    A few. But ****, growing up in Danvers in the 80s, just north of Boston, somehow that was Giants country. Pats were an afterthought until the Bledsoe years, and didn't really take off until they upset the Rams.

    Yeah no kidding. I still remember Super Bowl 38 pretty well. :cry:

    Thats okay though, I wanted the Hurricanes to be the first team in the state to win a pro championship, but at that time they sucked and the Panthers looked like they would be contenders for years. Got my wish 2 years later though :yo:

    I don't think so. Climate is.. uh...sub-optimal. Culture doesn't help either.
    It was getting kinda popular in the 80/90's because a lot of movies pictured hockey games/jerseys (ie. Ferris Bueller) but then it just faded away. We barely get any coverage, ESPN Brasil aired about 1 season game per week, almost all of them were hawks/pens. 0 canes games :(
