So although I’m 45 and have technically been alive for their last 6 cups, I’ve never watched them win live (in person or even on TV)
I’ve been a die hard fan since I can remember but in ‘86 we left from Quebec for a 2 month family trip to Greece right after the conference finals with the Rangers. I was fortunate enough to have been in the Forum for game 5 against New York but had to resort to Short Wave radio searching to find out if they actually won the cup.
In 1990 we moved to Greece so I basically followed the team through 2 day old USA Today newspapers.
I moved back to Montreal in 94’ for University but we’ve been pretty futile since.
Now I’m living in the US and knowing my luck they’ll go on a tear and win it all this year and I still won’t be able to take my kids (who are also die hard fans by default) to the damn parade!!!
