My friend in her Hawk's jersey and me in my Lightning jersey. My son is playing Junior hockey, and had league games in St Louis last year when the Lightning were in town. We had great seats, and it was lots of fun. I try to see them whenever they are close. Would love to see them in Nashville. I went to a Hawk's playoff game there when the Hawks won the cup. That place is a blast. I really don't think I slept the entire time I was there....way too much fun!
Having grown up north of Detroit, I never noticed anyone with away jerseys getting abuse. I would say though that Colorado fans might not have wanted to be visible about their love for the Avs during those heated rivalry years.
