I'm not talking about some heavily padded game where morons slide around on frozen water and think with their fists. I'm talking about HOCKEY. The real hockey. What Americans call "field" hockey. And just before you make some ridiculous claim that "Ice hockey is way better, and has been around longer and is way more popular" check the facts.
1.) Field hockey is an Olympic sport with a world cup.
2.) It's played in North America, South America, Aisa, Australia, and Europe.
3.) It's vastly popular in places like England, The Netherlands, China, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Spain, Argentina, India, Pakistan, The United States, ect.
4.) There are famous field hockey players; Teun De Noojer, Christopher Zeller, Nikki Hudson, ect.
5.) The earliest forms of the game date back to 500BC, and depictions from the ancient Egyptians playing hockey (the real hockey that is) have been discovered.

Oh and before you go saying how "it's a girl's sport", think again. Some of the best players in the world are men. The only reason, the U.S. views it like that is because it was introduced to the country in the early 1900's via an English Woman.
Ice hockey player; "I play hockey."
Field hockey player; "Awesome, I use a Dita Terra V40, what about you?"
Ice hockey player; "What the hell is a Dita? I use a Bauer!"
Field hockey player; "Ohhhh, you must mean you play Ice hockey. Cause the real hockey is "field" hockey. But just call it hockey cause that's the name it deserves."
Ice hockey player; *goes to put on shoes with knives and slide around a solid water source.

The best and most entertaining sport out there. PERIOD.

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.
There is something seriously wrong with you if you don't passionately love hockey.

Hockey is the fastest paced most exciting sport in North America, but is also one of the least covered. The object of the game is to hit a rubber, circular obect (the puck) into a net while wearing skates. Thge game is played on ice with 5 players and 1 goalie on the ice at a time. Hockey was invented in either Montreal, Kingston, Halifax or Windsor, depending on who you talk to. Hockey is by far the most popular sport in Canada and expansion of the NHL in the southern USA is a long running pet-peeve of Canadians, most of whom can't fugure out why anyone would rather watch baseball, football or basketball. Ranks with soccer as the hardest team sport to master at the highest level.
Frank (Canadian): Did you go see the hockey game yeserday?
Jim: Nah, I stayed home and watched baseball.
Frank: (Breaks into laughter)

A sport that requires people to hit a small disc or Puck around with sticks while the players are on ice. The game was invented by Canadians and they tend to call it the best sport ever and anything american is terrible. But I'm American and actually like Hockey just as much as I like Baseball, so I'm a true fan because I like sports and not bitch about which sport is better or not. Sadly ESPN or any other sports channel doesn't want to show the damn game because they don't like it as much as Handegg, which is really a stupid sport.
Hockey is pretty fun to watch.

The best sport ever, hands down. McGill University in Montreal was the first place to hold an organized hockey game between two informal teams in 1875. In 1877, McGill students established the first organized hockey team. It is said that McGill students founded modern hockey, creating the puck and the first set of rules. The first hockey game in the States was played at St. Paul's School in Concord, NH on the Lower School Pond.
Hockey, unlike golf, poker, pool, darts, hot dog eating contests and whatever other shit ESPN has recently decided is a sport, is an exciting and demanding game. While baseball games would put anyone to sleep, hockey would not.
