Nicole Simpson was murdered on the night of the 13th and the police went public with it on 14 June.

At the time, I didnt care less about OJ. NY didnt care much either. To ESPN's credit, the covered the hell out of that Cup run. The Rangers were easily the biggest sports story in America for two weeks.

To put things in perspective, the Boston Globe, LA Times and Chicago Tribune all had beat writers not only covering the Stanley Cup, but had Page One leads with the game 7 win.

Different times.

I wrote a book about this whole affair a couple of years ago. This story has had a big influence on my life, due to the fact I was only 9 when it happened. I could not believe a world-class player (which he definitely was at the time) was a victim due to unintentionally sliding the ball in his own net.

I was like 5 when this happened and this is how my journey as a Ranger fan began thanks to my brother who was 5 years older then me (may he RIP) got me into it that year. Then the parade and car chase on the same day was just mind blowing. I could go on and on about this.

Recorded in '94. Released in '95?

'94 was the last gasp of Seattle grunge. Live in NY. Superunknown. Vitalogy. Jar of Flies. Probably some others.

Musically things are so different '94 might as well be back in the Baroque era.

Pink Floyd toured the Summer of '94, I was there.

What an amazing time, especially since I was 20 yrs young.

I have no children, but I can imagine that's the only thing greater than the Summer of '94.

I saw the Rangers win the Cup, graduated from high school, went to the parade and turned 19 all in the span of a week

The Bronco chase was June 17. On June 14 the following happened.
Quote:
Tuesday, June 14
News reports indicate blood stains found in O.J. Simpson's vehicle and in his driveway match the types discovered at the crime scene. The vehicle and a pair of sneakers are confiscated. Rumors that a bloody glove has been discovered prompt the first denials from Simpson's attorney, Howard Weitzman. In an interview, Weitzman said, "I have been told by law enforcement that there was no bloody glove found at Mr. Simpson's residence." Autopsy results indicate the victims died of sharp force injuries.
Anyway, I was 8 years old when the Rangers won and I still remember those times so vividly. I hope that I at some point (hopefully very soon) I can see a Cup victory as an adult.

Pulse is so good. I usually only listen to disc 2 though. I love the DVD release. I was only 4 but my parents saw them at Giants stadium for that tour.

I feel lucky, only having to wait 15 years, being that I was a fan at 5 yrs old. My father never saw a Cup until he was 47. Once they won my father pretty much stopped watching hockey, he was fulfilled, probably the best move he ever made

I was 12 and it pretty much cemented my love of hockey and the Rangers. My fandom was growing steadily from the 80s, 91-92 made me a die hard. And 93-94 made my fandom grow to obsession (sadly). Unfortunately with each passing season I believe more and more 94 really will last a lifetime, mine and i'm only 31.

I always wanted to punch Kevin Collins in the face for that.

And he was right next to the play where Glen Anderson get a stick across his face from Momesso in game 7 and he didn't make the call, just looked at Kerry Fraser who also didn't make the call.

Let's see, what do I remember from 6/14/94.

Well, for one thing, I turned 11 that day. I had a little league baseball game that night, missed most of the first period. I remember my dad sitting in his Rangers chair in the middle of the living room. I got my first pair of roller blades and I still play inline hockey today. I got a box of hockey cards. I remember LaFayette hitting the post. I remember my mom yelling at me and my brother when we were jumping hard up and down on the couch after they won.

I remember doing a flying, leaping celebration with my friend Chris at school the next morning. I also remember sitting on the floor of the living room sorting the aforementioned box of cards while watching the OJ chase, which I guess was a few days later. My grandfather was there during the chase.

Hard to believe it's been 19 years.

Pretty much. I remember buying champagne with a horrendous fake ID that afternoon. Was 18, that liquor store was busted not too long after. Great memories. My stomach was in knots, facing either the best or absolute worst night of my life to that point.

Always thought Collins called that on purpose, never stopped hating him after that.

I remember waking up that morning to my alarm clock & the first thing I heard was Charles McCord breaking the story on Imus in the Morning. It actually gave me chills.

The night of the chase was wild for me.

Thanks guys.

Not a whole lot crazy going on for my 30th. Went away for a couple of days last weekend. Going to a local show later. Hanging with more friends tomorrow night. I've never really cared much about the number.
