Unexpected Hockey Fans

Baroque—who contributes her entertaining genius frequently to the comments of this website, as well as her own posts at HockeyTownTodd—made a comment on this post yesterday that stuck in my head.  She said, “It’s funny how people fall for hockey that you wouldn’t expect to.”

Earlier today I was sorting through the piles of junk on my hard drive and I came across this article I’d kept handy from the LA Daily News.  Written by Tom Hoffarth, it was originally published in January of this year.

I think it’s a great story and it relates to Baroque’s remark rather well so I thought I’d point to it now.  Enjoy.

About Canucks and Beyond

Alanah McGinley has been blogging hockey since 2003 (with a notable gap in time through 2010, kicking it with new baby Lucy while living knee-deep in chaos while reading "parenting for complete idiots" during every spare minute) sharing opinions, rants and not-so-deep thoughts with anyone who will listen.

In addition to writing Canucks & Beyond and helping manage Kukla's Korner, Alanah was one of the founders and co-hosts of The Crazy Canucks Podcast. She has contributed pieces to FoxSports.com and the New York Times Slapshot blog, as well as other stray destinations in cyberspace.

So that's me. Who the hell are you? smile
