Rebecca Dobrinski is a graduate student in UAB's Department of History and Anthropology but she certainly isn't the prototypical ashen-faced scholar cloistered in some stuffy library hunched over musty volumes. She is, in fact, a devoted Predators season ticket holder who plies the 200 miles or so from Birmingham whenever the lights go on in Smashville. She will present her study of hockey history in Music City at the annual conference of the North American Society for Sport History this month.
Meantime UAB Magazine has profiled Rebecca in its current issue.Conveniently, UAB Magazine has provided a picture of Rebecca for those readers of On the Forecheck who communicated with her last year for her study.
Whether or not it's appropriate for Rebecca to wear Shea Weber's sweater when she presents her paper, Preds fans wish her all the best!
