Like, when they play each other, who do root for? how do you have enough time to follow both of them closely?
I guess I would start by saying I follow them and they are my favorites, but maybe they don't meet your definition of being passionate about. I think it is different when you live or grew up in a place that doesn't have an NHL team. You're allowed to pick and choose a bit more, or something happens that makes you like that team. In my case I followed these two teams pretty closely for a good while. That has waned a little bit, since I don't have cable and am not able to watch hockey near as much as I would like.
