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
Reason 2. Dedication to the game
Reason 3. Other sports are secondary
Reason 4. Very… unique terminology
Here’s a bonus tweet from our hashtag a few weeks ago #ThingsYouCanDoIn17Seconds. Awesome.
