Hockey Games

 
Everybody loves it when the team scores a goal. This is what all hockey fans extol. The lights start flashing and the siren sounds. Cheering is heard from the seats that abounds. Many fans go to hockey games each night. However, I go to see the players fight. After some hooking, slashing, or a mean cross-check, the victim wants to break the other player’s neck. They drop their gloves and throw a left hook. Before you know it, there is a big donnybrook. Each of the three twenty-minute periods is nice. It is all like World War Three on ice.

    I am a huge hockey and Blackhawks fan, I had the privilege to have season tickets back in the 87-88 season in the stadium..Some of the best hockey I have ever witnessed.

    "God Bless America". The only time I have ever been enthusiastic about hockey was when the Flyers won their two consecutive Stanley Cups (it now seems too long ago) back in 1974-75. They get into the playoffs, but never seem to go far anymore. They were lucky enough to meet the Blackhawks in the finals a few years ago, but disappointment was inevitable. Thank you for reading this one which I thought would never receive attention.
