I've been playing along on these threads the last few years, so here's this off-season's model:
Where are you from
New York City - grew up in Harlem in the 70s
Rangers fan since
1973-74 as that's the first season I can remember waching on a 12" b&w on WWOR channel 9.
First Rangers game you attended
Don't remember which was the first one, but I remember going out to the Coliseum a lot when the Isles were in their prime (my dad had some connections out on the Island in those days and we always tried to catch the Rangers games there).
There have been so many over the years...but my first son's middle name is Messier and we are expecting our second, whose middle name will be Richter
Best Ranger moment
Messier's hat trick in game 6 against the Devils - that season I believed that nothing could go wong and just when it looked its darkest...and after that game I knew we were going to win the Cup
Any other sports
I live in England now and really enjoy the rugby.
How do you watch Rangers games
At 5am on my computer the next day as we're 5 hours ahead.
I grew up in the NYC hi-rise projects but now live in the rolling green countryside nestled between an old forest and the ocean. We have wild horses grazing on the banks of the winding river behind our house. You couldn't get much further from New York than where I am now.
