Damn straight. No place I'd rather be, no place I'd rather be from.

When I go out of state, I proudly tell people I'm from New Jersey. And if they give me a look, I tell them to go fvck themselves, because I'm from New Jersey.


Absolutely. Usually, the most annyoing comment I'll get is from a Texan asking me to say something because of my "acccent."

That's cool, I'd tell them about how we whacked Dallas in the Cup Finals in 2000. :P

I'm cool with the NHL channel honestly. I get it in HD down by Cherry Hill and I DON'T get MSG. So this works out great for me :)

People hate NJ.
It's as simple as that.
To those of you that are from New Jersey, have you ever gone somewhere and actually said you were from NJ?
People look at you like you're a piece of crap and compare you to the show Jersey Shore. We're known as the 'worst place' in America.
It's not a coincidence our football team isn't called the New Jersey Giants.


I'm proud of the state I was born and raised in, E Rutherford for 38 yrs I moved to Florida 7 yrs ago and will be moving back next year. Jersey Strong, fvck the rest.

Who the fvck cares, to be honest? I like flying under the radar. That's what this franchise is all about.

Yup. We'll be facing the Rags or the winner of Pens/Flyers most likely, so we will definitely get some attention then.

The coverage is something to complain about, but I do understand that this isn't a favorable matchup to a national audience.

That should be the post of the day.

I do *exactly* the same

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

We have crappy attendance. The rest of the country doesn't have much of an interest in us even when on the national spotlight, as evidenced by ratings. We're crowded out by the Rangers and to a lesser extent Flyers.

Seriously, if you were the league, would you feature a series between the Devils and Panthers?

But really, does it matter at all? Devils playoff games could be on Travel Channel Plus. So long as we're holding the Cup at the end of the year that's all that matters.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

Why would anyone expect other people to care whether or not NJ is in a series in the first place? Do we care who Phoenix is playing??? And PS: I never encounter probles with telling people I'm from NJ. They always seem interested. They're blown away when I tell them about the wine country and ski resorts and the fantastic beaches. Maybe because I'm older.


No, it's not because you're older. I'm only 26 and I usually testify to the beauty of NJ in the beginning of any conversation I have with someone who is not familiar. Believe me, it can be a little daunting to break the stereotype and I actually may be counterproductive by doing so. Because, honestly, I don't want any more people moving here!

I proudly wear Devils gear and say I'm from NJ when I travel.. In Europe this summer I had several people recognize the Devils logo on my hat.. One dude in Iceland had a Brodeur card he said he keeps in his wallet

I'd have to believe we are big in Sweden with so many Swedes old and young

All in all I'm hoping the Devils go far, but I think it would be hilarious to see the NHL try and market a Nashville/Florida SCF.

Don't know if any of you guys are in / were previously in the military... but it seems whenever you meet somebody new in this career the second person out of someone's mouth after learning your name is "where are you from?" Here's an actual conversation I had with a new guy on my ship:

F'n New Guy: "So where are you from?"
Me: "I'm from Jersey... Jersey Shore to be exact."
FNG: "Naw, you don't seem like you're that type."
Me: Posted Image

Have to explain it to people every single time... the locals are NOT like what is seen on TV!! Other than that though, always rocking Devils T's, snapback hats, jerseys around the island... if I'm not in uniform I'm in Devils swag. It's funny the looks you get when you wear a Brodeur jersey to the bars downtown in Key West. Actually had a Wings fan come up to me once and say, "Heyyyyyyyy, Stefan Brodeur!!" ... once again, me: Posted Image

So it's always a constant battle but one I gladly wage. Jersey proud. You can take the man out of Jersey, but you can't take the Jersey out of the man!

Oy, do I get that one. One of my best friends always laughs when I go to Starbucks with her, because I apparently say "caw-fee" and "chaw-colate."

I then proceed to make fun of her for being from fvcking Florida. I'm not talking to her for the next couple of weeks even though she doesn't care about hockey :P
