When I put out on Twitter yesterday that I had an idea to do a series profiling women hockey fans, I never expected the response I received. I assumed that perhaps a few of my friends would be interested, and that was it. Boy, was I wrong! Women from all over the world – fans of all different teams – contacted me.
I wanted to do something new and different. We know about the players, the coaches, the staff – or that information is readily available for reading. But what about the fans? Without them, the game would not be half as interesting. And – sorry, men – how do women hockey fans become interested in the sport? What do they like or dislike about it? I know my own story, but there are so many different tales to tell.
Over the next few weeks – or as long as I keep getting responses – I’ll be posting these women’s profiles. Get to know your fellow fans.
If you’re interested in being profiled, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org – the more, the merrier! Two to three times a week I will post an interview – I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
