|Straight stolen from The Hartfordite|
At Sad City we are unabashed supporters of local hockey. Sad City holds season tickets to the CT Whale, and hope that one day in the not too distant future we will be holding season tickets to our new NHL team. You have to believe in something right?
Our friend Dennis House is also a big supporter of local hockey and often has hockey guests on his Sunday Face The State program. Last week long time hockey analyst John Buccigross visited Face The State to talk about hockey in Hartford. It's a must watch as Mr. Buccigross gives a journalist (for those that read too many blogs, that means unbiased) and legitimate opinion of Hartford's chances of getting a hockey team. The answers from Mr. Buccigross are both encouraging and discouraging, but always honest. It's an excellent interview by Mr. House, especially the second half, where his questions are absolutely spot on. The videos take too long to load but are worth the wait. Interview after the jump.
There's a lot of people working to improve our city, more than we could ever mention or learn about, but just as we are suckers for Mickey Tettleton, we like the guys swinging for the fences. These days, it's fair to say the NHL is the 0-2 home run ball for Hartford. If you want it, keep pushing, keep thinking, keep swinging, and keep showing up. Markets react to demand. And always, always, keep the hope.
