TWITTER HANDLE: @devils201
I HAVE BEEN A SEASON TICKET MEMBER FOR: 19 years with my family. I was seven years old when we started attending games, and we’ve been season ticket members for most of the time since.
I HAVE BEEN A DEVILS FAN SINCE: Back in 1988, when the Devils first made the playoffs. We had gotten to know John MacLean a little bit, and seeing him score the goal to send the team to the postseason had me hooked.
BEFORE EVERY DEVILS GAME, I MAKE SURE: I have dinner at the restaurant.
YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW THAT: I used to be a competitive tennis player.
MY FAVORITE CURRENT PLAYER IS: Cory Schneider. He’s a great goalie and a great guy. I met him back when he lived across from my place in Hoboken.
IF I COULD ASK HIM ONE THING: What are your pre-game rituals?
MY FAVORITE MARTY MOMENT IS: When he helped the Devils win the 1995 Stanley Cup. Sweeping Detroit, when everyone thought we were underdogs, was very exciting.
MY FAVORITE PIECE OF DEVILS MEMORABILIA IS: After the team won the Cup in ‘95, the McMullen family gave me a leather Devils Stanley Cup jacket. I had been ill with autoimmune issues, and as family friends they gave me the jacket. I still have it today.
I AM #RELENTLESS BECAUSE: I never give up.
