hi everyone,

i just thought i would make my first post here, and introduce myself.

My name is Damian, and everyone calls me Damo.

Im 28 years old, all the way from Melbourne, Australia - yes you read that right!

I got onto the Devils back in 92 - 93, when i went over to a friends place one day and played NHL on his Amiga.
As silly as it sounds, i chose the Devils as back when i was younger, i was a fan of Bon Jovi, and knowing he was from New Jersey, chose the Devils.

The loyal person i am, i have stayed with the Devils ever since, and when the good ol' internet decided to get decent, i managed to start finding and watching games online.

It was great! i could now watch and follow the Devils more enthusiastically!

Ever since then, i have made sure i have watched games, and for the 08-09 season, i am glad to say i did not miss any game! all 82 regular season games, plus the playoffs.

Obviously with being so far away from the USA, getting merchandise is somewhat difficult and expensive, but i have slowly been building my collection of clothing and other gear.

I have made friends with a guy on facebook and we talk about the Devils and also send each other packages, so getting gear is a little easier now.

I bought some gear off of NHL.com recently when they had their 20% off sale.
As much as some people dont think a guy wearing a Parise jersey is any kind of manly, i dont care, i have one on the way and i think he is a fantastic player.
I also have a sweatshirt and cap on the way.
i already have 3 t shirts also and a blank Red CCM jersey.
oh and a digital subscription to The Hockey News!

i have a signed Parise photo, and some hockey trading cards of various devils.

Im always thinking of what new Devils gear i can get, and there are several jerseys i do want also, so i foresee a formidable collection appearing.

I felt the pain of the game 7 loss, as i was watching live over the internet, and felt just the way a lot of you have described on this very forum.
i look forward to 09-10, and hope that through drafting and trades, we will have a formidable team for next season.
i will be watching draft and trades very closely.

I plan on visiting the USA in the next couple of years - the financial crisis around the world is hitting Australia pretty hard, i was hoping to get there next year, but might be another year or two now.
i want to see the Devils play at home, and i will get there for that.

im always happy to chat, and make new friends - especially Devils fans, as its the strongest sport i follow - weird considering i have no ties to Canada/USA or hockey before i got into it.
so feel free to drop me a line. i use MSN and facebook, and always happy to chat!

cheers for reading everyone :)
