We hissed along the polished ice, in games

Confederate.  William Wordsworth, Influence of Natural Objects

 

 

I love those hockey moms.  You know, they say the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull?  Lipstick.  Sarah Palin

 

 

At the height of the Cold War whenever the USA and the Soviet Union met in the sporting area it was against a backdrop of highly tense political negotiations and the very real possibility of nuclear war ... When the USA met the Soviet Union in the Olympics at Lake Placid nobody was expecting an upset.  Hall of Fame: The Upsets   

 

The American team went on to beat Finland and win the Olympic gold.  ibid.

 

 

It was more like a war than a sporting event.  Tony Gubba, UK sports commentator, re US v USSR

 

 

You miss 100% of the shots you dont take.  Wayne Gretsky

 

 

A good hockey player plays where the puck is.  A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be.  Wayne Gretzky

With some 70,000 roaming a downtown area of the city, store windows were smashed and some business premises looted.  Many of the troublemakers fought with each other and the police had to resort to the use of tear gas to disperse rioters after an officer had become trapped in the midst of a mob.  The Independent online article 16th June 2011

‘Then there was a day  December 2nd 1977  when everybody in the street hockey games wanted to be John Wensink.  What happened the night before was the reason.’  Our Tough Guy, ESPN short 2014

They are the most feared players in the NHL whose role isn’t scoring goals, it’s knocking out the opponent.  They’re enforcers.  ibid.  television presenter

 

I think it’s part of the sport.  ibid.  fan

 

Traditionally, the enforcer is that shark in the water that makes sure that the skill players don’t get taken advantage of.  ibid.  Jeff Marek
