Over the past week it became obvious that hockey fans are a special group. We love the game so much that other sports are secondary at best, and other sports fans just scratch their heads trying to understand our terminology and dedication to the game. Hockey fans hashed out what sets us apart from other fans on Twitter with the hashtag #YouKnowYoureAHockeyFan. Here are just a few of the great responses from you guys.
Reason 1. Outlook on life
#YouKnowYoureAHockeyFan when every accomplishment in the day feels like it deserves a goal horn blast.
