I’ve never been much of a fan of spectator sports. I don’t watch television, and I don’t really follow any major league teams.
And then, 4 years ago, we moved to the Upper Valley of New Hampshire. Since I could not (at the time) play hockey myself, we decided to take in a game at the local Thompson Arena, home of Dartmouth Women’s Hockey.
We were hooked! Soon, my sweetie & I found ourselves eagerly awaiting home games, and felt our spirits rise and fall with the fate of our team. Since Dartmouth’s program is one of the best in the country, we have enjoyed some top-notch hockey at Thompson Arena.

Last week was no exception… even my mom, who isn’t much of a sports fan either, found herself clapping and cheering for our winning women, who are undefeated so far this year.
So, if you have never been to a Dartmouth Women’s Hockey game, do yourself a favor and get over to Thompson Arena on November 23, when our ladies take on St. Lawrence. Puck drops at 7 pm.
See you there… I’ll be the one in the felt hat, knitting up a frenzy, just above the blue line. Go Big Green!
