Let me start by saying that I have very little knowledge of hockey. I understand the concept of the game as a whole, but up until about 2 years ago I really couldn’t have explained off-sides or icing to someone if my life depended on it. Come to think of it, I probably still couldn’t explain icing without going cross-eyed and peeing my pants a little bit. Not to mention the fact that you can tie and somehow earn points with overtime wins? I just pooped my pants a little bit.
Having said that, I LOVE watching playoff hockey. The intensity and physical artistry of the game is absolutely incredible during the playoffs, these guys are ridiculous athletes. Have you ever tried to play hockey? On real ice?? It’s damn near impossible.
In the cross-check gif above, Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman knocked an unsuspecting zebra on his ass worse than Mayweather did Ortiz back in 2011:
I mean, if you’ve ever played competitive sports then you probably had a moment or two when you felt like Mike Tyson-ing a ref during the game, after the game, maybe by his car or as he’s walking alone in the parking lot with no witnesses?
Gotta love hockey, I’ll say this…..those guys sure do walk the walk with less talk than any other sport.
