Dragged my GF to a hockey game about 6 years ago with the promise of - you don't like it I'll never ask you again.

Before the game was over she was asking when are we coming again.

We are now entering our 4th year as season ticket holders.

If my girlfriend had any idea that when I was at work I was really just posting on sports blogs/forums all day, I'm pretty sure that'd be the end of us.

I wonder if Ranger fans will be able to drag this thread to the very depths of perverse degradation that we Flyers fans have been able to.

Totally see your point.

They dont get it, because they havent spent HUNDREDS of hours here and watching games during the whole season.

When you put that much energy into something and it all comes crumbling down (for me it was the Drury game for Buffalo two years ago) its diffucult for some people to jsut put that aside.

I had to walk outside I was so pissed because we were with a group of people and she thought it was embarrassing how i was losing my ****.

If it were the other way around and she was as passionately engrossed in one thing for 8 months at a clip, all to come crashing down in the matter of seconds - she would totally understand where you are coming from.

Likes baseball, but doesn't get hockey at all. Likes the games for the boozing though.

My wife is mildly interested. She'll go to games. Although I was surprised when she recently floated the idea of getting season tickets.

I've told this story before:

In high school I took a girl to a game. We had been dating for a while but it was not working. On the day of the game, which I had been looking forward to, she informs me that she doesn't want to stay for the whole game. Without missing a beat I replied, "That's cool, we can leave after the third period." This seemed to please her.

Luckily the game didn't go into OT.

She figured out what had happened. Needless to say, the relationship ended soon after.

My wifes not too bad. She goes to a few games during the season and knows to stay away from me when I'm watching at home. The really cool thing is my son. He's so into the Rangers its great. He already started asking me when pre-season starts and when are we going to the first game. Makes watching the games all that more fun -- just gotta watch what I say around him!

my last ex was a Ranger fan I don't have a problem with her.....
but my other ex who I actually hate is a Red Wings fan (it killed me seeing them win the cup), she claimed I love the Rangers more than her, matter of fact I love my Ranger jerseys more than her and who wouldn't

Awesome. Just awesome.

I'm single. My ex claimed she liked the Rangers, we even watched a few games and attended one and she seemed like she had a good time. Then she just randomly lost interest. And things fell apart not long after that. And I thank God for a number of reasons.

thats kind of like when people tell me to calm down and it's "just a game" they have no idea. Rangers hockey is a lifelong commitment and you cant just let it go when they lose.

My wife is a die hard Devils fan. We met at an ice rink, got engaged at an ice rink, and wore jerseys at our wedding reception. There's nothing more passionate or hot than rooting for division rivals. We go to 4-6 Rangers-Devils games per year, including a playoff game when they face off. She knows not only every player on both of our teams, but many other players from other teams as well. We have two TV's running when both teams play other teams on the same night. She gets it, and gets just as upset when her team gets knocked out as I do when we get knocked out.
