I am a supporter of Jersey's Team: The New Jersey Devils. A fan since 1994 and a season ticket holder since the opening of the Rock, I began In Lou We Trust in October 2006 to discuss and express opinions, analysis, perspectives, and reactions to the news and events surrounding the Devils. The writing may be much, but the passion for the team to succeed drives my writing and the blog as a whole.
