Go to games. There's nothing like live hockey. I love baseball. It's majestic sometimes. It's wonderful. But hockey in person trumps it in my opinion.
And as much as I root against Detroit, I wouldn't call you a bandwagoner for cheering for them.
Columbus however is starting to turn a corner, now might be a good time to get in on the ground floor.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
