Californian and 2011 Miss USA pageant winner is a huge fan of the sport of hockey and her favourite team is the Vancouver Canucks. Now this is way better than finding out that the guy from Glee is a fan. This has been known for awhile but in this recent interview with Fox Sports she goes in depth with how she fell in love with the sport, Canucks and the Sedins.
Here is a snippet of the interview:
FOXSportsWest.com: How did you discover hockey?
Miss USA: It happened this season when I was in Vancouver and went to see a Canucks game. I didn’t know anything about hockey prior to that, and I went to a game and fell in love with the energy and the sportsmanship of the players. It was just insane, so ever since then I’ve been a diehard Vancouver Canucks fan.
FOXSportsWest.com: You must have been upset when they lost the Stanley Cup.
Miss USA: It was disappointing because they were so close. It was only one more game. But to me, I was thinking that they got the President’s Trophy this year and made it to the Stanley Cup finals. There’s always next year.
FOXSportsWest.com: What attracts you to the sport?
Miss USA: I love the speed. I love how you’re always on your toes when you’re watching a hockey game because you’re never sure where (the puck) is going to go. It happens so fast.
FOXSportsWest.com: Favorite player?
Miss USA: I don’t have a favorite player, but I do like watching the Sedins score. I think I like Henrik, but I don’t exactly have a particular favorite.
FOXSportsWest.com: Cutest player?
Miss USA: I don’t really look at the players that much. I’m really into the sport itself.
