I've never experienced anything like a Blackhawk game in the Old Barn in Chicago. I wouldn't have believed that just people could make that much noise. - TFFriction_Shifter said:
mappy, you should post more offen.Mapei Roida said:I was born and raised in Los Angeles, and hockey never entered my consciousness. Then, when I was in my twenties, a girl from Boston took me to a couple of Kings games. The girl quickly passed from the scene, but for the next fifteen years or so, I was a complete, utter hockey fan. I even had a subscription to the Hockey News, so I could keep up on teams from places like Oshawa and Chicoutimi. A good hockey game seen live can be absolutely breathtaking. The speed. The grace. The violence. The ebb and flow. The comedy. Totally insane.
at how much better the game is live than on TV.Friction_Shifter said:

Of course it gets no better than watching the Philadelphia Flyers live.
