Important Anniversary

28 posts in this topic

Does anyone still have the link of either Emrick or Mike Miller counting down the last few seconds. I haven't listened to it in a while.

Any stories from that day, anyone's not shared yet?

I think I told all of mine, my favorite was sitting in the Tick Tock diner at whatever time & everytime someone wearing Devils stuff walked in, the whole diner broke out into cheers. :clap:

My story is just getting in the building. I had tix all throught the playoffs in '94, but didn't have the scratch for '95.

Since the Devils sold tickets in groups of eight, 2 series at a time, a lot of Flyer fans bought Devs/Flyers tix expecting the Failures to win, then recoup their $ for the Finals.

Since this was prior e-bay, I put a classified ad in the Philly Enquirer and eventually scored tix to games 4 and 6 and face value (and got my $ back for Game 6).

So for the 4 attempts the Devils had to win the Cup at home, I could only get there for 2 of them.......and I'm 2 for 2!!

Don't have the audio - but I have my ticket stub from game 4 framed! And to think - it was only $60 face value back then...

I was at my Mom's house in Santa Monica. It was late afternoon and I was bracing my self to go nuts. Then as the countdown began...10...9...8...7...then the TV went dead. It was a a bitter sweet day. 2000 was almost as bad but that's for another day.

Heres the video link for the 2003 call on ABC. On the second row of video clips it is called 2003 Stanley Cup call. I really want to hear John Hennessey's call again. I heard it once and it was awesome.

Wheres the link?

I was in Dunedin FL (right outside Tampa Bay) for Game 4. Oddly enough, I was in Portland, OR for Game 1. But that's another story). My (non-hockey lovin') friend looked at me strangely as my eyes began to water. Seeing Johnny Mac lift the Cup above his head was pretty stinkin' special.

I have yet to be in the stands for a Stanley Cup win (was hoping to accomplish that this year, but oh well...), but I'm sure I'll have a few more opportunities! :)
