I just found this site and I am SO GLAD I DID!!
Brian Rolston is the reason I became a Devils fan in the first place. At my first game, my date told me that I had to "pick a player" who I would then follow for the season. My grandfather was a professional soccer player and also played in the 1936 Olympics in Germany. His number had always been 14 and that was my number all through school, playing field hockey, soccer and softball. So Brian is who I chose to follow. Then, a year later, he was traded to the Avs and I was heart broken. Followed him through his trade to the Bruins (made countless trips to Boston for Bruins games - he also ran over my sisters foot when we were standing there outside waiting for autographs.. he drove on by
)then watched him go to the Wild (went out there once and went to ever Devils/Minn game when they came this way). When my cousin called me last year and said Brian was coming back to the Devils, I thought I died and went to heaven!! I *AM* the Brian Rolston fan club in Philadelphia. :-)
I'll be driving over 100 miles and 2 hours to come to this signing. I've never met him but it's not like I never tried. This is like a dream come true.
Oh and Happy early Birthday to Brian!! He celebrates his birthday this month.
