TWITTER HANDLE: @Slam_Borghini
I HAVE BEEN A SEASON TICKET MEMBER FOR: Two years
I HAVE BEEN A DEVILS FAN SINCE: Since I was about four years old. The first game I ever went to, oddly enough was Devils/Penguins. My uncle, who is a die-hard fan, took me with two of my cousins. I’ll never forget, Martin Brodeur made save after save, and just seeing the way fans reacted to Brodeur I was hooked. He’s been my favorite athlete ever since.
BEFORE EVERY DEVILS GAME, I MAKE SURE: I always rock my red and black Martin Brodeur jersey, and make sure I wear a Devils hat.
YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW THAT: I’ve been on TV about five times, including when Alex Rodriguez hit his 600th home run. I helped hold up a “600” sign and it made it on SportsCenter. I also was on TV during the Stadium Series at Yankee Stadium, shouting “Let’s Go Devils!” all decked out in front of an NBC camera.
MY FAVORITE CURRENT PLAYER IS: Cory Schneider
IF I COULD ASK HIM ONE THING: I’d ask about his favorite memory from Boston College. My sister attends there now, and when I visited her I saw pictures of him everywhere on campus.
MY FAVORITE MARTY MOMENT IS: It’s tough to choose. As much as it hurts to say, I was here for his last game. It was a surreal moment.
MY FAVORITE PIECE OF DEVILS MEMORABILIA IS: My dad used to be a lawyer for one of the trading card companies, and back in 2000 he got me a blown up picture from Martin Brodeur’s trading card. Last year I was able to meet Brodeur and get it signed.
I AM #RELENTLESS BECAUSE: As the Devils leave everything out on the ice, I leave all of my energy, voice and love for the team in my seat and in the stands.
