Kukla's Korner Hockey

What follows is subjective. Ask 10 people to name the best sporting experience in the Bay Area, and they will come up with 10 different but equally plausible lists. As of May 4, 2006, here is mine: 1. Nobody would've predicted this 10 years ago, or even five, but when it comes to excitement and electricity produced for one event, when it comes to passion and that feeling of community that creates a shared experience, nothing right now beats a playoff hockey game at the Shark Tank. Forget about the ratings. Television doesn't do hockey justice. It never has and it never will. Go to the arena. That's where magic is found. You think about places such as Boston, Detroit and Montreal when you think about the best home-ice advantage in the NHL, but San Jose is widely recognized as one of the most difficult places for a visiting team to play.
