How did you become a fan of your team?
I know I've seen a thread like this before, but it's been a long time and I always find the stories interesting.

As for me, I became a fan of the Ducks because, as a little kid, I thought their jerseys were the coolest. I also liked the movies. The rest is history.

when i got of age to be able to choose a team for myself to follow i harkened back to my very young childhood when my Dad told me about a defenseman who was a captain. i was shocked that a defenseman would even be considered (the only captains i knew at the time were Yzerman, Sakic and Sundin) so Scott Stevens became my favourite player. i was around 11 and made the choice to become a Devils fan. also their logo is red, and thats awesome.

Selanne and the Ducks **** on the Kings at my first hockey game. Puck went out of play. Caught it. Teemu saw me after, signed it.

My dad took me to a game at the Forum when I was 6 (i'm 23 now), and after that I was hooked.

When i was a kid my cousin set me up to play hockey on his sega genesis. I chose to play as the penguins because i liked the mascot. Been a fan ever since.

But now that i live in San Jose i am slowly being pulled toward rooting for the Sharks over the Pens. Mostly because i get to watch alot more sharks games here and everybody else here roots for them, but partially because i've already seen the pens win a cup, but not the sharks.

But i'm still a die hard fan for both teams.

Bruins just cause they are the closest team to my state

My 2nd teams are the Islanders and Ducks, the Islanders I started liking due to the proximity of my school to the Nassau Colliseum, and the Ducks I just always liked the old Mighty Ducks jerseys a lot and really liked Selanne and Kariya back in the day

Played NHL2000 and I saw this guy Simon Gagné on the Flyers.

Blitzburgh87* 06-29-2012 06:56 PM

Lemieux. There was no player like him he was so exciting. But my favorite player of all time is Bobby Orr. I love watching old games With him. Truly the G.O.A.T.

2004 Cup Run

Bruins were my first team because they named the youngest teams by NHL clubs, I was in the "Bruins". I was 5.

Became an Avs fan when I saw my uncle play as them in NHL 97 or something. I guess I liked the jerseys or whatever, my uncle (5 years older than me) liked them so you can be damn sure I liked them too, even if he only played as Avs because they were pretty much the best team in the entire game.

So that's where it began. I'm still an NHL-fan first (actuelly a hockey-fan first), and after that an Avs fan. My one and only true team is my hometown team here in Finland.

Vancouver's logo. And I have some family there.

WasteofTaffe 06-29-2012 07:06 PM

Would have been excommunicated from the family if not a penguins/steelers fan. Cant complain since ive seen 5 championships..

Montreal4Life* 06-29-2012 07:12 PM

My dad was a Nordiques fan.... so around the age of 6 I realised I had to be a Habs fan. Might as well go for the best!!!!! :handclap:

Ozz 06-29-2012 07:14 PM

I started rooting for the Penguins when Crosby was drafted. Just another fanboy who jumped on the bandwagon.

Just playing, I'm a Bruins fan. Born and raised in that area...'twas natural.

Lethargic 06-29-2012 07:30 PM

I pull for the home team.

Carolina is my home.
