When the Seattle Thunderbirds moved to Kent, one thought crossed my mind: Really? Kent? Let me ask you a question, Thunderbirds. If you were forced to drop “Seattle” from your name and become the Kent Thunderbirds, would you have relocated then? You can dodge the question all you want, but we already know the answer.
Then you have the Everett Silvertips. Let’s be honest. If we wanted to hang out with people who let their children run wild until it comes time to beat them publicly, we’d just go to Wal-Mart. It’s cheaper, and the snacks are better.
So what do you do if you’re a local hockey fan?
You can either travel to Kent, or surround yourself with the ultimate white trash fan base. Fun.
Or, you can just go to a UW hockey game in Mountlake Terrace. Avoid traffic, avoid crazy people, and have a good time watching the sport as it was meant to be played. Tickets are only $5, and you can support the Huskies in the process. Why not, right?
We first told you about the Husky hockey team back in October, but we’re here to remind you once again that they could use your support.
The Dawgs return to action this Friday after a nearly two-month long layoff (due to canceled tournaments and the winter holidays). At 5-9 overall (5-4 in Pac 8 play), the Washington hockey team is currently in fifth place in the conference standings with 10 regular season games still to be played.
You can catch two of those games this weekend, as the Dawgs take on the visiting Long Beach State 49ers in non-conference action on Friday (10:00 PM puck drop) and Saturday (6:30 PM). Both games will be played at the Huskies’ home venue, Olympicview Ice Arena in Mountlake Terrace.
