El Diablo Posted October 7, 2005 Share Posted October 7, 2005 I've been thinking about this subject for a while and how interesting it would be to find out from people in/out of state and around the world what made them become Devils fans. I saw a post by mddevsfan today and that has me starting this thread. For me it was a rocky beginning, I was an Islanders follower -geez I how I could I root for the Rags? and then when a new team moved to town, I gave them a chance (but what funny uniforms !) That game I got a free ticket and they gave away the large #1 foam hand and 19,040 fans started pointing it at the ref screaming "A$$hole... A$$hole" kind of sealed the deal for me. So many games - I took Mrs Diablo to her first hockey experience during a Rags/Devs playoff game - she was utterly frightened (of me mostly) Then there was 1994 and such bitterness...... but 1995... 1995 such joy... The years rolled and I was able to bring my daugthter to her first game -- to see the happiness when she started dancing 'cause "womp there it is" played and the horn blared... and yes they scored 7 that night... priceless. That pretty much tells my story, Im sure there are lots interesting ones out there, close and afar. Lets Go Devils ! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
