I found this on a Chicago Blackhaws blog thanks to my "google alerts." It's from a post on Second City Hockey called "As Long As They Don't Take My Seat" which discusses "bandwagon fans"(in the comments section). The comment was made by a female fan, but it sounds like she's a little fearful of coming right out and saying she thinks the players are attractive by what she posts:
Also found thanks to Twitter, the slightly scary (but they do actually know hockey) “Hockey for the Ladies” blog had a post on “Western Conference Hottie” Duncan Keith yesterday. Find it if you dare… KofCSlightly scary? Find it if you dare? Come on, sweetie, it's OK to be a female fan and allow yourself to enjoy the sights as well as the game ... there's NO SHAME in it if you know hockey and aren't there to pick up a husband - there's always a place for you at HftL (we really don't bite!) and we'll welcome you openly!!
Her comment did stir up some curiousity for the site, so we may have some new readers as well (THANK YOU, KofC), so WELCOME!!! We even have a ECEC suggestion ... gotta remember Brent Sopel. ; )
this is me being helpful and using Google
- the Trib piece
- the Hockey for the Ladies piece (let me put my girl hat on for a minute here— why the fuck do they have a page for Patrick Kane? Mind-boggling.) @ChiBlackhawks
Help please with Hockey for the Ladies site?But PLEASE let me educate a few of the Blackhawk (and possibly other) fans commenting on the post that women ARE NOT "only into hockey because of the cute young players!" Are we, ladies?!! Nope!! I (and the readers of this blog) LOVE hockey just as much as the next fan!!
Thanks for the link. Just went there to find some inform on my favorite Blackhawk, Brent Sopel. Can't seem to find him anywhere. Maybe in the archives? EvilClown
