OFB reader Kathleen today gave us an encouraging heads-up from a recent shopping trip in the area:
“In the check-out line at Shopper’s [Food Warehouse] I was drooling looking over the candy to my right and I looked up to the generic Starbucks, Barnes & Noble, and Old Navy $25 gift cards that are always there.¬†But this time was different. What did I see?¬†A $25 gift card to¬†NHL.com, that’s what.¬†Almost bought it too, just for kicks.¬† Wanted to share my hockey moment, in hopes that maybe . . . just maybe . . . hockey truly is catching on in this town.”
Have you noticed similarly unusual bursts of pro hockey enthusiasm among area merchants this summer?¬†Or just unexpected brushes with our game, in unexpected places? Share them with us if so.
