Your team is out, the playoffs continue. Do you watch? An open forum.

I love hockey.

I love hockey no matter who is playing. I love this sport. I love anything to do with this sport because hockey truly is "the coolest game on ice." My team, the Red Wings, have exited the playoffs in the first round, again. Yet life goes on and so do the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

That's why I keep watching, no matter who is playing. I always have.

Sometimes I find a team to root for the rest of the way, or I already had another team I was watching and rooting for. Sometimes I dislike a team so I automatically root for the other one. Sometimes I'm going in with no reason to root for either team so I wait for one team to give me a reason to root against it. That inevitably happens, usually because of a goon, but sometimes because a player, coach or GM starts whining about something and makes me dislike them enough to want the team to lose. Sometimes a player catches my eye, or a line, or as I watch I like the entire team, so I root for them. Whatever reason develops, one always presents itself.

But the number one reason I keep watching? Simple: I love hockey. I always have, and I always will.

What do you do? Why?
