My brother was always a huge Rangers fan since he was a little kid and was 12 when I was born in 92. I was always really close with him, so he was the one that got me into the Rangers. I just remember being a fan. I really can't say when I started. I was a fan as long as I remembered. When I was four or five was when I went to my first game. I'd say I was a fan since birth.
When I moved from New York, it was hard to follow them being so young (moved to Wilmington, DE in 98). But I always relied on ESPN and the newspaper. I was a big fan then. Then I moved to Tampa in 99. During the dark times, I'd still always be that kid going to see the Rangers with my Mark Messier jersey or my Lady Liberty.
Then in 05, I just became a wacky-psycho Ranger even more because we finally had a nice computer with broadband with no restrictions from the mom, so my access to the team was without limit.
I was a big fan pre-lockout. Post-lockout, I became an animal Rangers fan.
