Born and raised in Bergen Country NJ but moved down to Florida for college. Hoping to eventually live in NJ again so I can be closer to the team.

Question - for those of you fellow Devil fans who live outside of NJ, do you find it harder to be a fan? I really really miss seeing games at Prudential Center

Hey Chess, where are you from in Bergen County? Sorry if I already have asked this before. I'm from Cliffside Park. So I was only a few blocks from Hudson County (North Bergen)

I don't find it to be hard. I do miss seeing games at Prudential Center, as I think I saw all but one regular season/playoff game that was played in there prior to the 11-12 season. Luckily with my job, I'm able to get up there for holidays and I can catch a few games when I'm up.

I've been here 2 years as of last month, and no plans to ever move back. The Devils and having access to better food (Particularly pizza) do make it tempting sometimes though!

Anyone else in the Flemington/Hunterdon area? I'm putting a new 60" TV with surround sound and would enjoy having some neighbors over to catch a couple games

I was the only Devils fan in deep Rangers territory for HS. It was right after 94, so they were out in force. I was loud and proud and got abused for it. They mostly stopped wanting to talk hockey around the time Messier left for Vancouver.

Since I have gamecenter, and the HF boards, I find that it is easier to keep up being a fan of the Devils. I used to live in NW NJ (Hamburg) but had to move back to Washington State to take care of family. I do miss the Rock!!

Born in Brooklyn, NY.
Lived in Staten Island, NY for a year.
Currently live in Central NJ and Brooklyn.

Became a Devils fan before I moved to NJ, because the Islanders were a joke and I hated the Ranger fans in my family.

Born in southern California, raised in Bergen County, NJ. Moved back to CA when I was 12, even spent a few years in my early 20s in Manhattan... Kansas. Back in CA now, just outside Anaheim. I have a feeling by this time next year I'll be living somewhere else, possibly another state. I move a lot!

To answer your question, I find it much harder to be a Devils fan out here. There are few hockey fans out here to begin with (maybe a bit more now that the Kings won a Cup, but mostly bandwagoners waiting for the Lakers season to start) so it's not easy to find other folks to talk to about the NHL.

Going to Devils vs. Kings/Ducks is hell. Both fanbases are rude and constantly harass me at games despite the fact that I keep to myself. I don't go to Devils games anymore because it's not worth it. Hopefully I'll be able to get back to NJ and see a game at The Rock someday.

So I take it you won't be going to see the Devils when they play the Kings in LA this year? I wouldn't. That place would be hell on earth.

It really is. Marty Brodeur is the sole reason I became a Devils fan when I was living in Chicago. Just happened to have to move to Jersey a few years later.
