My Dad loves hockey and we're both big Leaf fans. My Mom grew up as a Habs fan but was forced to convert, and I must say I'm proud, she has never looked back
They both took me to my first game - Stephenville Jets vs. the Port-aux-Basques Mariners at the old rink here, the Gardens. Halfway through the 2nd period a flight landed and it was deafening inside the building (a converted WW2 hangar on the tarmac of an active airport), then the roof started to leak above our seats... terrible experience, but I still wanted skates for christmas and begged to go see another game.
My mom was never big on seeing my games though, occasionally she would but not often. Oddly, they still go watch the junior team I played for a couple of years ago, never miss a game actually. She doesn't watch NHL games but keeps up to speed on how the Leafs are doing and wants to know about her favourite player, Jason Spezza... go figure.
