20 years ago today...

There is already a 1993 Stanley Cup anniversary thread but that one is about the Habs' failures in the last 20 years.

But this day deserves a celebration thread.

Where were you when the Habs won the '93 Cup?

I was only 7 years old, was just watching at home. Probably too young to truly appreciate it. I didn't have much knowledge about the significance of the Cup and its history. But still, these are some of my earliest hockey memories. I think if the Habs hadn't won the Cup that year, I may not have been as big of a fan of hockey as I became.

So fitting that it was the 100th anniversary of the Cup and hockey's most storied franchise won it all. That 92-93 season was just a great season overall. Maybe the most fun season of hockey that I've watched.

Was halfway through high school, sporting a Habs jersey in class in the centre of Leaf Nation and enjoying seeing Mullet Melrose and friends flounder in what would be the best year for Canadian sports ever!

If only we knew what was coming down the pipe...

I was 8. I remember my mom would let me stay up for all of the games during the Cup run. With all of the overtimes, I ended up falling asleep quite a few times, though.

I distinctly remember falling asleep on the couch, and then the next thing I know, my mom came to wake me up in bed (I guess her or my dad carried me up) to tell me the Habs won in OT.

Anyway, for the finals, I didn't fall asleep at all. I remember the win as much as an 8 year old can. I just wish I was older to fully appreciate it... or even better, I wish we could win a Cup soon!
