Hockey is one of the greatest sports on the planet. Don't believe me? Here is a list of reasons why hockey is the best to not only watch but also play.
1. The die-hard fans
Every sport has their die-hard fans, but nothing compares to the die-hard's of hockey. Sitting in the 300 level nose bleed seats completely decorated in their teams gear is only half the job. Hockey fans travel far and wide to watch their team. They don't care about being the only one in the entire stadium representing their team, because their loyalty runs deep.
2. The big hits
3. The fights
4. The cellys
5. Lord Stanley
6. The boys
Every hockey player has told me all about how "roadies with the boys" are so much fun. Doesn't matter if you're in AAA, juniors, college, or even NHL. Road trips are always fun and a great opportunity to make some team chemistry. What could possibly be better than pushing hotel beds together to make a massive bed for you and the boys to cuddle on after a big game?
8. Community involvement
Regardless if it's an NHL, Junior hockey, or college team, every teams community comes together to support their players and coaches. Hockey players show the love right back by volunteering and thanking all their supporters for their loyalty. Nothing ismore heart warming than hockey players spending time with kids.
