I'm pulling for the USA against Finland today! Does that count?

Huge hockey fan but not the NHL.

I played in high school and even got a scholarship to a small WI college but I chose the AF instead.

As for the NHL, I totally lost interest after the lockout. It isn't fun to watch a bunch of millionaire crybabies anymore. I'd much rather watch and talk about college hockey.

When I was an NHL fan, I followed the Minnesota North Stars until they moved, then I followed the Blackhawks. I was a Hawks freak for a few years but also tired of dollar Bill never wanting to spend money to improve the team. After Roenick left, I bailed too.

The Broadway Blueshirts. We who influenced the need for the lockout more than anyone, benefitted most from it.

Dude,
Are you familiar with the Hampton Roads Admirals of the ECHL? They used to come to Raleigh back in early '90s to play the Icecaps. Now THAT was hockey! They played for the love of the game 'cause Lord knows they were making barely enough to survive. Tickets were $8, beer was $3, parking was free.

Not a big hockey fan though I do follow the local Dayton Bombers. Im not sure what league they play in but the ECHL sorta sounds familier. I can't stand watching it on tv but going to a game in person is a whole lotta fun. Went with a couple buddies of mine to a bunch of Ohio State hockey games a couple years ago and it opened my eyes to hockey a little, before then i hated it. I gotta say the OSU-Michigan hockey game was just as intense as anyhting you'd se on the football field

We go quite frequently! The parking is still free, the stadium is actually quite nice, and tix are still pretty cheap. It is always a good time.

Sorry to hear about Team USA guys. Nice of the fins to do the Canucks dirty-work!
