I feel the same. I watch the puck as it travels, the guys move, hit, block and create action. There's always something to watch. Far more fun in person at the game.
My FL-born neighbor who is a huge sports fan, is mystified with hockey. He has little interest in it, if he has any.
I grew up with it being from Boston and in a family of sports fans. I started following hockey in 1967 from when Bobby Orr came up and they traded for Esposito. It was very exciting times. I remained a fan, although I stopped following it from around the early-'90s onward. I recently got back into it a about 3 yrs ago.
