    Probably helps that the Aves have 2 stanley cups under their belts and they've been around a bit longer than the Caps.

    With the Redskins as an exception, most Washington sports have a ways to go to establish the kind fan base that other big cities and east coast teams have.

    I'll remember that, Gary, next time I have tickets to give out LOL


    Seriously, I go to quite a few games. I've never put skates on my feet, nor really have a desire to at this stage of life. I take too long to heal now.


    I didn't take pictures, because I don't have a worthy camera of quality shots, unfortunately. I'm always looking for the stellar deal on a DSLR, though... New or used.. I lust for a dslr camera..

    I was referring to the Avalanche.

    Let me know if you get any Nationals tickets. LOL. I picked up a Rebel XTI over the summer. I absolutely love it. Although I do want the 5D. That thing takes breath taking pictures.

    how cute, heather became an av's fan the year they won the stanley cup. Oh and heather, technically the av's have only been around since the 95-96 season. They were the quebec nordiques before that and most quebec fans disassociated themselves when the avs left. They just are popular because they got a bunch of bandwagon fans who saw them win a few stanley cup and they exists everywhere now. Just like theres a bunch of red wings fans everywhere. Av's fans are in any building, when they come to la a bunch of them are around.

    I've been a fan since 1995! I liked them at the beginning, before they even won the Stanley Cup (in 1996; and again in 2001). I also own several orignal series McFarlane Avalanche figurines (Bourque, Forsberg, etc.) Joe Sakic is my favorite player and I'm disappointed he was never made into a McFarlane figurine.

    And I did make a mistake earlier...the Caps have been around longer than the Aves, I was just confusing my head by bringing in their baseball team.

    No bandwagon fan here!!!

    1st season they became the avs they won the cup. I remember that year, 4 games only in stanley cup finals against panthers, 4th game went to 3 OT. Good old days (sorta)
