Where are you from:
Born on Staten Island, lived in Somerville, NJ since 1995. Currently residing in New Brunswick, NJ.
Rangers fan since:
Technically since birth. But I started really watching in 1997.
First Rangers match you attended:
Rangers v. Devils, Fall 1997. Was a bit restless the first time, but I've loved it ever since.
My first favorite was Pat LaFontaine. My second or third time attending a game at MSG they were handing out 8 1/2 by 11 posters of LaFontaine upon arrival, so for some reason he became my first favorite. Loved Richter, Beuekboom, Leetch, Graves from the late 90's-00's. Since the lockout I can't name one so, Hank, Cally, McD, Ortmeyer, Avery, and a few others.
Best Ranger moment:
Got to see the 2012 Winter Classic and game 5 against the Caps last year in person. WC was obviously great with the atmosphere and the way NYR won, but game 5 was surreal.
Former Rangers you miss:
Dubi, Avery, Betts, Artie, Tyutin.
Any non-Rangers you like:
Kopitar, P. Bergeron, Tavares, Toews
Any other sports:
Watch football every Sunday, NY Giants are the team. I like the Yankees and Knicks, but don't really keep up in general MLB and NBA happenings. Like watching the World Cup and Euro tournaments
How did you find HF Boards:
Somebody had linked to it years ago in a blog I used to read. Only checked it once in a blue moon because I thought this was the place for hockey conspiracy theorists
Started readily checking it midway through this year and now I'm on every day.
How do you watch Rangers games:
At home, usually just on my couch with beers. Had to switch to my bedroom at one point because they hit a hot streak upon watching a game there. My father's a STH, so he'll take me to four to six games a year, and we try making the trip to Newark (short train ride) or Long Island (90 min. drive).
