Hockey fan

I grew up spending weekends in ice rinks around the Northeast U.S.  It all started when we took my younger brother to an Air Force Academy ice hockey game and he fell in love with the sport...did I mention he was two years old?  My mom signed him up for skating lessons which began on his third birthday.  My parents (and I) knew nothing of the sport, but learned right along with him for the next fifteen years.  Undoubtedly, our folks were the real troopers getting him to hockey practice at the ungodly hour of 4:30am.

The Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup last night and I watched from the comfort of my home.  During the game, I grew increasingly thankful for social media becuase the rest of the living room looked like this...
To be fair, my husband is from Tennessee and probably didn't see ice hockey in person until he was an adult and had to be up early for work today.
But I was so grateful for my Twitter feed...and even Facebook.
I felt more connected to the action I was watching on TV thanks to comments on plays and especially goals.  Engaging with fans around the country (and world for that matter) via Twitter...it was a beautiful thing!

Yesterday, I came across this blog post about being a Twitter Evangelist and if you've been reading this blog for long, you might dub me one.

Congrats to the Boston Bruins!
