Because, I'm one of those people whom, once football is over-with*, switches over to my other favorite Violent Sport Of Choice™ which happens to be hockey. I came to love it watching the D-1 college my signifigant other covered in Omaha (GO MAVS!), and when we had to move to the 5th Circle of Hell (it's the cold one) it became my only salvation in a place where winter lasts 6-7 months. I just like the sport, and it satiates my need for violence during the time when there is almost nothing** worth watching.
So am I just some crazy hockey-loving freak of nature, or are there any others out there in BHGP land that would support a Hawkeye Hockey team?
*Yes, I'm well aware that football isn't quite over yet - but 2 months is a long time damnit!
**with all due respect to the institute that is Iowa Basketball you can't tell me replacing the wood in Carver with ice wouldn't make things more interesting for a basketball game. I'd PAY MONEY to see that.
