Haha, you're so mad that Californians support hockey regardless of race. Time to go find a sport that's whiter.

I agree man. Growing up in SJ, I have known many die-hard SJ Sharks fans of all different races. Personally, I know a diehard fans of Filipino, Indian, Persian backgrounds.

oh bullcrap. i wasn't even thinking about race when i said san jose fans are stupid if they think they're anywhere close to as rowdy to compare to places i've been and if you seriously think that i was then you're delusional. i'm not in denial like you; i have the common sense to know that hockey is a white majority sport whether it's in san jose or friggin boston. and the fact that you are trying to act like you have some diverse little utopia up in the san jose stands is laughable. wow, 2 asian computer geeks in your section out not for the game as much as to relax and enjoy the only sport (and some sort of nightlife) san jose has to offer vs 298 white people in the same section. you must be proud.

i'm not denying that there are a few real fans of other races but to sit here and act like san jose is the embodiment of diversity in hockey is a joke. it's no different in that it's majority white than almost every other city with a hockey team.

i was in buffalo for a hockey game, saw a few blacks and arabs there. but does 5% of an arena being non white make it this diverse bastion? uh, no.

That was never the point of contention. You said that hockey could not possibly be successful in a place with this ethnic makeup. That's a very different statement.

no, i never said that it was impossible to be successful. obviously hockey is successful in these places including la or else they would get the hell out of there. but i am saying that hockey is a white majority sport and anybody who thinks that san jose fans are so mixed that i should be amazed at their diversity is out of their mind and that there is no city out west with hockey fans as rowdy as there are in the northeast, upper midwest, and canada. you can sell tickets anywhere in this country just about, they sell tickets in phx. but does that make a phoenix game "rowdy?" hell no.

anybody denying any of the things i said above right here is in denial, doesn't know a thing about hockey, or has never been to a hockey game in places like buffalo or even a bar or restaurant around cities like buffalo on the night of a hockey game.

San Jose is not on DC's level in any way shape or form. It would make more sense to compare San Jose to NoVa.

No, it really wouldn't. That's more like the 680 corridor.

Nah, the 680 corridor is like 12 suburbs, NoVa is much larger and its sprawl is a lot less confined by hills, like San Jose .
