Stian Nevøy (@Stinev) lives in Stavanger, Norway. He lives in a big hockey town, being the home of 2010’s Norwegian Championship hockey team, the Stavanger Oilers. We have The Cup, they have The Bucket.
It all started 10 years ago when Stian bought an NHL video game. He decided to play with the team with the best goalie – New Jersey Devils had Martin Brodeur. Stian started watching hockey and naturally picked the Devils as his team. Since NHL doesn’t broadcast over in Norway, Stian has to keep up with the Devils through ESPN’s website.
Some of Stian’s favorite players are Patrick Elias, Martin Brodeur and our former captain, Jamie Langenbrunner. His favorite Devils moment is when the they beat the Montreal Canadians 4-3 in 2006 and had 11 straight wins.
Stian has never been to The Rock for a Devils game, but decided that needed to change. He’ll be attending his first Devils game at the Prudential Center this month. Hope you enjoy it, Stian!
Where did you watch Game 5 of the Boston and Montreal series? If it wasn’t at Cryan’s in South Orange, you made the wrong choice. The Generals hosted a Tweet Up to watch the game last Thursday with all the usual festivities. There was hockey. There were prizes. There was even a Stanley Cup in attendance… kind of.
Tweet Ups are fun, that’s a given. But each Tweet Up gets better. There are a few regular attendee’s and always a few new faces. It’s a great way to meet and hang out with other hockey fans and enjoy a game. Since the Devils season has officially ended this is how we can get our playoff hockey fix! There’s still hockey to watch and there’s plenty to talk about. All the usual topics are covered – players, teams, stats. Then there are the unusual conversations about hockey hats and beards. (Kim and I decided that the Flyers need to clean up a bit, don’t you agree?)
The majority of us were rooting for Boston so the overtime win was pretty sweet! We also had a ton of give aways and a drawing to win an autographed Elias puck that people were pretty pumped about.
It was another successful Tweet Up. If you missed this one don’t worry, there will be more to come! We kind of really like this Tweet Up thing.
