I played at Elbel all the time while in school. Michigan hockey players were frequently playing with us over there.
If you know anybody who plays, let me know and maybe we can get something going.
To add to my post: up until about 6 years ago when the hawks got good, I used to go to every Wings/hawks game and there were 75% Wings fans there. With "Let's go Red Wings" chants drowning out the moronic "Detroit Sucks" chants the mouth breather "fans" are so pleased about. See, there's one difference, we actually cheer on our team rather than just denigrating the opposing team. That's the kinda thing that a Nashville fanbase does, i.e., know-nothing hockey fans.
I got a free ticket from a friend to a hawks/avs game about 10 years ago. Even though I hate both teams, I figured I'd go just to see a pro game. There couldn't have been more than 5000 people in attendence. It was disgraceful for an Original Six team. Tell me again how great that hawks fanbase is. What a joke.

I'm from Michigan and played hockey since the late 70s.
After I graduated from UM in 95, I lived in San Fran for a year as I thought of going to grad school at either Cal or Stanford (top programs for my field of study). That didn't turn out and I eventually needed to get a real job to support myself. But in the meantime, I found multiple places to play inline hockey in SF neighborhoods as well as an indoor rink there, not far from Giants' stadium.
I ended up moving to Chicago as I had some contacts here and family still in Detroit area. I was pretty happy to be moving back to an Original Six city, thinking I'd get all kinda hockey action here. Well, turns out, if I talked to anyone about hockey here, they looked at me like I was from the moon. They don't give the least amount of fucks about it unless their team is in first place.
I've only found one place to play outdoor inline hockey here and that was from some random Craigslist post I found, and they only played at 10 in the morning on Sundays on the far north side of the city. You'll never find a group of people just playing in some neighborhood here. People don't play or care about the game in the city. I did end up playing at Johnny's Ice House for a few years when I had some friends from Detroit who played here.
I realize that old man Wirzt did plenty to hurt hockey in this city, but you are full of shit if you think the people here care the slightest about it when the Hawks are no good. It is the biggest bandwagon population in professional sports.

The Hockey Gods were happy to let the Wings win while no one had hope. As soon as hope was in the fans' hearts, the Gods took it away.

Well, also, after the whole Te'o thing, ND pretty much has to distance itself from any player scandals.

They need young blood. Winning with the worlds best squad by 25 points over the second place team isn't enough. Next year they'll win by 50!
|3 weeks 3 days ago||What a great final||
That play by Subotic to save a goal may have been the best defensive play I've ever seen.
Cheers to Bayern, though I could never root for them against any German squad.
I'd like to see Ribery spend 2 minutes on the ice amongst NHLers. What a flopping pansy.

No it's not, nothing to see here. Move along.

Thanks so much, Heiko and Al.
This gave me so much joy to read at work. Getting to the Bubble Screen stuff was priceless.

I meant to reply to michimoby and his/her comments about a political figure.
But still, a politician was elected by some percent of the electorate. Now, go poll everyone in the universe you ever meet and find out how many actually liked the Cathy comic strip. Your argument is invalid.

Boos and Booze (vodka water + lime)! If the duckies weren't so focused on whining and imploding, we'd be doomed.

Mr. Perry, your bag of dicks is ready.

I had to go $77.16 for Lewan staying and for Denard bein' Denard.

Nice that we had to wait 10 minutes for Ohio spring game overflow.
It's not freakin' live, edit that crap!
|11 weeks 6 days ago||UGH!||
Found it, but it's sold out in wearable sizes everywhere. Bummer.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah,||
Exactly. Where'd you find that? Great look, particularly compared to most of the tacky team gear.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||You would think he's done,||
But it was pretty surprising that the fans really didn't go negative on the home team.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||WOW!||
That was the sweetest nil-nil draw I've ever seen.
Sure, we got some breaks, but considering the squad we were fielding, this was pretty remarkable. Beasley with a yellow 7 minutes in made me think we were absolutely doomed.
I've got to get one of those shirts that Klinsmann was wearing. That was pretty killer.
