Tonight, as a perk for being a season ticket holder for over 20 years, my dad was given a suite to watch the game from. It has been a year of perks for him from the Devils. Drew and my nephew Mikey got to ride a zamboni, DJ got to follow the production team around one game, Drew got to press the starting horn of a game….there have been a lot of perks.
This weekend the Devils are celebrating the 20th Anniversary of winning their first Stanley Cup. We were lucky enough to have been at that game!! One of the most amazing things to witness in person!!
In the suite next to ours tonight, were many of those alumni players – sitting right there. We were all a bit star struck. John Maclean, Scott Niedermayer, Colin White, Randy McKay, Bruce Driver, Brian Ralston, Mike Peluso and a quick drop in by my all-time favorite, Ken Daneyko.
All of them were nice enough to let us take some photos and several of them talked to us about the “old times” and how great it was to watch that team play together. Mike Peluso was posing for selfies and being silly with my brothers and kids.
We only had our phones with us for photos, so the photos aren’t the greatest but they are fun and gave us new memories from our favorite “old” team.
We loved this team then, and watching my own children love hockey and The New Jersey Devils the way I did when I was their age, has been so much fun to see! So for today’s photo prompt, the word is LOVED. This photo of my brother and Mike Peluso (although snapped super fast so the clarity is not great, ) might just describe the love for the team without words!
