Anyone who has known me longer than, oh, 5 minutes expresses shock and surprise to find out that I love hockey. Even after a couple of years as a fan of the sport, my own parents still sometimes ask, "Who are you, and what have you done with our daughter?" (To be fair, that's largely payback for asking them the same in reverse when they became football fans.) Truly, it is rather inconsistent with everything else about me. At least...on the surface.
