The Captain -Brian Kates


I live in Oklahoma where they don't know the "difference between a blue line & a clothes line". I moved here from Hockeytown about 6 years ago and what a culture shock. I can't watch my favorite sports team hardly at all.

During the off-season, I usually watch movies like "Miracle", "Mystery, Alaska" or the "2002 or 2008 Red Wing Stanley Cup Highlights" video. I am an avid photographer & Red Wing fan. I hope that we can have some interesting discussions on The Red Wings, Michigan Football & The Detroit Tigers. I will also write about , the Tulsa's Oilers (Central Hockey League) and Talons (af2 Arena Football)

My writing influence must be Mitch Albom whose column appears in the Detroit Free Press, amongst others. I would always read his articles because he had a unique spin on sporting events. He's also one of my favo(u)rite authors. Eh, I was born in Toronto, Canada, I'm allowed! My other favorite sports guy is Van Earl Wright and his "We've got highlights" slogan.

You can contact me at; just put "Bleacher Report" or "BR" in the subject line....and..............

    Please take a look at my latest article documenting Tim Thomas' rise from nothing to become one of the NHL's premier goaltenders when you get a free moment.
