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

    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 🙂

    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.

    Hockey is Canadian national sport! Can’t wait until Sunday, hope they can get a couple of wins before then though.

    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.

    I love the suspense leading up to a goal, the way you just anticipate and you see it coming and when they scored, the way you just get up and scream! Just love how when theres big events for hockey, its big everywhere
