Why I love Fantasy Hockey
As a young boy, I use to take the 9v battery out of the freezer at night just to get another 10-15 minutes out of the transistor radio to hear Lloyd Pettit paint the picture of Bobby Hull's blistering slap shot rip the nets or Tony O. making the gloved save.
As I build my career in computers, I lost touch with my love for the Blackhawks and hockey in general.
I was fortunate enough to play in a fantasy baseball league with a wonder full commissioner (Canadian) that offered a team in his fantasy Hockey league. I joined just before the Crosby years and enjoyed my favorite team draft Kane and Toews then, beyond belief, winning the cup!
My love for Fantasy Hockey is rooted in my long love of Hockey itself. Fantasy Hockey allowed me to keep my finger on the pulse of the great game itself.
