Favorite Av moment: I was at the playoff game against the Sharks in 2010 where Andy had the 51 saves shutout and O'Reilly scored that fluke goal in OT to win it. Crowd chanting Andy so loud, it was hands down my favorite Avs moment because I was there and it was the most pumped fan environment I've ever been in.

I guess I'd introduce myself before I started posting. I've been reading these threads religiously for the past couple years and it's really nice to know there are so many people that are passionate about this team. It's also been a place of comfort for me when we get wrecked on what seems to be a nightly basis now. But its ok, Avs are love, Avs are life.

May as well post since I have been an on and off poster for a few years now.

Status: Involved. It's confusing. Met my girlfriend in Italy and we have been dealing with the distance and saving up for that final move.
Occupation: Mechanical Drafter. Going back to school in fall for History.
Favorite Music Artist: Too many to choose. Fan of everything from Amon Amarth and Myrath (metal) to Drum and Bass and Dreamwave. Love me some trance as well.
Favorite TV show: Community, Parks and Rec, Flash, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Anything geeky I guess?

Not a lot of opportunities even now as an adult in the area I live.

Since then I Avs fan!

Name: Kathleen
Gender: Female
Age: 31
Occupation: librarian
Favoite Music Artist(s): reggae, R&B, Motown, a little bit of everything else
Favorite TV show: X-Files
Favorite Book(s) or Author(s): I like all genres of books
Favorite Av: I have several including EJ, Landy, and Varly. The newest is Mikko. But really, I appreciate them all for various reasons (including the "scrubs").
Favorite Ex-Av: Patty
Favorite non-Av: I don't really go there mentally...maybe Kris Letang
Next or other favorite team: I put up with the Pittsburgh Penguins, but only because my husband is from the Pittsburgh area and we have agreed to support each other's teams in the interest of harmony.
How else is hockey in your life?: I don't play; I am too busy watching hockey plus all my other interests.
Favorite Av moment: What always strikes me is when the Avs first came to Colorado; I distinctly remember how impressed and awed I was by Patrick Roy and the intensity of his blue eyes as well as the equipment, the likes of which I had never seen before. I don't think I ever knew what he actually looked like without the mask until several years later. My family is from New Mexico, and hockey was truly an unfamiliar sport, so Patrick Roy is my first real memory of the sport as well as the Avs!
How and when did you become an Av fan?: I really began to understand the sport in 2007, but did not specifically pay close attention to the Avs until early 2013. I have to admit that the Ryan 0'Reilly drama plus Jiggy calling the team out was a real attention-grabber that season. The Patrick Roy hire really pulled me in completely without me even realizing it until I had subscribed to Center Ice for the following season. I have been reading all of your comments since 2013. It's been an interesting read for sure!

How else is hockey in your life?: I've never played hockey (gasp!)
Favorite Av moment: Being at McNichols for game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals and watching the game on the Jumbotron with my brother and a friend. When Krupp finally scored to settle the incredible goalie battle the place went bonkers! We were seen on TV in the crowd when the Avs won that game and the Cup. I watch clips of that win often on Youtube and always feel fortunate I was able to be with thousands of Avs fans when we won the Cup, even if the team won it in Florida. I traveled to Denver from California where I was living in hopes that I could attend a game, and while I wasn't able to see the Avs play at McNichols during the finals, it was incredibly awesome seeing them win it live.
How and when did you become an Av fan?: When it was announced that the Nordiques were moving to Denver I became a fan instantly.

Same here. "We'll eat after the game" has gone down in infamy in my circles.

Yeah I have to be honest I don't remember all that much from that night, but I think I remembering being pissed off when the concessions stopped flowing sometime during the night.

Location: Boone, NC. Grew up in Littleton, CO, moved out there in 1988 when I was 12 because my dad moved our family out there for his job. Moved from Atlanta, GA.
Occupation: Barista
Favorite Music Will listen to damn near anything except for country. Like Jam bands the most.
Favorite TV show: The Wire right now, Breaking bad before. I don't watch many TV shows, though.
Favorite Book(s) or Author(s): Don't really read that much anymore, but just finished Game of Thrones. Probably the best "fantasy" series I have ever read and I read a bunch when I was younger.
Favorite Av: Beauchemin
Favorite Ex-Av: Forsberg

Next or other favorite team: none
How else is hockey in your life?: I have carpel tunnel syndrome from typing so much on this forum.
How and when did you become an Av fan?: When it was announced that the Nordiques were moving to Denver I became a fan instantly. My dad had season tickets to the Flame's games in Atlanta for some reason and I grew up as a fan of hockey. I remember liking the Denver Grizzlies for a little bit before the Av's too. My brother played it growing up until he when to high school too, so I went to see him play a lot.
Favorite Avs moment: When we won the triple overtime game against Chicago in 1996 and how grueling that series was. I have no idea why, but I remember that moment more than others for some reason.

