I don't even know the New York hockey team, Rangers, I think? Probably the first hockey game I ever watched all the way through, and I loved it. Definitely be watching next season, especially since it sounds like the NFL is going to be a bust for me again next season.
Definitely the Caps. I honestly don't know enough about the game right now to know who else to root for. In football, I would watch every game that aired. But with hockey being an 84 game season and doing series, may only be able to follow Washington.
ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country, is pretty much all the politics we aught know. it's problematic and in practice it doesn't work all the time, but that's the gist of it all.
