Pink Puck Photographer Dinur Blum was born in Israel, grew up in San Jose, lived in New England for several years, and is now attending graduate school at University of California, Riverside. But more importantly, Dinur is an avid hockey fan. When he is not studying criminology as well as institutions and organizations, he combines his personal and academic passions researching the sociology of sport. Dinur studies fan evaluations of referees with respect to fairness, why better helmets in football and hockey contribute to dangerous sports, and student athletes’ experiences with school. But in his spare time, he goes to as many hockey games as he can. Dinur’s favorite team is the San Jose Sharks.
