I watched my first games as a baby, but I didn't really become a fanatic until around age 8 in 1993.

According to my parents I first got interested around 90-91, but I can't remember that far back. But I became a serious card collector in 91-92 and by 92-93 I was hooked.

I vaguely recall Bobby Orr's Cup-clinching goal against St. Louis in the 1970 Cup Finals. That was my first memory as a 6-year old. Another early memory was hearing about Gerry Meehan's goal with 4 seconds left on the last day of the 1971-72 regular season that prevented the Flyers from making the playoffs. It was the same day Gil Hodges died (on a golf course I seem to recall) and I heard both stories on a sports broadcast.

Became a fan after I moved back here from Germany just in time for kindergarten....around 64/65?

The downstairs neighbor and landlord was an insurance man and a big Bruins fan who had Leo Boivin as a customer. He used to make a rink in the back yard for his two sons and the rest of us kids in the neighborhood.

Alledgedly Boivin came by the house and got a kick out of watching a bunch of us squirts flopping all over the backyard ice but i don't really remember seeing him there....wouldn't have known him anyway and only found out who he was long after the fact.

I remember it vividly.
I was wearing my Little League uniform as I had a game that day....got home in time to watch the 2nd/3rd/OT....thank goodness we didn't go into extra innings, eh?
