I live in a hockey house.

If you didn't know the Detroit Red Wings are in the Stanley Cup playoffs right now. As I'm typing this up they're in the middle of the 3rd period against the Dallas Stars in Game 6.

One of the traditons I'm told is playoff beards. Jim and Chris have shaved but Zach is growing his playoff beard. Don't tell him but it reminds me of Shaggy from Scooby Doo :)

Tonight at dinner Jim realized that the reason Detroit lost the last 2 games is because he hadn't been drinking a Sam Adams Honey Porter beer during the game - 1 beer a period to be exact.

Tonight he's got his beer and so far it appears to be working. 4-1 in Detroit's favor.

Does your household have any crazy hockey traditions?
