#1284356 GDT: Stars. Devils. Thank you, Chico.

Posted by Martyisth3b3st on 24 October 2014 - 11:23 AM

The amount of Chico stories I have, as a young fan, are incredible.

I met him when I was a season ticket holder at prudential center. Always loved him, so one day when we were sitting in the fire lounge for some STH promotion the first season at the rock, I bought him a hot pretzel during the first commercial break. Every game for the rest of the season- every single one- if he passed me in the concourse he would grab me, address me by name, and ask how my day was going.

This one time, I was walking to grab food before the game and saw him walking. I remembered hearing it was Fischler's birthday- so I told Chico to tell him happy birthday from a big fan. He grabbed me around the shoulders and told me to talk with him. We lapped the concourse, picking up fans along the way, until we had a crew of about 15 devils fans. We walked over to some door I'd never seen, I'm assuming an employee entrance, and when Stan walked out we all sang happy birthday.

On my Florida devils trip last year, I saw Chico and Bobby holik eating brunch at the hotel that I was staying. I didn't want to bother them so I just smiled and waved. Chico stood up, called me over, introduced me to Bobby, chico encouraged Bobby to flirt with my girlfriend in a friendly and funny matter. Later that day he saw us walking to the stadium and crossed the street to walk with us.

That night I met Kevin Clarke, who told me that everyone adores Chico but he is CONSTANTLY getting in trouble because he's late to everything because he's always talking with fans and being a goof.

He means more to me than almost anyone in the organization. He will be missed by everyone, but by me especially.

Love you Chico. Thanks for making a young fan feel so important.

I think Larsson explodes as a bonifide top-2 defenseman this season.

It's not a pissing contest but damn if you need to harp on something from two years ago when the rags are about to go to the finals and possibly win while the devils are out playing golf for a month now? Yeah and I'm the insecure one.

I wonder if the rags win the cup if devils fans next year do the "if you know the ranger suck" chant with the "and they'll never win the cup" part in there. I bet anything they will and that's when I truly put my head down in shame as I do not expect better from a good chunk of this fanbase. If you want to talk insecurities, then how about less whining about not being allowed to chant "you suck" to the other team and focusing half the chants at any given devils home game against the idiots who play across the river.

Funny I would have thought the three cup wins since 1994 would have erased that memory but I guess not given how focused this fanbase is on the team across the river.

Every fan base has idiots. Every fan base has pessimist sh!ts. It happened 2 years ago. I don't care if the rangers win this year; that will always be my most incredible hockey moment and the instant it went in I will never forget. I remember Arnott scoring, slightly, and I remember the 03 cup a bit better but for those of us who didn't know what it's like to be fully invested in the sport and see a Cup that moment will give me shivers for the rest of my life.

EDIT: Jumped the gun and didn't see your posts on this page. Fair enough.

#1259798 Stupid ass conference realignment

Posted by Martyisth3b3st on 09 April 2014 - 10:34 PM

:shrugs: maybe it's time to stop pointing the finger at the leagues "stupid" reassignment and "stupid" shootout and "stupid" system and realize that a team that loses to the Islanders, Sabres, and Flames in the final month of the season in do-or-die games does not deserve to compete for the Stanley Cup?

#1257649 I believe in our boys until we are mathematically eliminated

Getting struck by lightning is a realistic POSSIBILITY.
But getting struck by lightning is NOT a realistic EXPECTATION.

Is it realistic to EXPECT the Devils to make the playoffs? No.
Is it realistic for the Devils to POSSIBLY make the playoffs? Yes.

I dunno man, the more you keep talking, the more I get excited about the POSSIBILITY of you getting struck by lightning.

My range (most bearable to least):

Sterio >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> MBrown >>>>>>> Par99 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> SatansDevils

Oh my GOD SatansDevils, that's someone I forgot about. Mike Brown is so much like SD except I'm pretty sure SD had a slight mental issue or something, or English wasn't his first language?
