Lol..if you saw Fuzzy's girlfriend..you'd know the reason for that disability!

As a teenager my friends and I used to go to an empty Shea Stadium in the late 70,s and always sat in the upper deck. Fuzzy,Igor, Weber and the rest of the crew provided more entertainment than those Met,s teams Circa 1979. As I got older I saw Fuzzy all the time at the Rangers game and always wondered how he paid for all those games. When I saw him at the Winter Classic I thought the same thing. Fuzzy provided me with a lot of great memories and he looks the same 30 years later.

Yep that's where they were. And yeah he is a good guy. Right now all of our games are gone but if something pops up where someone backs out, I'll let you know

Oh Fuzzy!!! This guy has been a staple at Devils games and it's interesting to hear stories.

Last year he had some sort of foot infection and was homeless..his girlfriend (who is quite scary) would still come to games without him.

Absolutely. "Me here... you... there." or "THE Eddie Scozare?"

Didn't know the Chief personally but going to games in high school I saw him every damn time. Gave him a high 5 every time. Too bad he passed.

lol... great stuff.

I distinctly remember driving home from the bar after the Game 7 in 1994 and in true old-school radio style, Sommers played "Simply the best" by Tina Turner (not a great song but it was the 1994 team's song unfortunately) intercut with highlight calls of the play-offs.

Having cried like a baby when they won and skated the Cup around, I cried again hearing that song with all those fantastic moments on the way home in the car. Would love to get a copy of that mix... I wonder if it exists somewhere.

Ahhhhh the good old days.
