First, thank you. I had always read it was for wins. Second, that sounds like an amazing DVD!!
I have a few DVDs of Rockies games, but home ones are hard to come by...that's the only home Rockies game I have...it was from an ESPN feed. I have two more from Toronto (one win, one loss...one of them has Hardy Astrom starting, and he is every bit as bad as you may have heard), and another from LA (that one is brutal...a 10-3 loss...they were losing 2-0 before the game was even a minute old). Kind of cool seeing Marcel Dionne in his prime though, and the purple-and-yellow Kings jerseys. Also have the Rockies' (and franchise's) very first playoff game, a 3-2 OT loss to the Flyers in the Spectrum. I think the Flyers came out pissed knowing that a team that won 19 games had somehow taken them to overtime...they ended the game in less than a minute. Rockies' goalie Doug Favell played his ass off...think he made 42 saves.
What's great about Rockies-Blues DVD:
1) A lot of helmetless players. And a lot of mustaches and poofy Ron Duguay-type hairstyles. Kind of hard to believe people actually wanted to look like that on purpose.
2) A pretty good John Wensick fight (forget who he fought against at the moment). I think Brent Ashton got into it with someone too.
3) Rockies whupped ass, which they pretty much never did (they won all of 18 games that season). Bobby MacMillan scored four goals. A line of Merlin Malinowski (who was playing himself into the doghouse after a breakout 1980-81 campaign...he'd be out of the league after the end of the 82-83 season), Don Lever, and MacMillan had a big day, tallying five of the Rockies' seven goals (Steve Tambellini and Brent Ashton scored the others). Most of the hats thrown on the ice after MacMillan scored his third goal were cowboy hats.
4) Great in-between-periods interview with Chico (he was suffering though his first full season with the Rockies, after having been dealt from the Islanders at the deadline the year before). Really came off as stand-up and positive, though you could tell the constant losing was killing him. He was asked about all of the rumors swirling about the Rockies' possible impending move (no one was sure where they were going to end up), and basically said it was on the players to not let it become a distraction, that no one was going to feel sorry for them.
5) And of course, was great to hear R&R Part 2 being used as a goal song way before everyone else.
Do you have any DVDs of any Devils games from the early/mid-Eighties?
I went to a bunch of games during the Devils first few seasons in New Jersey, but I can't remember if they even had a goal song back then.
The earliest Devils goal w/song included I found on YouTube is one from the 1991 playoffs in which they played RR Part 2.
I have the infamous Mickey Mouse game, but I'm not going to lie...I haven't watched it yet, because I can't bring myself to watch it. I know it's from a different era, but the idea of watching a team score 13 goals on the Devils...
