Just my opinion but…….

Most of us hockey fans take what we have for granted. We dont realized the quality of our sport compared to others.As a hockey fan, I am just flat out thankful for hockey. The greatest game on earth. When you compare it to other sports, none even come close.

Baseball- Well don’t get me wrong its an american past time, and I am american but for me baseball is just to slow paced. And when you have many players taking performance enhancing drugs, players who set records, players who were all time greats. Contrary to D!ck Pounds assesment of hockey, in my opinion, fewer then 3% of the league takes performance enhancing drugs. And is it just me, or does any one else find it hilarious that some one who makes such stupid and incorrect accusations be named D ick?

Football- Well foot ball does have the hard hitting and grit of hockey, but its all overshadowed by stupid celebrations from players who make less then average plays. Also the stoppage inbetween EVERY play to me is way to annoying. O yeah, can any one say DRUG problems? How many times in a week during the football season do we hear of players or ex players – getting suspended for substance abuse or possesion of drug paraphenalia, ehem (Michael Irvin). Any brightlight in the NFL is overshadowed by MORONS like Terell Owens who in my opinion deserves a bat to the head. You signed the damn contract, now honour it.

Basketball- Umm, boring. To me is the most BORING sport of all. The refs never enforce the rules. I cant remember the last time a travel was called. And whats so exciting about a 6’10 player dunking a ball every 20 seconds? Nothing. Every one in the league thinks there a bad ass or a gangsta or whatever ridiculous terms these players come up with. You play the softest sport in the history of the world. Theres nothing tough about this game.

Hockey- The greatest sport of all time. We have EVERYTHING. Hard hitting, creative plays, grit, and at the end of the day, some of the most heartfelt players of them all. Correct me if im wrong, but is there a dress code in hockey? I dont think so, but the players wear suits and ties anyway. We dont have the huge drug problems other leagues have, or the enormous steriod problems. Players here, when they signt a contract, they damn well honour it even if they dont like it. There not selfish, they realize its only a game. And yes, there have been a few discrepencies here or there. The whole Mike Danton issue, and the Gretzky/Tocchet Gambling ring. But thats only two in how many years? More then that happens in 3 days in football or basket ball.

Maybe Im just a die hard hockey fan who thinks to highly of his sport. Maybe im wrong, but what does everyone think?

    Thanks Gretzkin, thats the thing, I wasnt sure if it is a written or just spoke rule, but either way, hockey players do it, and they dont complain. Not like Terrell Owens wearin his combat gear to games, or Allen Iverson complaining becuase he cant wear is 3 foot long chains around his neck and actually has to wear pants that are within 10 sizes of his waist.

    Easy there on the criticizing of americans buddy, the point of this article was not to criticize american sports becauseI do love baseball but when compared to hockey, its no contest. The point was to show how superior hockey is to every other sport, and that hockey fans as a whole have more then plenty to be thankful for.

    id take that then having a ball that could kill me being thrown at my head every 3 innings. And its Shaq, not Shak. Must not be much of a basketball fan are ya?

  5. Gretzkin says:

    Though I never mentioned it, Tennis is pretty awesome.

    I prefer watching the women.

    Besides the fact that they look wicked hot in their little outfits, I find they have more exciting games than their male counterparts. Not all just Ace, Ace, Ace, Out, Ace…

    We could do the laser tag thing, but have the whole contest above a huge stadium. That way, when a ‘copter gets hit (with lasers), it could trigger massive explosions on the ground, showing which helicopter got hit.

    With punk or metal bands (not my cup of tea, yer suitable) rocking out on the ground, dancing girls, etc…

    It could be quite the spectacle, without the carnage.

    If you look at my standings basketball isn’t at the top (mainly because when i play i’m not tall enough or jump high enough to dunk the ball which limits my game hence why its not higher in my standings) but the only teams i watch are the Raptors, Pistons and Suns when there is no Wings or Sens games on…don’t really like Shaq anyways he gets away with too much crap…my favorite centre would be Big Ben Wallace of the Pistons

    You said it right every 3 innings (boring to play too) and maybe one pitch a game would go at your head if you crowded the plate…how many have died from a pitch yet? also i’d rather take 100 mph pitches then get into the octagon with Chuck Lidell or Randy Couture for a couple of rounds

    Its obvious you hate basketball just like i hate baseball and it doesn’t matter what we say because we are not going to change the others mind on this

    I know its not that big in most of America, but its huge here in NY. And isnt it the Canadian national sport?

    1. Hockey

    2. Lacrosse- Fast paced, physical, constant play, shooting on a goalie. All much like hockey.

    3. All European Sports(rugby, gaelick football, hurling)- They are all pretty much the same fast physical games, played by crazy bastards.

    4. Football

    5. Snowboarding

    6. Basketball(streetball no NBA)

    Well, it’s not the original cup, but I’m with you on the fact that it is the greatest sports trophy of all time. I always grew up wanting to sip beer, or champagne, or both out of the cup. What can you do in basketball, dump a bottle of champage over a big golden basketball, or baseball with the flags of all the teams in the league…no drinking there but hey there’s the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, and the SuperBowl, well see basketball and change the big golden globe to a big silver football…you get the point.
