So clearly I’m Canadian – I love my hockey, it’s NHL opening day!
Are there any other hockey loving bees here? Who’s your team? Any bees who just need to complain because they’re about to become hockey widows again?

MsGinkgo: GO WILD!! My hubby has a part time job at the local NHL rink/stadium whatever they call it and had free tickets to the last exhbition game. SO FUN! I also spent years in California so I’m fond of the Sharks, too. I was there when the team was just starting out!

MsGinkgo: Woooo!!! Hockey!!! Haha.
I was just having this discussion with 2 co-workers, who are Canadians (Montreal & Leafs fans). They said Canadians live & breathe hockey! Made me laugh when I saw your post.
I’m a Flyers fan. The Broad Street Bullies!! It’s a tough time of year for my FI, who does not like sports, as the remote is pretty much mine mow all week (due to Football & Hockey) 😛

RedHeadKel: Love going to games – sadly leafs tickets are insanely expensive (the cheapest seats/standing room is $60 a person)
Sofetch15: oooh, you have a Habs fan and Leafs fan in your office – that must get ugly! I was born and raised a Leafs fan, my DH bleeds blue and white (thank goodness, not sure I could be married to someone who wasn’t a Leafs fan!) I’m not into football at all, I’m from the east coast and football isn’t really played so I didn’t grow up with it and I don’t get it – we’re all about the hockey! Our hockey fanaticism is a sterotype I’ll happily support 😀

Pens fan here! I’m so excited! Plus, the start of hockey season means no more constant football at our house (except for DH’s Steelers). Can I get a hallelujah?!?
“Once you get into hockey, all other sports just suck.” This is so true for me!

MsGinkgo: Thats OK, I don’t want to be friends with a Leafs fan anyway! 😛

RedHeadKel: WOOOOO WILD! I’m from Minnesota, and started playing hockey the season after I saw my first Wild game (their first season). My father also does contracting work at the Xcel Energy Center, so I would visit all the time as a kid! (If you ever see the awesome doors on the Wild lockeroom, that was all my Dad’s design and his wood shop’s work).
ladyjustice: I also live in Pittsburgh, so the Pens are naturally my second team – especially since my SO loves the Wild with me, so I’ve given in to accepting his Pens 😉

MsGinkgo: I am waiting for a call to find out if I have tickets for tonight… I have an amazing customer who sent me to 6 games last year including the opener…. I’M DYING TO KNOW IF I’M GOING!!!!
My coworker how shares my office is a Habs fan…. She’s wearing a red hoodie today and I told her I’m about close to smack it off of her!!
Go Leafs Go!

LOVE HOCKEY! I’m a Capitals fan, but I moved to Southwest Pennsylvania, so I’m not allowed to admit that too often 😉

ClaudiaKishi: lol 😀
robynrox47: I’m entering every contest I can find to get tickets for tonight – they’re so hard to get (and expensive) chances aren’t good for me but here’s hoping! Fingers crossed for you!

MsGinkgo: It’s getting late..I doubt he had any luck! Last year I got them 3days before… sigh
Now to figure out where to watch… SO is away so he’ll be streaming. I’m ALMOST tempted to go downtown… but that seems like such a mission!
