I began following the Carolina Hurricanes towards the end of 2008, my first full year living in Raleigh after graduating from Campbell. My roommate at the time always commented on how we needed to start attending games and once we finally did I was hooked on the fast pace of the game, the roar of the loudest arena in the NHL, and of course the awesome stadium food. That year happened to be the year we unexpectedly made it to the conference finals.
While the Canes aren't having the same results this year, the game is still fast, the roar from the crowd is still loud, and the stadium food is still excellent.

After the second period and the Canes' deficit growing even larger, I went to search for more culinary comforts. The scent of searing beef and sauteed onions drew me to the cheesesteak station. Despite a couple of dry cheesesauce-less bites, the sandwich was flavorful.
The Canes at the end of the game made a valiant attempt to comeback but weren't successful. But even with the absent of a winning season there are still tons of reasons to come and support the Canes, one being that eight of the team's owners are based in North Carolina. Overall it's a fun time with a fun crowd while eating great food.
