Don't think many are missing the NHL. Even down this way 12 miles from the Garden.
You got the wrong game my friend, that is Football. That is the sport where they are a bunch of sissies. They go to a line, stick their hinies up so the one big shot on the team, who does all the work, can look down at these big girly guys with their hinies facing them. Then the ball...which does not even resemble a ball, this half round, half oblong thing with frilly laces, is tossed back and he looks around scared to death that he might get hit, so he throws it...to some guy who has every padding on known to man, and yet is still to scared...like a prissy sissy girl scout...sees another guy heading towards him...and runs into a safe out of bounds zone so that he won't get hurt. BUT if he does make it to some end zone...which is 50 yards wide and 10 yards deep...who could not get a ball into that!...does some sissy dance for 10 minutes thinking he is all that and a pair of frilly longerie to boot. But even then the stupid game allows for 14 different people to object against the score...which...means you get a bunch of points and not just one, which makes me wonder...why? Then some sissy kicker is supposed to kick the ball over this bar which is the size of Texas...again who could NOT do that, and get 3 points for the maneuver. All the while they can play with the clock, the last 2 minutes of the game taking longer then the first 58 minutes. And in between the game being played, you have women dressing up with very little clothing as they parade their wares on their careers into prostitution when they get older and can no longer do...whatever the heck they are supposed to do...for the team.
Football...what a STUPID GAME!!
Oh but compare this to hockey, which is a bunch of guys wielding a club, with razor blades tied to their feet, which there is no out of bounds and speeds move at 35 mph. They are moving a puck, that not only looks like a buck, is hard rubber, frozen and a mere 3 inches in diameter. And that is supposed to go into a hole that is 6 feet by 4 feet wide protected by a guy that is 7 feet high and 4 feet wide with every pad on known to man. And if you do manage to do the impossible and get the frozen biscuit doing 90 mph into the net, well you get...my, my, my ONE stupid point for doing so. No wonder the scores are typically 3-2 instead of 49-34 or some crazy number sequence like in football. And in hockey, no sissies allowed since Wayne Gretzy left the ice...nope you get a stick to the chest a few times and you just drop the gloves and pound the guys face in...do that on the street and you get a fine and jail time, but in hockey...ahh we are forgiving...just a 5 minute time out. But the greatest thing is, in between times on the ice, us fans are subjected to the humorous little Pee-Wee hockey players who fall down for no reason, but play their heart out in trying to be like their big league counterparts. No stupid half dressed women and no silly final game where if you get lucky, you might win the Superbowl. On no, not with hockey, if you get your name on the Stanley Cup it is because you went through 4 rounds, of up to 7 games to win that prize. When you heft that silver goblet by God you are the darn best that year and deserve it!!
Boys...Hockey is a real game. Football...down right stupid and getting worse every day with all their new sissy rules.
