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"

Hockey is the most underrated team sport on earth. Every equivalent record, achievement or feat performed by any other type of athelete a hockey player does on fucking skates!
P1. Micheal Jordan holds the most records in Basketball.

P2. That's nice, Gretzky did it on skates, backwards! Hockey rules!

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
