FRIENDS OF THE DEVILS?: When the Twins won the World Series in 1987, I opened my front door in suburban St. Louis Park and could hear people shouting and yelling in celebration from all throughout the metro area. Same goes for Manhattan in 2000, when the Yankees beat the Mets to win their 26th championship. I'm looking out my window right now, and I can't see or hear anything out of the ordinary. It's not like the Devils won the Stanley Cup tonight or anything like that...
Credit where credit is due- the Devils played a hell of a game and a hell of a series, and managed to win Game 7 3-0. The most embarrassing moment was probably when the Conn Smythe trophy (for playoffs MVP) was awarded to Ducks goalie J.S. Giguerre, and the Devils fans- 30 seconds after their team won the Cup- responded by booing him lustily. All class, those Jersey fans... I'm sure Joe Piscopo is very proud of them.
