i found myself unable to sleep last night so switched on the tv. not alot on at 4am as usual, so i went with ice hockey. i've watched it before but only bits of it. last night was a full NHL match between black hawks and the other team's name i can't remember.
crazy is all i can say!
all it is is watching men skate around fast on the ice, it's impossible to see the puck. the only time i knew someone had scored was when the commentators said so, i swear i never saw that puck hit the back of the goal.
then what's all the incidental music about? bursts of pop music and some bizarre tunes....
then there's the fights! i knew already that the referees let the fights take place but it was the fight replay that got me. the way the commentators commentate on the fight was hilarious! commenting on the quality of punch thrown and how well it was landed! it went from ice hockey commentary to boxing commentary.
top quality entertainment! if not totally bizarre......
i know it's a big sport in usa and more so in canada. maybe i need to be american or canadian to appreciate it all?
