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?

I was cheering for them when they one a few years ago! Toronto rarely gets into the playoffs!

That's a long season!  It runs along with football too, but I'm sure we can find time for both, lol.

Quoting huneebadger:

October to June if they are not on strike!!


Quoting jillbailey26:

When is the beginning and end of the season?

Quoting huneebadger:

The NHL playoffs are right now!


Quoting jillbailey26:

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.

I find it funny as our games are always packed and I have had family go to NHL games in the US and they say the stands are empty. Also on the US news sites you rarely see hockey updates on the front page like you would on Canadian sites.


Quoting happymama2D:

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!

It's mostly the southern states that have all the empty seats. They don't grow up playing hockey and I think a lot of the fan base is relocated Northerners. The Northeast teams, Detroit and Minnesota are more hockey cities.

You're right it was Dallas and Tampa that had the empty seats!

Hockey is the main sport in this house and then football.  We love Penguins and Steelers!  I don't really watch games on the tv though, I get bored and space out.  There's a local hockey team called the Tomahawks that plays though and we go see them play sometimes.  We were so mad when they finally signed contracts because that Saturday Penguins were supposed to play against our local team here in town and they had to cancel it!
