Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mark Spector of the National Post,
If you’re going to strap on the gear and pull a National Hockey League sweater over your head the way every one of us Canadian boys dreamed of our entire lives—still have the dream once in a while, actually—then you should be ready to take an elbow (or a set of bare knuckles) in the chops once in a while.
Hard, tough hockey is at the root of why Canada is a one-sport nation. Sure, we play ‘em all. But there is only one we are the best in the world at; only one we would choose, if we were stranded on a desert island with only one specialty channel.
We’re rougher, and we fight more than everyone else. We’re hard to play against because we are a fearsome competitor. Beating us at hockey hurts, and the moment they start taking pain out of the game, all those other nations are going to take a step closer to Canada.
