Kukla's Korner Hockey

Afternoon Line

I can only hope for the day when a kid in Texas can strap on a pair of blades in June and skate on an outdoor surface that simulates real ice. Only then does hockey have a chance to crack the national consciousness more often than when a Winter Classic game or Stanley Cup final is played.

But I don’t care today.

I am still fondly remembering Thursday’s Classic. It was a day to celebrate the sport for those who know it best and a chance to showcase it to the non-believers, and it was pulled off superbly.

If the rest of the U.S. wants to watch fly fishing, well, that’s their problem.
