The Aberdeen Truckers are
based on my Father, Dean Vittetoe. For
all of my life and many years before, my dad’s profession has been a truck
driver. The primary logo is based on a
Peterbilt, the manufacturer of his preferred rig. As a kid, I would often go out on the road
with him, driving all over the country.
My love of travel developed as a result.
Sports and travel have played large roles in our bonding time. He took me to my first sporting event, a St.
Louis Cardinals game in 1993, and my first NHL game with the St. Louis Blues in
1997. We have been to several different
games since then and I have enjoyed them all.
No matter where our conversations start, they always end up discussing
the world of sports. The number 30 is
for my dad’s age when I was born.
