Hockey Redwings Lover
Hockey is one of the fastest, most popular sports in the world today. Hockey continues to gain popularity in North America and the fan bases are growing aside from being considered to be the European equivalent of America's love of baseball. A player's physical attribute is being tested on hockey to the extreme. This isn't a sport to miss out on not even a single game. Whether you're fascinated by the fast skating, awed by the lightning-fast slap shots, or you just like watching to see the bone-crunching crosschecks, here are some tips for being a great hockey fan.
Pick the closest professional or minor league team close to you; they could be in the NHL, AHL, ECHL, WHL, basically anything short that ends with 'HL' that means Hockey League.
Study the rules and violations of the game. Even though you're a fan and not necessarily play the game, it's a plus when meeting people later on that you know the basics, such as an Icing, Off-sides, Roughing, Boarding, High Sticking, Slashing, etc. By doing this, you will be able to understand when you watch the game why the referee make a call.
Grab a schedule, you can check on the internet or if you know the website of your team, they post a schedule where you can print it.
Enjoy some games on television. Depending on your area, NHL Hockey might be with your standard cable or satellite, call ahead to check your local listing.
Meet other people who enjoy and or just learning hockey. You can do this by chatting on the net and discuss a game. Most cities have fan based clubs or groups that go to games together so check them out.
Go to a game by purchasing Redwings Tickets. You have been waiting, preparing and looking forward the whole time for this game. I advise that you buy a Third Level seat and Redwings Tickets have it. These are surprisingly cheap and they offer a great view of the game conducive for energetic reactions.
To promote your team it is recommended to get a jersey. Many fans get their jerseys customized with the name and number of their chosen player on it.
Carry on and broaden your love for the game. From here you can buy mini/season ticket plans, tailgate before games, stay after games for autographs, so many things you can do! Enjoy the sport, and enjoy the game.
