My husband LOOOOOVES hockey. Loves all sports, really. But, he LOOOOVES the Pgh Penguins. Part of his early Christmas present, was the ‘hockey package’ on cable. :rolleyes: Whatever, if it makes him happy. lol
He is watching the Penguins now…and a fight just broke out. He said…‘stop what you’re doing, you have to see this fight!’ :o Ok…so I watch it (they replayed it) and it looked horrible. I don’t understand why this is allowed, and it’s not allowed in say baseball and football. There is no need for this in my opinion. He said, ‘that’s the way it will always be, honey.’ :rolleyes: He went on to say that in some ways it has caused hockey not to become as popular as other sports because of the fighting. (from a participation point of view)
Anyways…why doesn’t the NHL ban this already? :shrug: Also–thinking logically…these young athletes are wasting a lot of precious energy on fighting…when it should be all for the game.
