About Me

Femme Loves Hockey is the reinvention of Flyers.Femme. Since I haven’t changed, here’s the [slightly redacted] post that kicked off my hockey blogging ways:

What’s a fangirl?

Nadine, Femme Loves Hockey blog author

Fangirl (n.): Female hockey fan who knows the rules, the plays, and more about the players than “OMG, he’s so hott.” Not a puck bunny. Not an ice girl. A real fan who happens to have XX chromosomes.

I am a Flyers fangirl.

I’ve been a hockey fan for two decades. (Thanks, Eli.) I go to games, I watch the plays, I drink beer, I yell when the boys suck, and I cheer when they score.  I question the bonehead moves, and I verbally replay the genius ones.

I believe in orange and black.

Through abysmal and winning seasons, the stupid trades and the good ones, and favorite player retirements, I am there. I don’t complain about nosebleed seats, and I treasure the ones right behind the bench when I land them.

I look forward to sharing my take on the Flyers and NHL hockey with you here, from the – coincidentally – female fan perspective.

P.S.: I have a soft-spot for goalies.

  1. My brother was one, and he got me hooked on the game.
  2. Those guys are crazy! Really. When they mess up, there’s no missing it.  And just in case you do, these guys get the world’s biggest “you effed up” signs – lights and foghorns.
  3. Can you say, “Hextall?” I miss him! He was so much fun. No hesitation to mix it up with anyone. *sigh*

2011-2012 Season Forecast

To say there was a shake-up in the Flyers camp over summer is not an understatement. You can read about it in an earlier post. The team looks different, somewhat like when we rebounded from the basement season. But what to make of it all, now that we’ve finished the preseason? Continue reading
