There, I said it. In fact, I grew up saying that “hockey is my favorite sport.” My childhood room always had a hockey motif. I collected hockey cards. I played a year of ice hockey. And I did all of this from the cornfields of Omaha, Nebraska, where I was born and where I lived until just before my 11th birthday.
Let me just say that it’s a hard thing to be both born in Omaha and be a hockey fan. Thank goodness for the Omaha Knights.
The Knights were the chief farm team for the New York Rangers so we got to see some pretty good players come through, the most notable of whom may be André “Moose” Dupont who went on to win a couple of Stanley Cups with the Philadelphia Flyers. The coach of those Flyers teams? Fred Shero who, before that, coached the Knights.
