Perhaps it's because I'm getting older, but it seems to me the Playoffs get better and better each year. Yet, in the United States... hockey is invisible. It's a scourge on our nation that must be eradicated.

Thankfully, I have a plan.

We all have those friends that are huge sports fans, but that don't follow hockey. These poor souls are the targets. This Saturday, get a bunch of guys together to watch a game -- not just your hockey-watchin' buddies, but get the all-sports-except-hockey guys too. Tell 'em there'll be beer and pizza, it won't be too hard. Doesn't matter which game, tho I suggest the NBC Penguins/Senators game. Make it a fun atmosphere -- act like you're at the game. Answer any questions, but don't treat them like idiots either. Just let them enjoy and take in what they see.

The speed, skill, and intensity of this game is infectious -- you already know that by your mere presence at this site. START INFECTING PEOPLE!!!

If you're familiar with CSS, you can use the Template Editor in your control panel.

No offense, but if you aren't a programmer, you're going to have some difficulty... it's pretty complex and pretty cryptic...If you google "CSS reference", you may find some how-to's...

The only way to grow hockey in the US is with grassroots. Until American kids grow up playing hockey the way they do in Canada, hockey will continue to be a fringe sport in the US, in spite of Bettman's vain and stupid efforts.

Ruutu, I somewhat disagree. Personally, I had never played the game. But you do make a good point.
