I've been a Blues fan since the early 1970's and honestly thought I'd never see this moment. My stepdad who introduced me and the rest of my family to the game and sacrificed to take me to many. many Blues games didn't live long enough to see our team finally win the Cup. Going to Blues games at the old St. Louis Arena back then was a family affair as my stepdad, myself, and four of my uncles spent every penny we had to go as often as we could. Those nights are some of my fondest memories. Only two of those uncles are still with us and as soon as the game was over we were on the phone together weeping tears of joy.
Last night was really a dream come true for us and so many other longtime Blues fans in St. Louis. Believe me, it was a LONG time coming.