Name: Scott
Gender: Male
Age: 31
Location: Boulder
Occupation: Supervisor at a Hardware Store
Favoite Music Artist(s): Iron Maiden, Blind Guardian, Kamelot, Insomnium, Nightwish. Heavy Metal Forever!
Favorite Book(s) or Author(s): Favorite series are Stephen King's "The Dark Tower", plus the Harry Potter series and The Dresden Files.
Other Hobbies: Stand-up comedy, although I am currently on a bit of a hiatus from performing.
Favorite Av: Probably MacKinnon, he's the offensive engine of this team, I can't wait to see him take it to the next level. I also really love cheering for Grigorenko.
Favorite Ex-Av: Patrick Roy. Without Roy, I don't believe this team would ever have won a cup.
Favorite non-Av: Alex Ovechkin, one of the deadliest shooters in the history of the NHL.
Next or other favorite team: I like Chicago a lot, and respect what they've been able to do over the dynasty era.
How else is hockey in your life?: Used to play in a local in-line hockey league in high school. Played defense, but wanted goalie. We had a beast goalie on our team though so I only ever got to play if he was sick and during practice. I miss it, but the investment in equipment is too much for me to handle right now.
Favorite Av moment: Uwe Krupp's triple OT goal to win the Cup in '96. The shock of the marathon game ending with a single shot was breathtaking.
How and when did you become an Av fan?: I was 10 when the Avs moved into town, and watched a lot of those games with my dad. I instantly fell in love and wanted to do that myself. I kind of fell out of watching for a few years after Sakic, Forsberg, and Roy retired, and then came back into the fold for the miracle season.

Occupation: Management at Human Services Firm
Favorite Music Artist: Tool (rock) Sage Francis (hip-hop)
Favorite TV Show: Arrested Development
Favorite Author: Vonnegut

How else is hockey in your life?: I play beer league, and any pond or sticks in games I can. Hockey=Life.
Favorite Av moment:: From when they became a team to the the lockout. We were so good, winning two cups, and being in the conversation every year. The team was incredible, and so fun to watch.

Guess I'll introduce myself as I have been writing more lately.

Name: Markus

Occupation: Currently studying in the University of Jyväskylä. Majoring marketing, minoring leadership and information systems. Part time telemarketer.
Favoite Music Artist(s): This is hard.. I guess I'll go with Metallica, System of a down and In Flames
Favorite TV show: I have a pretty clear top six. In no order: Sopranos, The Wire, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, House of Cards and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (yeah, anime rocks. I mean, go watch that show. Now. It's that good.)
Favorite Book(s) or Author(s): I don't remember last book I read. Like seriously. Does Donald Duck count?
Favorite Av: Matt Duchene
Favorite Ex-Av: IF I have to pick one it is Peter Forsberg
Favorite non-Av: Wow, this is a hard question. I have a lot of players that I sympathize. I really dig Erik Karlsson and Joe Pavelski, even tho he is an Avs killer.
Next or other favorite team: 2. Dallas Stars and 3. San Jose Sharks/Tampa Bay Lightning to name top three favourites. Far from Avs, no worries.
Favorite Av moment: Well, I have been following team very actively since the start of the 13-14 season, so I guess I have to name that season completely.
How and when did you become an Av fan?: Picked Avs in NHL games when I was a kid. Who could resist a team full of superb players? Been an Avs fanever since, even tho in mid 2000's I did follow more Manchester United than Colorado Avalanche.

Well, I am new after all so...

Name: Karl
Gender: Male
Age: 23
Location: Ontario
Occupation: Student at Carleton studying Cognitive Neuroscience
Favorite Music Artist: Don't really have a favourite artist, if I were to pick one it'd probably be Twenty One Pilots, also a big KPOP fan. I've seen other posters talk about KPOP on the boards so I'm not alone!
Favorite TV Show: Shameless, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Arrested Development, Survivor, House of Cards, quite a lot.
Favorite Author: I'm very bad with getting books that I actually enjoy, though I just read the SnowDen Files which was really good.
Favorite Av: When he's on? MacKinnon. Love Zadorov, and I'm unhealthily excited for Jost.
Favorite Ex-Av: Foppa. 100%, my name's a dead giveaway.
Favorite Non-Av: Radulov, Gostisbehere, Jagr, Luongo.
Next Favorite Team: Ilses. Philly 100%, love their team. Fitting that it's the same team that drafted Foppa.
How else is hockey in your life?: Not a whole lot, pretty busy. Play it when I can, mostly just watch and slowly work on my jersey collect.
Favorite Av moment: 2013-14 playoff series vs Minny. All the comebacks, MacKinnon.. Such entertaining, emotional hockey.
How and when did you become an Av fan?: Bit of a weird thing, was the year after the lockout (2005-06), didn't really have a team, followed the Habs for a while because of Cristobal Huet and Saku Koivu, then Calgary for awhile cause of Kiprusoff and Phaneuf, but I remember watching Calgary play against Colorado and I just loved their jersey, colour scheme and the way they played so offensively. Started Youtubing the 90s-early 2000 playoff runs, found the entire game 7 2001 final on Youtube. Also how I fell in love with Foppa, which is also how I started following Philly, because he signed with them after the lockout. When he signed with us for his comeback it was magic despite everything.

Favorite Avs moment: I remember beeing a kid and we could not see NHL games live in Finland, but I saw a repley from Avs first cup win against the panthers and that really made me like the avs and also try to watch more NHL related things. I think that at that moment I became a fan.
