NHL -WHL fan since 1951 - Blues fan since 1967. - No NHL team in Winnipeg when I grew up. Hated Canadiens & Leafs. Visited family in Chicago every year, so became Hawk fan. Also, family friend (and ex-neighbour), Ab McDonald played for Hawks. Also liked Glenn Hall. When Hawks let Hall be drafted by Blues-started liking Blues. Then, in 1968, Ab McDonald was traded to Blues. Became Blues fan for life. Liked Jets, too (but, sadly, they are gone now). I've followed Blues their whole existence. Waiting for them to win The Stanley Cup. Hope it will be in next 3-4 years.

First Blues game-1967 Chicago Stadium
Blues' moment-Red Berenson's six goal game vs. Flyers in 1968-69
