Hockey report


A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

Hockey report

Postby Pego » Sat Jan 05, 2013 7:21 am

For those few that care, USA U-20 hockey team just beat Sweden 3-1 to win the world championship in Ufa, Russia.

A pat on the back for everybody that knows where Ufa is without peeking :wink: .

Ufa is not that far from Birsk.

...and Russia beats Canada 6-5 in overtime for the bronze. Lotsa pissing and moaning in central Canada.

ironically, isn't "oo-fa!" (that's the phonetics) a common Swedish exclamation?

Hockey ? What is hockey ?

Oh, wait, is that the sport that used to have a professional league called the National Hockey League ?

You're thinking of a money laundering operation that masqueraded as a professional sports league. Hockey Hall Of Famers Arthur Wirtz and Jim D Norris were bagmen for the New York, Chicago and St. Louis mob.

cue Twilight Zone music. This evening I watched an old episode of History Detectives (great show!), and the focus was on Ufa, which was the German movie studio that did such greats as Metropolis and Blue Angel, but then became a Nazi propaganda arm.

Man, you can say that again! And this time they had all these young stars that would ordinarily be playing for their NHL teams, guys like Nugent-Hopkins. Obviously the top young goalies are not Canadian.
Sometimes it gets to me with all this "Our Game" talk.

It appears that the NHL owners and players have reached a tentative agreement.
