I turn 18 next month so I never saw the Cup years in 91 and 92 (though I was alive for the 92 one). But growing up, my dad would always tell me these stories of Mario Lemieux and how good he was. I saw games of him on TV whenever they were showed and it blew my mind.

Then when he came back in 2001 (2000? forget the year), it was a special moment for me. The man who I've been hearing about for so many years and now to finally see was an awesome sports moment for me. When he scored that first goal against Toronto and Gary Thorne exclaimed, "MARIO! WELCOME BACK!"...good times.

So happy birthday to Mario and thank you for EVERYTHING that you have done for this franchise!
