Political Leanings vs Hockey Fandom

Please forgive this somewhat whimsical thread on this otherwise serious board, but I spent a lot of time here during election season and now that hockey is coming back I happened to be visiting the Phoenix board and saw AP posting there and I realized that most of you folks that I talked too so frequently during the fall didnt overtly identify with a particular team either by screenname or avatar.

I enjoyed talking to many of you and wouldnt mind talking hockey with you now that the season has started, so to facilitate further conversation on other boards, I would invite the politics board denziens to identify their preferred teams here(obviously I am a Preds fan..)

I will find it particularly refreshing if i end up agreeing with some of you for a change...

cheers to all, and happy hockey new year...

Agreed. This goes for a lot of folks around here I may butt heads with.

The reason I first chose my avatar was that it made my team of choice pretty clear.

I am really trying to get the feel for the Oilers. But it is tough...

Bruins fan, with an interest in the Leafs just because of living in Toronto...

Who have you cheered for since they left in 95?

I'm a Red Wings fan, and my name pays homage to former Red Wing Slava Kozlov.

I saw my first game in Nashville this spring Preds. I watched the Oilers dismantle the Preds 6-3. I can't say I was disappointed in the result, but unfortunately for me the Wings were not much better in that first round matchup.

I went with the Whalers for a little while because they were also sort of local and then gave up on the NHL altogether and mostly followed soccer. Now I'm sort of regaining interest a bit through Playstation (haha) and the return of the Jets. Seems like the Nords might not be all that far behind.

I'm a Blues fan. Not a Blackhawks fan.

I am also a big Predators fan. Looking forward to some hockey talk and a friendly Central Division rivalry.

Cheers.

Bruins.

Which makes my friendliness towards Leafdude puzzling.
