All you hockey fans out there will cringe when I say this, but despite living in the "original Hockey Town, USA," I am just not that much of a fan. I know, it's like someone living in Hershey and not liking chocolate. Or living in Orlando and not giving a rip about Disney.
I have turned down hockey writing assignments, preferring to "LinkIn' and cue up other, far more knowledgeable writers than me. What I do love, though, is the team spirit and cheering for the hometown. So when the local Chamber of Commerce wanted to submit an article to a hockey magazine on the newly, renovated hockey arena, I thought, I am all over that.
And, admittedly, what a fun experience it was. I really do adore this little town and the new arena really is very exciting. And where else can you call up a professional player's mom to do a quick fact check? Exactly.
I like it more already.
