The guy who does the Baumann chant in 233 is terrible at it.  Can barely hear him.

 

As for the 1 or 2 guys who do it in the Diablos, someone needs to tell them that its 1 time per game max.  Hearing it 1-3 times per period takes the novelty of it away.

 

OMG Yes!

I see him once in a while at the games.  He sits near section 21 or 22 when he does show up.  He was there for a decent number of games towards the end of the 11-12 season and did the chant every time he was there.


OMG Yes!

 

Believe it or not them doing it more than once a game pisses me off more than the YS chant and vuvuzela's combined.  That chant is a real tradition and they are slaughtering it.

There should only be one true Bauman's chant per game where the whole arena does it.  Fans in select sections shouldn't be starting it where only a 3rd of the arena participates.

 

I remember in 2012 during the Final in game 1, they gave a fan a microphone and put him on the jumbotron to start it.  It would be cool if they did that all the time and let a select random fan get the honors for each game.

Vuvuzelas suck so bad it's not even funny. It's like back in high school when someone would find it hilarious to have an airhorn during a pep rally in the school gym. Except that person was an a$$hole and it's not high school anymore. Loud noises for the sake of loud noises are not cool. Or maybe it's like when everyone learned to play the recorder in middle school. Either way it's loud and annoying and I think this is a spot where most fans agree.

And yeah, only 1 Baumann chant per game. Whenever it happens more than once, the subsequent attempts get lamer and lamer. Like the Rangers Suck whistle. First time it happens, it's loud, then it's quieter each time after. Unless we're playing the Rags.

This x 10000000000000

 

I don't find use of these things clever, witty, or an enhancement of the game experience in the slightest.  I find them annoying as hell, and I REALLY hope they don't become a permanent part of the festivities.  I'm not a big fan of the "Kill" chant either (no reason in particular, just not a fan), but I'll very happily take the "Kill" chant by itself over the Kill chant being punctuated by the vulva-zelas.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

0-1 for me...took my daughter to the 1-0 Flyer loss.  Kinda sucked having to explain that it's really exciting to see a Devils goal, when it actually happens.

 

Almost took her again last night, but she's only 5 and it was a school night.  Might take her again this Friday...she's been to three games so far:  a 2-1 win over Dallas during the 10-11 season (she barely remembers it), the 5-2 retro jersey loss against the Pens, and the 1-0 Flyer loss.  I really want her to see some wins, and soon, before she wonders what the hell Daddy's thinking, trying to turn her into a Devils fan.

LOL, I wasn't sure if you were kidding or not. Baumann's a legend ... or, in the least, an institution.

You know I thought I saw you at the Flyers game but you were with a kid who could walk and was like 2.5 feet tall so, not wanting to feel old (because I remember when your wife was just expecting) I guess my brain was like "nope if it was him his daughter would be a baby still in his arms"... Ok damn now I feel old

i use to have tix in 230 back at the CAA. He use to sit in row 2 or something of that section and would always do the chants. One night, he had a giant bag of M&Ms and was giving it out to fans. He came up to me ( i was maybe 11?) and said "hey, you look like you could use some sugar" and poured me a handful.  Good times at the old barn.

Last time I saw him was late in the 2011-12 season. I think he was with friends and using their tickets. I saw him at about 3-5 games in his usual white custom jersey.

My dad and I used to talk to him here and there back in the day at CAA. Nice dude and I think he was an electrician or some sort of contractor from bound brook. I've heard different stories about why he never really followed the team over from CAA to the rock and not sure what to believe.

My best memory of him was him falling on his ass on the ice when he was allowed on there during the 95 banner raising ceremony.
