this season ticket holder went to the first home game, and attended games in all 43 seasons. your dedication should be admired sir:

Quote:
They called him "Mr. Hockey."

When 72-year-old Ronald H. Schmidt of Mehlville died in his sleep early Tuesday morning, the St. Louis Blues lost not just a fan. They lost a fan who attended the franchise's first home game in 1967 and who came to know announcers, journalists and Hall-of-Famers alike simply by showing up, almost without fail, for 43 straight seasons.

Whoa. That's amazing. I really hope they do something like that, that would be a very nice gesture for the Blues to put a plaque or something up there either on the seat or right below it.

Classic, Kodos. :lol:

R.I.P, Sir Schmidt

Sad that he died only to miss these guys one day winning a Cup...or more likely, another Presidents Trophy.

This thread is HOF already.

And the Blues just beat the Wild...here they come... :letsgoblues: :hawkssuck: :detsucks: :facepalm:
