"I don't think many people have an understanding of just how close this community is with their hockey team" says local hockey fan Tessa Swartz "I think most of the hockey fans around the country think that hockey just belongs in the Northeast or in Michigan or Minnesota, we are here to prove those people wrong!"
So 50-80 people was considered a success? What was expected?
I was pleased at the turn-out......I expected maybe 20.
I think the success for this was not measured in the number of the fans who turned out but more the media coverage the event received. Judging by that, it was an overwhelming success.....all the news outlets (TV & major newspapers) covered the event.
There were some "so-called fans" who stayed home and watched the UT bowl game (and you know who I'm talking about).... :bonk:
