Little better version of my story. I was going to college in Pittsburgh in 2007, and with my college ID, a ticket was only $20...but it was standing room only. It was also 'crosby bobble head night'. So after the first period, I decide I was sick of standing and I somehow bartered my bobble head to an usherfor a seat. He put me center ice, ten rows up in the season ticket holder section. Suffice to say people were not happy. The stadium kept putting devil fan pics on the jumbotron thing saying 'boo this man until he takes off his jersey' suffice to say I did not, and we were already leading 4-0 so the pens fans were already super pissy. Anyways after the second period, I was invited to a box with 4 other devils fans. The person who invited us was none other than Kevin Smith, who, despite me being underage provided me with several gin and tonics. Devils won and I had a number of Pitt fans follow me home on the T threatening to kill me blah blah blah. Best first devils game ever.
I know its playoffs time and emotions are high on all ends of the spectrum. But some of these threads are getting out of hand!
Some of you complain more than my ex-fiance, and some of you may be in some denial. WHO CARES!? We are all on the same side! I think its important to remember who we are. We are Devils fans. We all bleed red!
Us Devils fans don't have the luxury of being a "jump on the bandwagon" team. The Devils only have room for the loyal, serious, hockey fans. I see that in all of you who post on this board. Opinions will differ within the community, but one thing we cannot do is tear ourselves apart from the inside. Some of you are clearly more knowledgeable than others, and some of you are even new to the sport itself. Do not discourage the noobies, instead help them grow!
FOR THE LOVE OF THE DEVILS, DUDES, STOP THIS MADNESS!
