Best hockey city?
DEC 20, 2013 2:41p ET
FOX Sports Detroit Girls Angela and Stephanie are taking on the FOX Sports North Girls Angie, Kaylin and Kendall in the quest for the best hockey city in America. The two FOX Sports regions will encourage fans to join the hashtag tug-o-war by using #Hockeytown for Detroit and #StateOfHockey for Minneapolis.
"The pride, passion and potential of our city is unmatched," said Angela. "Detroit is Hockeytown for so many reasons: our 11 Stanley Cup Championships, the names hanging in the rafters like Gordie Howe, Sid Abel, Ted Lindsay, Alex Delvecchio, Terry Sawchuk and Steve Yzerman and the way fans get behind our team whether in the stands at the Joe, at home or on the ice themselves. We are an Original 6 Team. We are Hockeytown."
The competition kicks off at the 2014 Hockeytown Winter Festival in Detroit. Angie and Kendall of the FOX Sports North Girls will join Angela and Stephanie at the FOX Sports Detroit interactive tent. You can take your photo with the FOX Sports Girls from 11 am - 1 pm on December 31 at the Winter Festival at Comerica Park and again from 11 am - 1 pm on January 1 at the Fan Fest at Michigan Stadium.
The losing region of the hashtag tug-o-war will have to lip-sync a song of an artist from the winning state and send the winning region a care package with items from their state/town.
Tweets will be featured on FOXSportsDetroit.com along with the hashtag tug-o-war updates.
