While I agree hockey is not a desert sport I still feel sorry for anyone who loses their hockey Team. Saw it happen here in MN two years after I moved here. For that very reason I will always root against the Stars!! I'm celebrating the wings win with a home brew myself. Long way to go but it's a good start.
Must be nice to watch red wing hockey regularly. I still live in Michigan (just barely) but we don't get any Michigan channels or even FSD. Thankfully I get VS so I'll actually be able to catch some postseason games. But it makes me so mad that I live in this damn state and can't the channels!
