CV I'd go into more detail, but truthfully I'm not going to bother because you see, I've never played hockey in my life, can't even ice skate, and didn't get into it until after I was 8. It's not like I stick out I mean, I taught myself how to read box scores from the paper, read up on the history, taped every Penguins game on ESPN for years, could tell you about hockey being stagnated in Texas before the Stars and how the game has grown since, etc, but it'll never be good enough because according to you and many others hockey's not in my blood. I may come from the South and didn't grow up with the game, but I have been growing with it since. You'd think my love for it and what I did to stick with it would be good enough, but apparently it's still not.
Well said! I love the rationalization people try and do about Pittsburgh almost losing the Pens. It is pretty damn simple, no Sid, no Penguins in Pittsburgh. What do you think he would have done for hockey in Phoenix? Or Nashville, Columbus, hell, even Atlanta.
