  • Jenn says:

    I love the atmosphere of the stadium when we all get together to watch the game and cheer on our team :)

  • Lee Drever says:

    Hockey is an analog antidote to modern life. It connects Canadians to their neighbours, present and past.

  • Jen says:

    I love the excitement it brings and team work!

  • Janet says:

    I love that hockey brings people together. Everyone is just happy to cheer for their favorite team!

  • Steph says:

    I love how hockey makes everyone stop and watch the game, whether at work around a computer or on the telly or at a bar. It’s what makes us Canadian!!

  • Linda says:

    I wanna go so bad!!!!

  • T. says:

    I love how hockey brings Canada together!

  • Lesley says:

    I love how the action of the game keeps me at the edge of my seat (if it’s a good game). I love how the crowd collectively cheers for goals and groan when a shot’s missed. I love how it feels to be in the actual arena and cheering for my team – or even at a restaurant to cheer for Team Canada I can’t go to the game. I love how passionate fans get – but we could do without the riots. I love how Vancouver sounded when we won gold in 2010. I remember where I was when Team Canada won gold in 2002. I remember watching my first NHL game in Montreal. I remember how my heart was pounding when the Habs won in overtime against the Bruins.

    In short: I love Hockey :)

    (ps: sorry for the essay!)

    My fave thing is the passion Canadians have for Hockey and the energy and such loyal fans. The states are not die hard fans like Canadians.

    I love how its quick, a team sport and how the emotions are so raw for the players and the spectators alike.

  • Kevin says:

    I love hockey because its a sport that gives us moments like the last goal Burrows scored in Game 7 against the Hawks. It’s love, its hate, its nailbiting excitment. It’s a sport that cannot be duplicated.

  • Dolly says:

    It’s Canada’s game!

  • Stephanie Wong says:

    I love the excitement leading up to a goal and waiting for that one goal!! Plus the players <3 and the Canadian love for hockey !
