    Balls in play for five seconds. Everyone stands around for a couple minutes. Balls in play for five seconds. Everyone stands around for a couple minutes. Rinse and repeat for a few hours.

    That about sums up football.

    Take a game where you've gotta keep track of a small peice of rubber three inches wide, flying around a hundred miles an hour, while trying not to get killed by the 250lb guys flying around all over the place ALL ON ICE.

    Yeah, I'll watch Hockey over Football anyday.

    Thankfully, you're in the vast, vast minority here in America... It used to drive the Canucks insane when our company would go to Canada on business and didn't know a damned thing about hockey... Oh, were they livid... I thought it was hillarious... Same thing when I went to Switzerland.. I grew up in Indianapolis, so the Indianapolis 500 was my life.. I had no idea who Michael Schumacher was, nor did I care... Oh, how they would insult the constant left turns of the Indy 500.. Again, just hillarious how stupid they got over a sport.

    While I do enjoy the NHL, there are far more pressing matters to concentrate on in the world of sports.

    Namely:

    1) Major League Baseball, pennant races, playoffs & World Series
    2) College Football
    3) The National Football League

    I'll probably start paying attention to the NHL in February.

    AMP - I hear ya - GO WINGS.


    But I must admit that right now I am pre-occupied with football.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.
