face hahahaha. This city is really paying attention now!
The school where I teach is 90%+ Mexican. I teach French, so we talk about Canada and hockey often enough. I took some students to a game back in February and they loved it. Now I have a pretty big chunk of my students following the team, asking how they're doing and when they play next (a lot of them don't get FSAZ+, so they're kind of screwed out of watching the games).
I have some who would LOVE to try hockey - but they can't skate. It's just not something they get to do as kids, so they never really get into it. If we could find a way to get some of the soccer fans to watch a hockey game or two, it would probably appeal to them - same concept, only much faster!
They all know Torres because he's the ONE guy on the team who can speak Spanish! They like him cause he's pretty rough. This is only going to build his street cred with them.
