The best SPORT in the world! Well known for being played on ice with a hockey stick and puck.
Until recently, it was mostly played in the colder countries and far North America (areas of the US taken over by Canadians). However, America has yielded some of the best players and teams. See Mike Modano, Bill Guerin, and Chris Chelios. Also see the Dallas Stars and Detroit Red Wings.
Hockey has also moved into the deep south (areas that don't really know what ice is) and turned many towns into hockey towns. See Dallas, Atlanta, San Jose, Phoenix, and Nashville.
me: Did you see the game last night (could only be talking about hockey)
co-worker: Yeah, the Stars kicked ass!
me: You know it. I think we could be a Stanley Cup contender this year.
co-worker: Hell yeah!
Together: GO STARS!

The best sport in the world.

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!!!
Frank: Did you watch that baseball game yesterday?

Biff: Naa I fell asleep in the 2nd inning

Biff: Did you watch that hockey game today

Frank: I'm american, I'm too stupid to like hockey

Pretty cool sport popular in Canada, Russia, and the US. The Major league is the NHL, which has such upcomming young stars like Alexander Ovechkin and veterens like Jaromir Jagr

Seriesly though, Shut the fuck with argueing over what sport is superior then any other. Just because baseball is boring for you dosn't mean you can post up your OPINIONS on an Urban DICTIONARY on how much you hate it. Hockeys great, baseballs great, basketball's great, footballs great, just stop bickering.
Canadian: Baseball is so boring, there all fat n basketball so is a pussy sport n Hockey is so cool n it's dominated by canadians cuz the US is so bad n....

American: Hey, you know what's pathetic?

Canadian: What?

American: You

1) A sport originating in England, not played on ice but on foot, not using a puck but a ball. After hockey had developed in the British Isles in the late 19th century, it spread throughout the British Empire, largely due to the British army and this is one reason why India, Pakistan and Australia are so formidable (all were British colonies). Today, hockey is played all over the world by a variety of countries and is currently the second largest team sport in the world, just behind football (that's soccer to those who didn't realise).
2) A faster way of saying ice hockey.

Note - Both are good sports that need speed, stamina, skill etc, I'm just clearing up that it is seldom recognised that field hockey was the original.
1) John - "Do you wana go and play hockey?"
Matt - "Yea, I'll go get my shoes and a ball"
2) Jimmy - "Do u wana play hockey?"
Billy - "Yea, I'll go and get my skates and a puck"

A sport played solely by badass people.

It takes the most skill to play hockey than any other sport simply because you have to know how to ice skate and handle a hard rubber puck with a stick while 200 pound Canadians are trying to kill you. Hockey makes football look like badminton.

There is nothing quite like creating a yard sale on the ice after smashing some plugs head into the boards followed by a nice lead pass to your winger who toeys some go hard Gerard with bad flow wearing a tinted window, then gives you the puck backdoor with a dirty ragu, bar and down. Gino. Turn the light on. Enough said.
If you play hockey, you're a real man.
