Hurricanes fan here, although I’m rooting for the Oilers in the West (simply because I don’t think a Stanley Cup Finals is appropriate without a Canadian delegation )
Yeah, Hockey sure as heck isn’t the most popular sport, mainly because it’s hard to understand for the average passerby. I mean, if I just start watching a baseball game I know exactly which pitch is a strike and which is a ball. Oh, and in the NBA, if you take exactly one too many steps then you travel. And who can forget football, where there’s offensive holding on just about every single play but they only call it once every 10 plays
That said, I like most sports; Hockey may not be for everyone just as NASCAR, the WNBA, Formula 1, the AFL, MLS, the PGA, and the PBA isn’t for everyone (just to name a few).
