My birthday too! Happy birthday to us. Too bad none of Mario's skills rubbed off on me...

Favorite Mario memories: being at all those games where he'd take over in the 90s. I remember him scoring 5 goals 2 assists against Wayne Gretzky on the Blues, I think in 96, being at that game and just knowing he was the greatest. I was there for his last pre-retirement game at the Igloo, there for when his jersey went up to the rafters the first time, there when it came back down again... there for his last point ever scored with a sad Pittsburgh squad. Man, I still want to see 66 back out on the ice, I'll hold onto the dream till he's dead.
