Bay Area native, but I now go to school in Chicago. I must say that I can't stand the obnoxious Blackhawks fans, ...I'm not going to even start on Red Wings fans, but I have had some great hockey conversations with many Blues fans here.
From watching Blues games from my floormates Center Ice package I have become somewhat the Blues fan over the course of this year. Anyways, just wanted to express my gratitude towards your fanbase, and wish you the best of luck. Here's hoping I can still tolerate you when it's over.
