Back in the early 90's, the road tour was : BOS (the Graden), Philly (The Sloppy Rectum), DC (the old Cap Center!!!) and the occasion igloo. Hell I loved it more than going to the MSG.
It's a damn shame...as a huge hockey fan, we need cities like DC & Pitts, and Boston to flourish in the NHL. I want people to sell out arenas. I don't want hockey to ever go away again.
P.S. At this past Sat's game down here in DC...I was wearing a
"Brashear Is Garbage" T-Shirt
during warmps. (anyone see me???).I planted myself right behind the Caps net and pressed my chest up against the glass for the entire pre-skate. Brashear and Heward shot pucks at my face and gave me nasty looks. But not one fan said a word to me...
Man do I hate Donald!
1) Are others on here right that in the first game, we had a lot more fans?
2) Back in the 90s, did we have a lot of fans in PHI and BOS?
It always seems like we don't have in PHI many fans but do in BOS, was this the case then?
