HOMETOWN: New Providence
CAREER: I own a construction company.
TWITTER HANDLE: @skipetenj
I HAVE BEEN A SEASON TICKET MEMBER FOR: 19 years, since the 1996-97 season.
I HAVE BEEN A DEVILS FAN SINCE: The team came to New Jersey in 1982. I worked on the construction of Brendan Byrne Arena, and part of the draw was the hype of basketball and hockey. My earliest memory of the team was watching them in their “Christmas tree” uniforms. I loved them.
BEFORE EVERY DEVILS GAME, I MAKE SURE: I’m always in the restaurant at 5:15 p.m. and always at the same table, #29. I also usually wear my Ken Daneyko jersey, but I switched it up today with my Scott Stevens sweater.
YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW THAT: I have the only 3-foot-tall, signed, Martin Brodeur bobblehead in the world. They had a series of about 50 special bobbleheads at the team store, and I’m the only one who got his signed. I confirmed it with Marty when he was here for his jersey retirement announcement. I got it signed at a signing event here.
MY FAVORITE CURRENT PLAYER IS: Andy Greene
IF I COULD ASK HIM ONE THING: How do you psych yourself up, game in and game out, to play hard hockey?
MY FAVORITE MARTY MOMENT IS: When he hit 552 wins and cut down the net. That was great. The crowd was just totally beyond belief.
MY FAVORITE PIECE OF DEVILS MEMORABILIA IS: Definitely the bobblehead, no question.
MY FAVORITE PART OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON: Meeting up with friends and celebrating. It’s nice to get together with friends I don’t see often.
I AM #RELENTLESS BECAUSE: I come to every game and root the team on, win or lose, because they are my Devils.
