I HAVE BEEN A SEASON TICKET MEMBER FOR: 4 Seasons
I HAVE BEEN A DEVILS FAN SINCE: The 1980s. I used to work at a rink when I was a kid through when I was in high school, and we used to stay late, playing games till the early morning. After New Jersey got a team, I was hooked. At my first game, as a senior in high school, I saw the Devils host the Quebec Nordiques, which is now the Colorado Avalanche.
BEFORE EVERY DEVILS GAME, I MAKE SURE: It depends on whether it’s a home game or away. When I’m at home, I’m always wearing my Ken Daneyko jersey. It’s a classic red and green one.
YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW THAT: I’m a big Depeche Mode fan.
MY FAVORITE CURRENT PLAYER IS: Patrik Elias
IF I COULD ASK HIM ONE THING: I’d ask him if his goal is to eventually retire as a New Jersey Devil.
MY FAVORITE MARTY MOMENT IS: I took my son with me to watch Martin Brodeur’s last game here, as I was trying to get him interested in hockey. My son was selected to ride the Zamboni during the second intermission, so you could say I saw my son clean the ice during Brodeur’s final game with the Devils. Outside of that, it’d have to be the 1995 Stanley Cup Championship, which was unbelievable.
MY FAVORITE PIECE OF DEVILS MEMORABILIA IS: My first jersey. My wife bought me a red and black Martin Brodeur jersey for my 30th birthday. I got a 30 jersey on my 30th birthday.
I AM #RELENTLESS BECAUSE: I’m with this team through the ups and downs, and no matter what happens, I’ll always be a Devils fan.
