Mike Arace has a nice piece in The Dispatch this morning about our local hockey team’s tenth birthday. The whole thing is worth reading, a nice summary of how far the team and our city have come since that first season. Hockey appreciation has grown fast in this town, almost at a level that is comparable to our neighbors in the north, and by that think of the State of Ohio, not just Michigan. But don’t get too cocky, Columbus. A few weeks ago, a local youth association had its House evaluations and many families did not show up because the sessions conflicted with the OSU-Miami football game.
Nationwide will be noisy tonight once again, thanks to all the Blackhawk fans. I just hope this continues forever.
