Sadly, hockey's greatness isn't appreciated everywhere. But in Canada, we live and breathe this game, this one sport is intrinsically what links a nation together, it's a part of our heritage.
We even celebrate "Hockey Day in Canada." The passion and love for this game extends to young and old alike, children in pee wee games across the country dream about living the ultimate fantasy and playing in the NHL.
Nothing brings together a city more than a winning local team, nothing brings together a country more than winning on an international level(again, and again and again, I might add).
I get goosebumps when the crowd sings along with O' Canada, I feel giddy when I hear the HNIC theme song, I leave work early or skip class when my schedule interferes with a hockey game, I wear my hockey jersies proudly after a big win, I have crazy game day rituals and I jump up when we score. I'm blissfully happy when my team wins and torn after a loss.
DON'T TELL ME IT'S JUST A GAME.
Hockey: It's fast paced. It's exciting. You have to be a true athlete to play it. Every game is unique unlike baseball where I see the same Fucking diving catch that I could make in a heart beat.
Basketball: Yeah fast pace, insane dunks are cool however I've never seen so many babies getting minorly tapped or complaining that someone grazed their hand while shooting. Fouls are for fags!
Baseball: The most boring sport in the world. It's a fun sport to play but it's like watching paint dry. Also, you can be an overweight loser who has good hand-eye cordnation and be a superstar. I've chewd tobacco a number of years and what kind of sport allows you to playn chew honestly
Football: Maybe if the game didn't stop after every 10 seconds I'd like it!!!
Biff: Naa I fell asleep in the 2nd inning
