I've been a fan since 1967 when the Blues entered the NHL. I went to the cup finals when we lost to Montreal & Boston but my interest never diminished. I wasn't able to make it to very many games but I always caught them on the radio. No NHL Center Ice back then but I have it now.
We both have Blues license plates ( BLDBLU, BLDZ & OHBABI ), a Blues theme room, painted the garage floor blue and added the Blue Note. We were chosen by the Blues in a Bleed Blue contest and our license plates are on the Blues website and on a billboard in St. Louis. For luck I wear a Blues shirt to work everyday along with my Blues key chain, money clip, gloves and jacket. We also have a phone system at home that allows for music on hold so we play Blues scoring clips. Even though I am in my forties I still get choked up when the boys skates onto the ice, they dim the lights & play the National Anthem.
Hockey may be "The Coolest Game On Earth" but its the only game that truly warms my heart.
