Hockey

I am Canadian and we tend to love our hockey! I notice that hockey does not seem that popular in the US as football and basketball. I cheer for Toronto even though they tend not to do that well!!

Do you or your SO like to watch hockey and if so what team do you cheer for?

We have a local team here where we live.  The Gwinnett Gladiators.  I like going to watch them play.  It's fun.  We don't have an official team we cheer for.  I don't even know when hockey season is.  I bet if I knew we'd watch more of it.

My husband is obsessed with the st Louis blues and has gotten our entire family into the game. We watch them all together and have a great time. Our little man (19 months) is obsessed with the game his jersey and playing with his mini hockey stick and foam pucks!

That's cute, great way to spend time as a family!! I remember watching hockey with my family when I was young and we would stay up late to see the end of the games!

Canadian as well, and while I can't support the Leafs (I'm a Montreal fan) I do love a person who isn't fickle when their team isn't doing well. Hubby is a HUGE hockey fan and would die before cheering on a team other than the Habs. I think all Canadians can agree though, that the Canucks can suck it, and I'm not sorry they got swept. :)

We love hockey! I live in an area that is really into hockey and my boys play, but you are correct that most of the US isn't really, which is their loss because hockey is the best! I do love football too.
We are Sabres fans here!
