hockey fans nhl fans maple leafs fans

Are hockey fans really empirically better than the fans of every other sport? I don’t know. Fandom is pretty subjective. To be honest, when I came up with the title of this list, I was just trying to pull a Buzzfeed and use hyperbole to appeal to a very specific demographic.

That being said, you won’t find many people unwilling to concede the fact that hockey fans are awesome. Their passion is through the roof and their loyalty is unmatched. Anyone who’s ever been to a Stanley Cup playoff game can testify to that.

So while it may be impossible to say hockey fans are the best fans, they definitely deserve a 37-GIF tribute. Take a look and get pumped up.
