The conversation went exactly like this:

Huffer: "Excuse me, where can I find a Dallas Stars jersey?"
Employee: "Dallas Starters?"
Huffer: "No, Stars, Dallas Stars"
Employee: "Starters???"
Huffer: "No STARS,"
Employee: "Ohhh, that's hockey, right?"
Huffer: "Yeah, hockey,"
Employee: "No, we don't have any of those, sorry,"

Pretty much what I had expected, but funny nonetheless.
Thats pretty much how it is. You might occationally find an aeros fan the closer you get to the arena they play at. But really theres no one to talk hockey with. One more reason this site is so great!
