds. I would really like to see more San Antonians embrace hockey. I also look forward to continuing my Rampage fan blog which I started last season.
