Glens Falls, New York, to me, is a hockey town. Growing up I got to see so many awesome teams with A+ jerseys and at that time that is all that mattered because lets face it, as a kid the only thing you’re really looking at is who looks cooler. I’ll never forget walking into the Civic Center and seeing the legendary Barry Melrose standing by the beer line, mullet flowing in the breeze, embracing his inner hockey fan. As awesome as this was, hockey has been a roller coaster for the last few years. Teams coming and leaving left me feeling lost, without control. These were dire times but you know what? Not anymore. The Adirondack Thunder are here and they are here to stay.
Jack, from Two Buttons Deep, and I attended the Thunders Teddy Bear Toss game and boy oh boy it did NOT disappoint. Jack and I were literally there for 5 minutes and we both felt we already had gotten everything we needed to show you guys what hockey in Glens Falls was about. That right there is why I love hockey north of Saratoga. The fans are real meat and potato type people and are so incredibly loyal to their hockey teams. One word to describe Adirondack Thunder Fans? Passion.
