First Anniversary May 19 2011

On this day one year ago today, Stephen Brundt of the Globe and Mail published an online article that gave the first real clue, albeit unofficially, that the Jets are coming back to Winnipeg. I was waiting for this news to happen for 15 years. Celebrations spontaneously broke out at Portage and Main and the twitter feed was spinning like crazy. I was in my apartment in Montreal celebrating the news. The official announcement came weeks after but it was anticlimatic compared to this night

What a day!

I considered this to be the day of the news. Brundt is credible so I figured the rest was just working out the details.

I suppose I can't say that I was as excited as the people in the 'Peg, but it was close. I was as happy for you as I was for hockey fans here. No matter how well the teams do, We got 'er back

That was just part of great Ride we were on our return...

Me and all my buddies would msg each other any time we heard any rumor no matter what it was. One rumor this I remember was I heard that KUB Bread that I live next too who supplies buns for the hot dogs tripled their order for the next year and it was just funny any little tidbit of news was great.

Got my season tickets few weeks later went too every game so its safe too say this has been the Best Year of my life!!

As a Montrealer, I was thrilled for you guys that you finally got your team back. I'm not a Canadian nationalist who believes our country owns the game, I love seeing US franchises succeed, but there was something very special about Winnipeg's fan base. The game is in your blood. You guys shut up the doubters and buried any doubt about the Jets future by selling out the arena for... was it five years? Amazing!

Happy Birthday to a great team and an even greater fan base -- the only one that can out-scream us Habs fans!

It was truly an amazing day, but to be fair the real one year anniversary is on May 31st when True North officially bought the team. That's when I'm celebrating it at least .

Stephen Brunt's article was THE return of the Jets. I think most people feel that way.

That's how I felt about it anyway.
