When my grandmother immigrated to the United States from Germany 90 years ago, she was already a sports fan. But mainstream sports in the US didn't offer anything with which she was familiar -- like soccer -- especially in her new hometown of Philadelphia.
In 1967 the Philadelphia Flyers debuted, and with it 47 years (and counting) of dedicated fandom from Helen Moser, my grandmother.
Ice hockey was similar enough to her beloved soccer, and also introduced her to a new rapid pace that she instantly loved.
