Many people consider Detroit to be Hockey Town. Some people consider it to be the Twin Cities. For me, it is Madison.
Some are fans of the National Hockey League, especially because they have family and friends who play professional hockey. Some parents have children who play youth or high school hockey. For me, it has always been college hockey. Not just any college hockey but University of Wisconsin hockey.
It does not matter to me whether it is the men or women playing hockey. It does not matter to me what the outcomes are. It was wonderful when the UW men beat Denver January 23 in Madison and it has been wonderful that the UW women are near the top of their sport.
Hockey fans are not like fans of other sports and I am fortunate to live in a hockey town again.
