Reflecting On Herm2Hockeytown

A Facebook post by Andrew VooX,

Eleven years ago, a hundred Red Wings fans who were internet friends got together to watch a hockey game at Joe Louis arena in Detroit. Inspired by a comment made on an Red Wings hockey blog, they raised money to fly their hockey-loving Brazilian friend to Detroit so that he could watch his first live hockey game with them. And thus, Herm2Hockeytown was born and a bunch of virtual Red Wings friends became real-life friends and celebrated their love for the game together.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
