(How I Became a [Female] Hockey Fan)!
So my dad was always a big sports fan in general. I adored baseball and football, and still do, but hockey honestly wasn't my thing. I watched some games before, but I just never found it interesting and around the beginning of last season things started to change. My dad was watching games and I couldn't help but get interested too. And before you know I was yelling at the tv along with him. Ever since then I have been a HUGE Montreal Canadiens fan, and in love with Carey Price <3 A friend of mine actually got me addicted to the Pens as well and they are actually another favorite team, and I was so proud when Sid got to hoist that cup! Especially after the finals they suffered the year before. Now, hockey is a big part of my life, and I can barely go a day without at least watching a game of either teams, especially saturday nights. Hope it wasn't too boring and thanks for letting me share!
Julia,Like many female fans, Julia is not alone in the fact that her father's love of sports and sudden interest in hockey sparked an interest that will likely last a lifetime and thats an amazing thing! THANKS for telling us how you got to be such a big hockey fan, Julia!! Even though the wounds are still fresh from the Pens season-ending loss to the Habs, I still have a lot of respect for any fan who sticks by their team (even if its a team other than the Pens)!!
Don't forget, if you wish to submit your story, I kindly ask that you email them directly to me so they don't end up being repetitive for some of the readers. Also, if you don't want me to include your name, please let me know that as well (what I'll normally do is put your first name and last initial if I have it OR just your screen name).
