What little the casual sports fan might know about New Jersey Devils is that they had a pretty good goalie a few years back, won a few Stanley Cups, and in typical Jersey fashion, celebrated with a parade through a parking lot.
Anything else has likely been gleaned from one memorable episode of "Seinfeld," in which Elaine is alerted to the peculiar fandom of her boyfriend David Puddy, who paints his face and accosts unsuspecting clergy members in the street.
In fact, so convincing was actor Patrick Warburton's depiction of a die-hard Devils loyalist that it remains a core part of the team's identity today. Which leads us to this picture of current Devils Brian Boyle, Stefan Noesen, Keith Kinkaid, Pavel Zacha, and Adam Henrique wearing t-shirts of Puddy designed by California-based Violent Gentlemen.
Here's a closer look:
You can get your own version of the Puddy shirt here, and while we're talking '90s hockey-based pop culture references, this "Wayne's World"-inspired tee is pretty sweet as well.
