Take notes, NFL. That's how you show respect and preserve your fan base.

I can respect that.
Unfortunately I would rather watch paint dry than to watch hockey.

You need to go to a live game with 2 good teams. Can't imagine anyone would not get hooked.

Don't let this distract you from the fact that Globo Gym blew a 4-1 man advantage over young Justin to let Average Joes come back to win the ADAA International Dodgeball Tournament, creating one of the greatest upsets in sporting history.

I was wondering how many of the protesting gang-bangers made it to the Pro Bowl?

Give it a fair chance. Catch the semi final games during playoffs between rival teams. You might be surprised how intense playoff hockey is.

Not with Fertitta, it's well known Les Alexander wanted absolutely nothing to do with sharing an arena with another professional team. I believe it will get a much more fair shake with Tilman at the helm.

Pro Bowl had more viewers than the final game of the Stanley Cup.

Glad they all stood in respect for our Flag and Anthem, but protecting your fan base when there's only 30 or 40 people in that base ain't too hard... When I was in school "up North" I went to some hockey games with them... even was at a game where Bobby Orr got a hat trick... Still tryin' to figger' that one out... all those hats that go flyin' in the rink, court, field or whatever you call the frozen pond where they were playin' that hockey stuff...

I have been to 2 NHL games and they are electric. I don't understand all the rules but it is great to watch.

Grew up with Gordy Howe and Bobby Hull myself.

Stanley cup hockey live is best spectator sport. If you have not attended a game in final series, you have no clue......
