I've always been a hockey fan, watch all the Wings games and even some of the others if it's an off night.

Thanks Offsides

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.

Man where are you guys finding the ladies that are interested in actually following hockey??

I haven't been able to get any of my girlfriends into hockey. My last girlfriend I had her somewhat picking up on the Wings and well, I had to break up with her for other reasons.

She absolutely is in love with Howard lol. But she is also the worst luck when going to games. We went to 3 games this year and all 3 were losses. 2 of which were shutouts!!! She also went during the injury plague of last year when Lebda was on the 2nd pairing Posted Image. Either way, fear not, the girl is Wingaholic but she will not be at the Joe for a little while Posted Image

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


And he doesnt like hockey? must not have had a ton of friends growing up :lol:

p.s. I see your location is Midland...I was born there

My gf never watched a game of hockey in her life before we met. She's a born and raised SE Michigan native, and is traditionally really into the Pistons. However, I think she's lost interest since she's never wanted to watch a game since we met.

We met in the middle of the 2008 playoffs, and she watched every game with me. She was very open minded about it, asked about the game, and got pretty into it during the Stanley Cup Finals. She even bought us tickets to go to a few games during the following season. While she doesn't want to watch every game like I do, she does like to watch the important games with me, and is always willing to go to the JLA for games. All in all, she's a good sport!

I don't have a boyfriend, and the last one didn't like hockey (like 99.9% of the population around here). Yep, thinking about moving to Michigan. ;)

You know what's even worse, though? I can't fault a guy for not liking hockey in Southern California, but I went to a dance in high school with this guy whose dad had an awesome late-'60s Corvette, and when I asked him about it, he said, "I'm not much of a car guy." Really? Come ON! What's the point of being a guy if you don't like cars? Your DAD knows better - what happened to you? Yeah, that didn't really work out too well... Yet another reason to move to MI - you guys get the car thing.

But back to hockey...I got a couple of my female friends to watch some of the playoffs with me, though. I think one was at least sort of into it, so I'm glad I wasn't boring them to death. Of course, she just moved back here from SF, so her adopt-a-team is the Sharks, which caused a few problems during the second round, but she was nice about it because she knew I was suicidally depressed afterward, hehe. Maybe I can get her to go to a game with me for my birthday in December...

Nobody lives forever.
Some things never die.
Like up in the land of ice and snow,
They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

One of my ex's used to call peroids innings.
My fiance is finally warming up to hockey. She know's all the current Wings names/numbers and has a pretty good understanding of the basic rules, but only really gets excited during the playoffs.
Our wedding is this October and I bought her an Abdelkader jersey as a welcome to the family gift - plus I asked the reverand to sneek "during the NHL regular season and in playoffs". - TRUE

EDIT: She also named our dog Raffi
