During my time with this girl, I found a club called "Redwings Fans of Colorado", and a bar called "The Tin Lizzy" at which Redwings fans galore would conglomerate....in Colorado, to overfill the place beyond capacity during playoff games. People would overflow to the Old Chicago across the street, which would play all the Wings games on every TV.......right there in downtown Denver.
In Colorado, I started dating an Avalanche Fan. Unfortunately to this day she is still an Avalanche fan, but I started dating her less than a month after Detroit took the Stanley cup in 2002 (Again, in route beating Avs in that game 7 Statue of Liberty goal game). When the Avs got knocked out that year by the Wild, and Wings by...I forget whom off the top of my head, we mourned together
But I also got this girl to visit the Tin Lizzy with me, and the Old Chicago. We'd had a pact. I would go to her Avalanche bars, and she would go to my Redwings bars. For christmas I Got her an Alex Tanguay Avalance Jersey, and she got me a Nick Lidstrom Redwings Jersey.
Anyone else got any good tales of cross rivaly friendships/relationships?
