My aunt was a big Rangers fan

and she got me watching games when I was 5-6 back in 73-74.

I've been a fan ever since, but it was the game I went to in 1980 or 1981 (the year the Yankees lost to the Dogers in the World Series during that split season BS due to the labor situation) when she introduced me to Fotiu and he gave me a puck that the Die-Hard feelings kicked in.

She's passed away, but I still remember that game and the atmosphere and remember wanting to go back as often as I could.

So, low estimate 26 years for being a diehard fan, 30+ years for being a fan

I now feel old.
