|Original bio courtesy of NewJerseyDevils.com. (The current one, which is what's
linked, is revised and MUCH briefer.)
The first portion of N.J.'s bio just recounts the legend, so I'll pick up from the last part.
"In 1993 Continental Airlines Arena received numerous reports of a large "red" figure
perched high in the catwalk. This "red" figure was said to be wearing a hockey jersey
and tossing peanut shells down on the people sitting in the stands. Upon further
investigation, the reports were confirmed and this "Red" figure was approached by
Security for a ticket stub. To everyone's surprise the figure revealed himself as the
legendary "New Jersey Devil". He confessed that he was a huge hockey fan that
would like to sit in a real seat rather than on the cold, catwalk steel. Since that night,
the New Jersey Devil, a once-feared piece of New Jersey history, has been dancing in
the stands, skating on the ice, and cheering for the team as the New Jersey Devils
number one fan!"
Considering that his alleged home is the Blue Hole, you'd think he'd be used to the
cold by now. :)
