Early 90s. I started collecting cards of all sorts in all sports. I'm a Bills fan because my father is a Bills fan. Same with the Knicks, Yankees and the Orange. But Pops is a Ranger fan. I asked him one day why he likes the Rangers and not the Sabres. I couldn't figure it out. He doesn't like the Giants or the Jets. He likes the Bills, why not the Sabres? He told me "Kev, the Sabres weren't even a team until I was 18 years old. I've been rooting for the Rangers for too long to change teams and besides Messier is gonna bring us a cup soon!" (He was right, *****!) So I decided that I was gonna be different and root for both Buffalo teams. Dad said "good luck! And That new Russian kid they got might be good."
Favorite Player: Mogilny
Moment: I turned 21 in April of 06. Times were very good for a whole lot of reasons. And then our entire defense got snapped out of existence. But it was a very fun run. And a very fun time in my life.
