Favorite Bruin moment/How I became a fan: I've been a fan as long as I can remember. My first memory that really sticks out is Bourque getting the All Star MVP in '96. But things tapered a bit in the early 2000's. I stopped playing hockey, the Pats and Red Sox were winning, and the lockout certainly didn't help. I view my fandom in two, very distinct stages. The childhood fandom where I was a casual, and the adulthood fandom where I am a die hard. That truly began with Sturm's GWG in Game 6 against Montreal in the 2008 Quarterfinals.

In person, I've seen a lot in the last two seasons. Savard's 2010 ECSF OT goal was special, but being at Game 7 against Montreal this year, seeing Horton win it has to be tops.

How long I have been a B's fan: See above. Been one all my life. I barely remember Neely, but I watched in the 90's. Truly haven't been a diehard until 2007-2008.

Origin of screen name: I couldn't think of anything clever. 231's my lucky number.
