hockey hater

Last night was the first time in ages that no trains have gone by while I was trying to fall asleep.

It WAS, however, the night the Red Wings decided to win the Stanley Cup, so everyone and their mother was driving around honking their horns at all hours of the night/morning... thus fueling my hatred for hockey. 

Having admitted my hatred of hockey, I'm pretty sure it's only a matter of time before someone in greater Detroit (the area affectionately referred to as Hockeytown) hunts me down and strings me up for blasphemy.

And, as I'm writing this, I'm remembering that a large portion of my extended family are also professed lovers of Sabers hockey... oops.

To clarify - I did go to a U of M hockey game that was actually quite fun. I also think that hockey players are awesome skaters, and I've always been jealous of that spray-ice-everywhere brake they can do. But put me in front of a game on television, and it's only a matter of time before I'm banging my head against the wall.

Am I alone in this?


    Sorry, sorry, that was the Canadian in me ...

  2. one must realize that you are not originally from said hockeytown and forgive you for your comments. you only have about 2 more years to love hockey before you will be strung up.
    but reall, i do not love hockey, even though i am glad that we won!

  3. oh come one! give it another shot (note the hockey pun!).
    i heart hockey and i'm in so cal for goodness sakes! of course it made it that much more fun when the ducks won the cup. ; )

  4. oops. I meant 'oh come on'. I guess I should remember to proof read my comments. duh.

  5. I'm with you. I can't stand hockey :)

  6. I used to not be a fan of hockey too - that is until I met my husband. I decided that my options were to either spend many long nights in front of the tv banging my head against the wall, or get into the game and enjoy those many nights watching a game. So, with that said, I understand your feelings - however, I do think you should learn to love hockey as i have come to love it :)
