My father was a pretty big Leafs fan and brought me into the game. I believe he stopped really caring after the 05 lockout (same thing happened with baseball), but he at least tolerated it for the couple years after when I still lived with him and wanted to watch. Now I don't think he watches hockey at all.
My mother is an army brat who spent a lot of her younger years bouncing around Europe, but when she was in Canada it was impossible to avoid hockey. She was a Bruins fan, but pretty much stopped paying attention after the 70s.
My Grandmother was a casual fan at best in her younger years, but she was very close to the Smythe family and used to babysit for them. Still likes to tell me what an awful, grumpy old man Conn was.
