I took a whiz next to Chico in the old Continental Airlines Arena. That's right, he used the regular people's bathroom. And he obeyed standard urinal rules. No talking, eyes front. No junk peeking. 

 

His color commentary was always enjoyable, I especially enjoyed the last game, where he completely through away any thoughts of him not being a homer and was outright cheering for Marty throughout the game.

I said this in the game day thread. I love his passion for this team. Just another reason we need that Devils ring of fire because Chico deserves to be there.

 

Chico helped to build this team.  He gave this franchise character when it had none and leadership and the few leaders were incessantly traded away.  As CR76 has noted, he was there thru the tough times and helped some of our younger players to grow.  Most of them moved on as well, but many brought us back other assets that became parts of our championship teams, so I don't think it is an overstatement to say that, in his own way, Chico contributed to changing the character of one of the worst sports franchises of its day. 

 

I, for one, will miss you Chico.  You were my favorite Devil growing up and I hated seeing you in a Flyers sweater (although he deserved a little success before he retired) and I'm going to miss you now.  All the best my friend!

I'd need contributors, because I can't think of any other people I have taken a whiz next to.

 

I think Whizzin' With the Stars would have to be the title.

I love Chico and I hated to read some of his quotes.  It will really be hard to match him I think.

Oh man, Chico is a legend.  I loved watching him call games.  He was a homer and goalie apologist but that was part of his charm.

One of my favorite shticks between Doc and Chico is when Chico would make some sort of pro-goalie comment like "Nothing he could have done there, he had no chance on that shot," and Doc would reply with a mocking friendly jab like, "Of course it's not his fault, he's a goalie, most important player on the ice."

going to be weird when the next color guy doesn't ask to see the same replay 4 times and still not be sure of the call.  The story of how he met his wife that he told on hockey night live was hilarious.

This video is a perfect example of Chico at his best (and worst lol). The yell after the goal is the funniest thing to me. Pure excitement and purely hilarious. And then he goes and calls Henrique "Larsson". Definitive Chico.

Well, that's Dano.

Chico blurted it out on Sunday...and then tried to un-ring the bell by saying "whoever it is next season".

 

I mean it wasn't a State secret or anything, but just another way that Chico showed he was the everyman...

Chico was the best, so much fun to listen to, and awesome to meet at the Rock or wherever. I hope he enjoys his retirement :)

Is chico trying to perform a jedi mind trick on Schneider?

another great Chico moment was his laugh after Zajac's goal against Rinne in SO (sigh... a goal in shootouts...)
