For the first 22 years of my life, I didn’t “get” sports. I’d always been semi-interested in hockey, and when I was younger, I occasionally watched football and baseball. The former was mostly because my friends were into it. The latter because my parents were. Aside from that, I never paid much attention to professional sports. It wasn’t until a fateful day at work in early 2008 that I began to take notice of hockey.
