My girlfriend doesn't understand the obsession yet. The thing that really drove her nuts was the playoff beard last playoffs. I explained it, and she understood, but still didn't like it :P

The only things she really knows is Avery is a pansie and Crosby is a whiny little *****. So she's getting there :) She also knows about Probert, and understands how much his passing meant to the hockey community. RIP Probie

She hasn't picked out a favorite player yet, I'm thinking this year she will :)

Am jealous. Why am I stuck with the only guy I know who couldn't care less about sports?? My bf thinks I am certifiable and need serious meds/counseling when it comes to hockey. I have Center Ice and will watch like 5 games a day and he just shakes his head. And ... get this ... he is originally FROM CANADA!! Oh well, hopefully he never makes me choose or hes SOL. :P

My wife never gave a rat's ass about hockey (I would be weeping openly watching a gold metal hockey victory & she wouldn't give a second look). However,that all changed in 2008 when a local kid whose parents we know well was called up to the Wings. She immediatley became interested & as the kid won a regular shift & the Wings went to win the Cup, she never missed a moment. It got so good that she approved me buying the NHL center ice package so we could watch every game last season. She wants to buy NHL CI again this year & was just commenting how she can hardly wait for the season to begin.She says she misses Ken Daniels & Micky Redmond & even Doc Emry. The kid is Darren Helm & I can never thank him enough!!

My wife would probably fit in the category of casual fan. She knows the names of the top players and Detroit and the Joe Louis Arena are special places to us because we got engaged after a Wings game in a hotel not far from the Joe. But she doesn't watch the games with me because she says I'm "too intense" and when the Pens play the Wings I always hear, "You live in Pittsburgh. You should be cheering for the Penguins!" She doesn't like the pressure of being a Wings fan in Pittsburgh. All her friends are (bandwagon) Pens fans and she doesn't want to be the odd one out. After 24 years of being a fan, I'm used to the me against the world scenario. :cool:

I'd hope my wife is smart enough not to say that to me ;)

She's worn her Wings stuff out and been yelled out and taunted by Squawks fans, I just keep telling her that thats why its important we beat them every single time we play them.

Wow. I must be the luckiest man on earth. I am crazy hockey addicted... and she's worse than me. She could tell you all 4 lines and defensive pairings of the 90s thru today, the numbers they wore, and how many points they got. She could tell you who we traded to get Kyle Calder.... as obscure as that is. She's been a hockey fan longer Than me and she's younger, but I credit that to her being a 'gander and I'm a Chicago native. She's an active poster here and has been for years. I've had to go to such lengths as to hold her back from jumping over the glass at western Michigan games when we played Ohio state. I love it, her, and wouldn't have it any other way. Its part of why we moved back from San Francisco... so we can go to more home games!

my wife likes Ovechkin cause he's always excited and fun to watch...and cause he looks like a caveman. she finds him humourous.

i think she's starting to become a bit of a wings fan, but she often claims she hates hockey due to the fact that the general perception people have is hockey means more to me than anything and that i ignore her...

that's not really fair though...i only ignore EVERYTHING and EVERYONE during Wings games! :lol:

she's coming around though.

we went to brandon to see the wheat kings pound the regina pats. she had a great time at that game.

Instead of my girlfriend putting her actual name into my list of contacts when I got my new phone, she put her name as "Zetterberg's Girl" That probably tells you all you need to know.

My ex hated hockey and hated how much I watched it, talked about it and loved it. It was a pretty big dividing point. This is why she is my ex.

My girl friend likes going to Wings games but she's not really a fan of watching the games on TV. Sucks sometimes but oh well.
