newjerseydevils.com – There are plenty of you out there.
You paint your face, never miss a game, and can't stand the trapezoid.
Dinnertime at your house means watching "Chico Eats," and your friends know better than to call during a Devils power play.
You love a 2-1 game as much as a 6-0 blowout, and maybe even more. If a one-goal win is what it takes, you'll take it. You've always said that what matters is who finishes with the 'W'.
A slick breakaway move or a gutsy blocked shot, you come out of your seat for any play that's about blood, sweat and tears. Doesn't matter if that seat's three rows off the glass in Section 13 or in the comfort of your own living room.
Ever wonder why every hockey player that's ever been honored at center ice has thanked the fans?
Scotty did it when they raised No. 4 to the rafters. So did Dano. That's not force of habit. It's not some empty token of appreciation written into the script by an intern.
It's because none of this happens without involvement from the fans. Not the cheers, the noise, or the memories. Not the stairwell chants, not the whistles, not the message board rants. Not even the waving behind Steve Cangialosi during the postgame show at the Bud Light Goal Bar.
Yeah, there are plenty of you out there. And soon you’ll have a place to post your Devils best online, whether it's your favorite fan stories, photos or videos.
When it launches, the Devils Legion fan page will be for the guy that hasn’t shaved in the spring for past 10 postseasons; the mom that never forgets to wear her blinking Devils horns; or the kid that comes to every game in his brother’s hand-me-down Johnny Mac jersey.
Rock your red in the playoffs, fly a Devils car flag and keep calling that sports radio station until they just can't deny your passion for this team. Grab individual tickets, or go all in for an eight-game strip so that you're covered through to the conference finals.
Then get ready to join the Devils Legion. There’s no purchase necessary… you paid your membership dues the first time you called yourself a Devils fan.
