    Why would you even post in this diary, if not to simply troll?  

    There are a lot of us that love many things, be it politics, or sports.  

    You've obviously never put skates on made any effort to understand the game.  The grace, skill, power, and intellect that it takes to play the game well is amazing.  

    I'm from Texas and only found hockey when the Stars got here in the early 90's.  After a lifetime of being active and playing sports of all types, hockey is the one sport that truly speaks to me.  It has made me understand the real value of team sports, and turned a serious loner in to a person that is not only able to, but someone that actually appreciates being part of a collective.  

    Shut your mouth and read a little bit, learn something.  It'll do you some good.

      football is too, but it's so scripted. Hockey has more potential for unscripted creativity - also randomness.

      Basketball can be a team sport as well. But it's more about superstars. One hockey star can get lost on a lousy team.

        I find it so painful to watch pro football live.  Take me to a highschool game or college game but I'll pass on the pros - give me a big screen and a DVR.

        And you hit on my issue with Pro basketball. It's more about superstars and loses me.
