On 99.5 The Wolf's facebook page today, they were giving away a pair of tickets to the Stars game tomorrow night agains the Pens. You just had to say why you were a fan of hockey. Here's what I wrote:
"I love hockey for the sounds of the game - the ice skating across fresh ice, the sound of the puck hitting a post as it goes into the net, the sound of a well-placed check against the boards. It's the fight of the game; the fight of 6 players grinding out against the other teams' 6 players to get a win. It's every guy giving his all for every second of every shift. It's watching as a goalie backstops his team to a win, making spectacular saves where he's standing on his head to keep the puck from going in. It's watching guys stand up for their teammates when a player from the opposing team tries to take a teammate out. It's the fans - hockey has some of the most passionate fans of any sport I've ever seen. It's each guy playing for the logo on his jersey. And that is why I love hockey."
Well...I won! I've never won a contest...ever. Funny that I should win on the thing I have a passion for!
