    I know what you mean. When the Eagles lost to Tampa in the NFC Championship in the last game at the Vet, I was going to fly home just to watch the Super Bowl with my dad because I was off that week. Sadly, I never got to do it.

    So... Go Blues! (Yeah, Yeah, I know they're not any good anymore )
    I actually began rooting for the Red Wings cause of all the annoying Blues fans I went to school with at Mizzou.

    This was before the Red Wings were anything like the Yankees. They had gone four decades without winning the Cup!

    They were terrible. When they first acquired Yzerman, they were having to give cars away just to get butts in seats.

    Most of my hockey knowledge eventually came from playing EA's NHL videogames and annoying Blues fans. Federov and Yzerman on the same line was so much fun!

    I did begin to hate the Chicago Blackhawks. I'd spend half the game roaming around with Nicklas Lidström looking to smash Jeremy Roenick's stupid face into the boards.

    ahaha! That's the only way Nick would smash anybody into the boards! Too polite!

    Federov and Yzerman were dynamite. Federov was the first reason I liked the Wings. He was just so calm and calculated, small passive-aggressive smile on his face all the time. I miss the Shanahan, Hull, Federov, Yzerman, Legace days.

I was REALLY freaking out because Steve had just had surgery. I kept shouting, 'Don't hit him! He's got bionic knees, you beasts!"

    My favorite "Blue" was Big Al Macginnis! Mr. Slapshot!
    - I'm a pretty casual "fan" (I use the term loosely), but I did like Al. It was sort of a letdown when he retired, but the strike really hit the Blues hard, and I can see why he felt that it was a good time to call it a career. Back when he was here, I also liked Brendan Shanahan, before he defected to... oh, wait... sigh. I still see folks around here with Shanahan jerseys every now and then. Give me either over Brett Hull (who also eventually defected to... si... oh, wait, I can live with that one )

    Heh - I'm a St. Louis transplant from Idaho (where they didn't really have any hockey when I grew up, believe it or not), so I didn't really get any of the annoying Blues fan treatment from anyone - they're really my only real exposure to live hockey. I was lucky enough to get to go to a game the first year I lived here in the "old arena" - which was quite literally a cow barn (they used to hold cattle sales shows there, back in the... well, a long time ago ). I wound up sitting mostly behind a wooden post, but it was a fun, small-building sort of deal. Other than going to a game once or twice when Mom was in town (she was a big hockey fan when she grew up in Montreal), I don't really get too involved, but I semi-watch them on TV every now and then and watch the standings. The Wings are a bit too successful for me to enjoy rooting for them as an out-of-town team, but at least they're not the Yankees/Red Sox :P.

    I think that I'm finally healed from mental anguish that I endured during last year's playoffs. Let's get it started in here!
