    I never looked at this thread before. My one takeaway from all these posts is that Jonas is SJ's favourite Raptor lmao

    Also, much respect to all the 2012 op's who haven't edited their "Andrea Bargnani" favourite Raptor answers.

    I actually went to a game vs GSW on November 27, 1995. We sat waaayyyyyy up in the 500 level of Skydome haha might as well have been watching from another country! We started(regular season) on November 3, 1995 vs New Jersey Nets, Alvin Roberston had a heck of a game. So they're just a tad older than you.

    Good stuff though, not too many folks follow or really know what happened in the league before they became fans. I include myself in that mix, I love baseball and football too(hockey when I was younger as well), so just not enough time in the day.
    I try my best to go back.... especially expansion stuff. I love knowing how a franchise moved, and where teams were originally planned to move.


    I'm a lacrosse and baseball guy myself.

    It's fun to know your history, I say.


    Heck, I have tons of old books on stats and everything. One of the reasons I want to go into sports history or journalism/broadcasting myself if I can.

    1 & 2. I do watch a lot of classic games, and I went to that game as a kid. Plus, I'm a avid sports history reader. And I went to that game..... so it's forever in my head. Heck, when it came to tickets and the question being when Vince scored 50, I said that game right away, even though it wasn't credited as a correct answer.

    3. No.... I've had Coors though. I don't mind beer at all.

    4. Care to hear who my ideal sport date would be? Going ahead and just meeting a old sports legend of any sorts, or Dick Irvin.


    (P.S. I'm the same age as the team. The Raptors franchise is not 20 just yet..... we didn't receive the team until December of 95. I was born December 21, 1995.)
