A Conversation for Ice Hockey
Little Mischief Started conversation Oct 14, 1999
While the mechanics of hockey are all very interesting, and although fighting was mentioned, what was overlooked is the fact that the fights are the attraction. As I do not have an extensive knowledge (or any at all for that matter) of European hockey, I can only draw from it's American counterpart for point of view. Watching your home team score a goal is all very nice, but the main attraction is blood on the ice. You go to the game to watch your team beat the living tar out of the other team. Everything else is a sideshow, albeit very entertaining as well.
