General Hospital Star Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up About One Of His Biggest Passions

General Hospital star Dominic Zamprogna recently opened up about one of his biggest passions, and it’s one that he usually doesn’t talk about very often. The actor, who is best known for his role as Dante Falconeri on the hit ABC soap, says that he’s a fan of all the Toronto sports teams and for a big reason, too. Here’s what he has to say.

General Hospital Star Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up About One Of His Biggest Passions

While speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Dom said that his heart belongs to Toronto. He said, “I feel like you don’t have a choice in the matter — you kind of grow up rooting for these hometown teams because it’s such a contagious energy. Hockey is so huge in Canada, but I’m like the least-Canadian Canadian because I never actually played hockey. I played street hockey in, like, church parking lots my whole childhood but I never skated because my parents didn’t really dig the hockey scene of [taking their kids to practice] at 5 a.m. on a Saturday. So, funny enough, I’m a fan of the thing I can’t play. I play soccer, but I’m not a huge fan of watching it; I get more joy out of playing than I do watching, whereas hockey, I get more joy out of watching it because I sucked at it [laughs].”

Dom also admitted that it’s not very hard to keep up with his teams even though he’s living in Los Angeles now and not in Canada anymore. He said, “very professional league has a way to watch games, so I subscribe to the NHL package, the NBA package, MLB. I literally watch everything. I used to watch more, but when you have kids, you get some pretty dirty looks when you watch sports as much as I do; you kind of have to pick and choose. But now that my kids are a little bit older, I’m trying to get them into it. I put on the games and invite them to watch with me, with varying degrees of success so far.”

General Hospital Star Dominic Is All About his Toronto Leafs

When asked why he loves watching the Toronto Leafs play so much, Dom explained, “You know, there aren’t many things in this world that are in the moment. Watching sports, you’re watching real-time, fast, split-second decision-making that results in these beautiful freaking goals. I have so much appreciation for these people’s abilities and talent, and watching them, you’re just thrown completely into the moment.”
