Andy & I started watching Dartmouth Women’s Hockey shortly after moving to the Upper Valley in 2004. We’re season ticket holders, and rarely miss a game at Thompson Arena.
Although their names are not on the back of their jerseys (because “Dartmouth” on the front is the name that matters most), we know every player by sight.
We know their strengths, we know their regular positions, and we notice when players get paired up into new line combinations.
We are what you’d call Big Green “Super Fans.”
So when we learned that the Dartmouth Women’s Hockey team would be skating at Frozen Fenway, I knew I had to go.
It was an exciting, back and forth game, with Dartmouth’s Camille Dumais netting the game-winning goal in the final minute.
Sometimes, it’s Heaven that freezes over.
I have so many bloggy friends who are SUPER hockey fans. It’s funny, because before I started blogging, I didn’t know anybody who loved hockey and now I know at least 10 other hockey superfans including you! Gotta love the Internet 🙂
I know we Super Fans are biased, but hockey really is the most exciting sport! If you get a chance to take in a game, go for it!
