We don't really have any fans here.

We have people that perpetually think the sky is falling (and may be way off the reservation, or lacking medication)

We have people that are super dumb and hang out in something called "FlashChat" which I think is cover for illicit trafficking of topless hockey player photos.

We have people that don't know Nelson Emersons first name!

Hey everyone. My name is Josh and I currently live north of St. Louis but over in the Illinois side. Been a Blues fan since I was born ('84) and have since converted my wife into being a big Blues fan herself.

Can't wait to talk hockey with other people devoted to bringing a Cup to the Lou!

Not new but like others the ol' account has gone defunct after long absence. Won't mention what it was (you could figure it out if you were interested but you're not) as it would only jog memories of folks who found me irritating.

What else? Grew up in Florissant. I date my following the Blues from hazy early memories of Liut in goal (fascinated with the position, I still play it). I must have been 4 or 5 at the time. Dad was a fan from the beginning. I live in NYC now-this board makes up for all the time I'd like to spend arguing with my brothers about the club but can't.

Watching that Arena demolition video upthread hurts my heart...I remember those Jr. Blues Club seats as well, Curt...ah well, c'est la vie-as Perron would say...

Hi everyone. I used to post here regularly from 2003-2007, but only sporadically 2008-2010, and none at all since then, when there was very little posting. I'm back to see if this forum has revived a little. Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba in the '40s-early '60s, my family lived in Ab McDonald's neighbourhood, and we were friendly with his family. I played youth hockey through Midget, and Junior B level. We had a backyard rink (usable for 5 months per year (back in those pre-Global Warming years). We used to visit family in Chicago (starting in 1951). I started being an NHL fan in 1951 (seeing a few games). Being that Winnipeg didn't have an NHL team, and we Canadian Midwesterners were hated rivals of everything relating to Montréal and Toronto, I became a Blackhawks fan. Later, I was a big fan of Glenn Hall (when he came over from Detroit). We moved to Chicago in the early '60s. When The NHL expanded in 1967, I became an instant Blues' fan, when they drafted Hall in The Expansion Draft. In 1968, Ab McDonald was traded to The Blues, and they became my favourite team (ahead of The Blackhawks).

So, I've been a Blues fan since before their first practise, and I've been waiting for them to win The Stanley Cup since the start of their first season. I watched Gordie Howe, Rocket Richard, Jean Beliveau, Bernie Geoffrion, Ted Lindsey, Sid Abel, Red Kelly, Terry Sawchuck, Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita, Bobby Orr all play in their primes. I played, myself for 17 years. I love the game. It was my whole life until my late teens.

I look forward to some good hockey conversation here with all of you, during what should be a very successful season for The Blues.

Greetings to my fellow blues fans, and to the haters I guess. I grew up in North County (Hazelwood East High School for all those true St. Louisians) and my family never had an appreciation of hockey, only baseball. So growing up I only played baseball and soccer. After meeting my wife-to-be in college at SIUE she took me to my first blues hockey game and immediately I had found my new religion. Rarely have I missed watching a blues game on TV and we've purchased season tickets whenever possible. I have learned the game of hockey by playing video games from NHL 94 on super nintendo, up to NHL 13 on xbox360 and started playing roller hockey when I was 28. My 8-year-old son and I play NHL 13 constantly, but on the same team because our emotions would lead to crying, yelling and thrown controllers(by both of us). We play hockey video games and watch blues games in my media room which is decorated with hockey stuff. There's no expensive signed game worn jerseys or anything, just a lot of hockey sticks. My favorite item on display is a stick that Pavol Demitira(RIP) used in practice. We're currently looking for a hockey team that my son can join, so if anyone has knowledge of youth hockey in St. Louis please let me know. That's about it. We named our dog Barret, after Barret Jackman. I'm a systems networking and communications specialist at an area hospital and take taekwondo classes with my son.
Thanks for reading and GO BLUES!!!

Welcome aboard! Make sure you hit up the flashchat for good times and hurt feelings during regular season games.

Would love to see pics of your media room.

Hi. I was sitting at my computer supposed to be working but decided I wanted a place to read about fans thoughts on last's nights game (Game 5 vs Sharks). Found the site and decided to join. I am a long-time avid Blues fan, which is strange since I actually lived in St. Louis. I was born there but moved away at 8. However I returned for 3 years of grad school at Wash U (in St. Louis). I normally don't like teams from cities I live in because the fans annoy me for various reasons: fair-weather, blatant homerism, blind faith in the team, obnoxious cheering, etc. So it is a real testament to us Blues fans that I can still be a die hard Blues fan despite living there for 3 years. I actually enjoyed getting almost every game televised on local TV and can see why people root for their home-town team. This year I finally got a hockey package and will have that luxury again, Which is awesome as I am tired of having to beg sports bars to put on the game. Being able to watch 82 games and cheering for a cup caliber team has me really excited for the year. LGB!!!!!!!!

P.S. Also like BigSpooky, I didn't grow up with hockey but started to like it because of EA's NHL games. I wonder how many fans that game has created.

Hello to the other blue and gold team.

I'm from Buffalo, a Sabres fan, a Miller fan and an Ott fan. I wish them, and the Blues, the best through at least the rest of the season. From my perspective, regardless of the team he's on, I want to see Ryan win a Cup. He deserves it. I also feel for the Blues as a team, like the Sabres, that has been to the Finals but never won it all.

I haven't followed the Blues much previously, but I'm all in. For this season, anyway.

GO BLUES! :okman:

Hey everyone! My name is Ted, and I just found/joined the message board, and I love it! My wife, Ryann and I are huge Blues fans, but we live near Lexington, Kentucky, so there aren't many hockey fans here, much less Blues fans. I've been looking for some sort of community where I could "meet" other Blues fans, and I have finally found it! As for our story, I moved here about 5 years ago from Connecticut to live with my girlfriend, and we got married last October. I am a dispatcher for Lexington Fire Department and my wife is an insurance coordinator for a dental practice. We have 2 dogs that are everything to us. Between our jobs, our wedding, and buying our house a month before getting married, we unfortunately haven't been able to make it to STL for any games this year. We are most likely going to be able to make it to the final home game on the 13th against the Wings. If we are able to make it, where is a good place to hang out with other Blues fans before games? Last time we went, we went to Llewellyn's in Soulard. It wasn't bad but I'm guessing there are other places to check out. I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you, and hopefully have a beer or two with you before the Red Wings game. :grin:

Hello, I'm actually a lifelong Devils fan who lives in Arkansas and with my team formally eliminated from the playoffs I've decided to latch on to the most local team I could find which leads me to the winged note. While I'm aware that St Louis' history with my primary team has not always been the best (Shanahan, Stevens, Jansen for Salvador, tampering compensation leading to Parise, etc.) I've always admired the Blues for their consistency. In short, while I don't necessarily bleed blue (too many Rangers connotations for me) I will happily root for your team to bring the Cup to the Gateway City.

I'd welcome you, but the NHL might consider it tampering, and we don't need to lose our 30th overall pick for the next 12 seasons...

Ah, but 30th overall means you've won the Cup for the next 12 years (assuming of course you haven't signed any turncoat Russians to contracts till their AARP years). Might be worth it.

Just the fact that you are clearly not a Rangers fan makes you cool in my book. Welcome to LGB.

I am an ardent atheist here in St.Louis and based on my interaction with hockey fans I know there are plenty of others like me!

I am smart enough to know hockey is the greatest and fastest game on earth and I hate basebarf!

Ball...strike....foul....ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Where is the Blues general discussion thread please?
