I mean it's common knowledge to all of us, but to non-sports fans...I thought it was funny anyway.
Also when I was living at home my mom got pissed and yelled 'When did your room turn into JLA?! Stop screaming at the TV they can't hear you!!'

She watches games with me and/or lets me watch in general 'cause on many game nights I am kind enough to give her back/foot rubs
She also happens to like Cujo; that began when he was with the Maple Leafs.

my wife was born and raised in Pittsburgh
she is knowledgable about the pens and wings, as i keep her updated. if she was not with me, she would not care what was going on with either team. but, she likes to go to games, and will watch games with me. with both pearl jam and hockey i would say "she doesn't love it, but likes it enough to enjoy it with me."

watches every live game w/ me and sometimes will deal with the NHL network.
She's slowly learned the ways of buttman and cindy crosby.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Pfft. My dad was a football coach, and I have been a hard-core Lions fan for over 4 decades. I know football. I just like hockey better.
He just doesn't understand.
My dad, on the other hand, lucked out. My mom didn't like sports, but now she's a big Wings fan. She can even carry on intelligent conversations about it, although they can be a bit vague and funny like most of her conversations.
Money on the board! Current total: $2
$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster. +$5 if one scores a hat trick.
+$1 if a GWG. +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.
$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.
The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)
Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan
Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd
Jordin Damien Gustav James

Before we were married, my wife pretty much knew that hockey was playing on ice and they use sticks, but that was about it. About 1 month after we were married, I sat her down and we watched Miracle, then the 2002 Stanley Cup DVD, then a week later I took her to a preseason game in Tampa, and she was hooked. She watched the entire playoffs with me, even called out of work for game 5 of the Finals, and would have done a victory lap with me had she not been 6 months pregnant. We took our son to another game in Tampa when he was a month old, and she is as excited for the season to start as I am, she has been teaching extra piano lessons to save up to go to the Wings@Lightning game this year. I really lucked out.
I love your wean-on strategy.

My wife will come to games with me, but she isn't really into watching games on TV or listening on the radio.
Same thing with my girlfriend, except during the playoffs - she'll watch games then. She also got kind of into Team USA during the Winter Olympics.
