The true hockey fans know that it is important to show our National Hockey League pride whenever possible. One of the best ways to show everyone just how much we love hockey is to wear our hockey jerseys as often as we can. Not only will wearing our jerseys around everywhere support the team we favor but it will also hopefully convert people to hockey fans by opening conversation and getting public interest involved.
Even if you’re not a season ticket holder for your favorite team you should still own at least one of their hockey jerseys. Make the investment in the team’s future so that you can go to the games and wear your hockey jersey in the stadium. No one goes to a hockey game dressed in a suit and tie anymore; that died out in the forties. Now it is all about the hockey jersey and you must wear it whenever you enter the home of your favorite team. Better yet, wear your favorite team’s jersey in a rival team’s stadium, that’s always fun!
Beer and hockey go very well together and that’s why you should always try to wear a hockey jersey when you head out to your favorite sports bar. Hang out with all of your buddies at the bar and have a few cold ones and talk about all the best hockey plays. Speak loudly and boast about your favorite team. Try to get the rest of the bar involved and make sure that the televisions are playing hockey and not something stupid like basketball.
This should be a no brainer but if you are a hockey fan you should also love playing hockey. That means you’re going to get out on the rink, be it ice or cement, and play hockey as much as you possibly can. That also means that you should be wearing your hockey jerseys out on the rink as much as possible too. I like to own one home and one away jersey so that I can switch colors during pick up games to balance the teams.
Even if you’re a boring old couch potato who does nothing but watch sports and Oprah all day you can still show your dedication to the great sport of hockey by wearing your jerseys around the house. Wear them in your underwear and wear them to bed, wear them while you’re sitting at the computer reading the latest statistics and wear them while you eat chips in front of the television. If you don’t wear them at home you’ll never wear them in public.
The goal of this hockey jersey wearing exercise is to draw attention to the fans of the sport so that the sport itself gets more attention. The more people that go out every day wearing a hockey jersey instead of a regular shirt the more people will get interested in the sport. It is sort of like subliminal messaging. The more a person sees hockey paraphernalia, the more they are going to get curious about it and the more passionate they will become in following it.
