University Years and GHL
Groom went to the University of Blueville the same year he graduated, when he was 17. He took a bachelor of Education, minor in Law, and a PhD in Politics, he challenged the law minor, and the PhD and was certified in 3 years. His original plan was to become Social Studies teacher. Groom also took a liking to hockey in university and was one of the top players on the university team, he was taken away from his original plan when he was drafted by the Northarm Tornadoes, in the GHL's last draft. As the leauge moved to a more compressed fromat, having bi-monthly seasons, with shorter games and no draft. He played 16 seasons (totalling 1 year and 4 months) until he was injured.
The back injury he sustained playing hockey ended his career, it wasn't a crippliing injury but an injury that would easily be re injured if he were to play again. The money he amassed from his hockey career wasn't much due to the condensed seasons, and therefore salaries, he made about 5 million total. And invested it all after he learned his career was over. In 2001 he ran in a by-election as a member of the Blue Party (hired by Mark Mann) for Downtown Blueville riding, after the current MP died in a car accident. Groom won the riding and retained it when the Blue Party was sent to oppose Peter Fortune. Groom ran for leadership after being the interim leader Mann resigned. Groom became the leader of the party. After current president Peter Fortune was uncovered as a prolific serial killer, an election was called and Groom took the golden opprotunity and won a majority in 2006, and has been re-elected to 3 minorities since.
He is openly gay, and is currently umarried. Groom owns 5 homes (but no mansions) 3 in towns surrounding Blueville. The other two being in Quicksilver, and on Cornell Island. Loves animals and has 2 dogs, pug and golden retriever and 2 cats long hair tortoise shell, and short hair grey tabby. All of which have been seen with him frequently on television.
